The field of non-equilibrium quantum dynamics has rapidly progressed in recent years due to a confluence of interdisciplinary advances. These include developments in the theory of random quantum circuits, and experimental breakthroughs in engineering highly controllable, quantum coherent simulators. This school aims to cover a variety of topics at the intersection of modern condensed matter, AMO physics and quantum information including: the dynamics of quantum information, quantum entanglement and thermalization, non-equilibrium phases of matter, open quantum systems, quantum simulations on near-term synthetic quantum platforms, classical simulation of quantum dynamics, quantum error correction, and quantum complexity.
