In the past few years, notions of quantum complexity have become increasingly important in high-energy theory due to their relation to black hole interiors. This relation stems from the AdS/CFT or holographic correspondence, which relates the properties of quantum field theories to those of gravitational systems. The aim of the meeting is to make progress toward understanding complexity in quantum field theory and holography by stimulating interactions between the high-energy and quantum information communities.
