Prof. Giacomo Mauro D Ariano
University of Pavia, Italy
Giacomo Mauro Dâ€™Ariano has transformed the field of quantum information in a powerful paradigm for a re-foundation of quantum theory and physics in general. This has made quantum foundations mainstream in physics, with impact on the community at large, ranging from theoretical physics, quantum labs, computer science, and history and philosophy of physics. The work , proposing information-theoretic postulates to re-derive Quantum Theory, has ultimately led to the well known thorough derivation of the theory  coauthored with his disciples G. Chiribella and P. Perinotti. This originated a new way of working with quantum theory, which is now taught in the new textbook . More recently Giacomo Mauro Dâ€™Ariano has opened the way to extend the information-theoretic paradigm to the derivation of Quantum Field Theory, leading him and his team to derive the complete free theory . All the above foundational works have been subject of popular journals and media coverage, along with fully devoted conference sessions, and books of eminent historians, such as A. Plotnitsky and O. Darrigol. Giacomo Mauro Dâ€™Ariano has derived the above bold ideas from a long experience in quantum information, where he has made seminal contributions to the theory of quantum measurements, proposing ground-breaking procedures that made feasible the dream of actually measuring states and processes in the labs. Such methods currently very popular to all physicists, were originally applied to quantum optics, where Dâ€™Ariano designed himself experimental schemes, and collaborated with leading labs worldwide. Very popular is his pioneering work on quantum tomography, for which Dâ€™Ariano with his team found the first exact algorithm for homodyne tomography [A]. He later generalised the technique to a universal measurement method, and conceived and developed the first experimental schemes-now called ancilla-assisted tomography-that made the characterisation of transformations and measuring apparatuses feasible, by using a single entangled input [B]. Giacomo Mauro Dâ€™Ariano is also well known for proposing entanglement as a tool for improving the precision of quantum measurements [C]-an idea that ultimately lead to the new field of quantum interferometry. He also has proposed many new types of measurements, and with his team he solved long-standing quantum information problems, including the optimal broadcasting of mixed states, the optimal phase-estimation for mixed states, along with optimal protocols for phase cloning [D], and quantum cloning and learning of transformations. He proposed new optical devices and experimental schemes for high sensitivity measurements, and optimisation methods for quantum information processing. With his disciples he introduced the powerful notions of quantum comb [E], which generalises the notions of quantum channel and POVM, and has a wide range of applications in optimisation of quantum measurements, communications, algorithms and protocol in general. The quantum comb framework opened the way for a new understanding of causality in quantum mechanics, with an impact on diverse research directions ranging from quantum causal inference and causal discovery algorithms to the reconciliation of quantum theory with general relativity, where the causal structure itself is dynamical.

Prof. Volodymyr Krasnoholovets
National Academy of Science, Ukraine
I am a physicist, a theorist. My speciality is condensed matter physics. However the foundations of physics are also in the area of my interests. In this line of research, combining my knowledge of condensed matter with the main regulations of quantum physics I try to construct the fundamentals of fundamental physics. The "tool" that has been chosen for such a construction is my particular natural view that in many respects is based on the ancient Vedic philosophy and my long Yogic practice. A great emotional splash of our peaceful revolution of 1989-1991 during which Ukraine gained long-awaited independent and released from the totalitarianism imparted a significant acuity to the tool. Since that time, there have been many events in Ukraine that consistently step by step revived in its democratic values. Ukraine, as a descendant of the first Indo-European civilization, which started as the country of Aratta about 8000 years ago, no doubt will overcome all obstacles and restore democratic self-governing principles. The culture of Aratta remained practically unchanged for over 3000 years! It was the Arattan community which the Vedas called the Golden Age of mankind.
University of Crete, Greece
I was born in Athens, Greece, and grew up in the suburb of Aigaleo, when it was full of nice and lively neighborhoods. After finishing high school there I studied at the School of Applied Mathematical and Physical Sciences, a newly founded school of the well-known and historical National Technical University of Athens . Although NTUAâ€™s principal target is to educate engineers the new schoolâ€™s aim was to educate physical scientists with a strong background in mathematics, physics and engineering (and some computingâ€¦). Thatâ€™s why you need at least 5 years and many exams to get your final BSc/MSc degree. I moved to the beautiful island of Crete for my graduate studies in Microelectronics and Optoelectronics from the Physics Department of the University of Crete (Heraklion, Greece). I was serving my military service when I finished my MSc studies and joined immediately after that the Attosecond Science laboratory at the Institute of Electronic Structure and Lasers â€“ Foundation for Reasearch and Technology Hellas (IESL-FORTH, back to Heraklion of Crete again) as an optics/laser technician.
