International Conference on Quantum Communication, Measurement and Computing (QCMC)

  • By Leena Aggarwal
  • 8 January 2018

The International Conference on Quantum Communication, Measurement and Computing (QCMC) was established in 1990 to encourage and bring together scientists and engineers working in the interdisciplinary field of quantum information science and technology.

To date, thirteen such meetings have been held and the fourteenth is being organized by Quantum Science and Technologies Group (QST)Louisiana State University on March 12-16, 2018. QST group conducts research on atomic, molecular, and optical physics, the foundations of quantum mechanics, photonic band gap and meta materials, quantum information theory, quantum complexity theory, quantum error correction, quantum optics, optical quantum computing, quantum sensors, quantum imaging, and relativistic quantum information theory. It collaborates with a number of university and industrial research groups around the world, and we receive financial support for our research from a number of sources.

Southwest Quantum Information and Technology

  • 8 January 2018

SQuInT is a consortium of universities, national labs, and industrial labs, with concentration in the southwestern United States. The SQuInT meeting has a strong tradition of mixing invited talks from world-class leading researchers with talks by junior researchers across the SQuInT network, to promote an interactive environment. The meeting brings together the broad community of researchers in Quantum Information Science, including experimental physicists, theorists, and computer scientists.

The 20th Annual SQuInT Workshop is being organized by the Center for Quantum Information and Control (CQuIC). The CQuIC is a research center co-located at the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque and the University of Arizona in Tucson. Research at CQuIC is focused on on quantum information and computation, quantum control and measurement, quantum metrology, and quantum optics and communication, and they have extensive theoretical and experimental research programs in all these areas

    Workshop on 2D Quantum Metamaterials

    • By Leena Aggarwal
    • 8 January 2018

    The workshop on 2D Quantum Metamaterials is dedicated to the commonalities between fabrication, theoretical prediction, and alternative approaches to tunable quantum materials, including cold-atom realizations. Theoretical efforts served by this new simulation platform include Hubbard model systems, design of 2D materials, and other exotic materials.

    The workshop will be organized around:

    1. all-invited talks by leading researchers

    2. breakout sessions for discussions and future plan

    3. published Workshop Summary Report


    Quantum Leaps

    • By Leena Aggarwal
    • 8 January 2018

    Quantum is an open-access peer-reviewed journal for quantum science and related fields. Quantum is launching a pilot outreach project, Quantum Leaps, where scientists write a rigorous and accessible popular science version of a research paper, which are then reviewed by school students, under the supervision of a researcher. The goals of this project are three-fold:

    1. Teach the process of peer review to school students by direct experience;

    2. Get students interested in the science of quantum computing and information; and

    3. Provide a venue for researchers to showcase effective science communication in quantum sciences.

    After peer review, the best articles will be published in Quantum Views, and the reviewers will be invited to give a talk about the experience. This project is inspired by Frontiers for Young Minds, which implements the same idea in fields such as biology, psychology and space science. Quantum Leaps is coordinated by Chris Ferrie and Lídia del Rio.

    Postdoctoral Fellowships: Condensed Matter and Statistical Physics (CMSP)

    • 29 November 2017

    International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP) seeks applications for postdoctoral positions starting Fall 2018 from outstanding young scientists of any nationality with a strong research record; women are particularly encouraged to apply. With about 30 group members (faculty, visitors, postdocs and graduate students), an intense programme of workshops and conferences, and close collaborations with local scientific institutions such as SISSA, Elettra, and the University of Trieste, the CMSP group provides a vibrant international research environment for postdoctoral fellows. Postdoctoral fellows are also encouraged, and supported, to participate in activities in developing countries in order to promote the mission of the ICTP. 

    ICTP offers internationally competitive remuneration and a number of benefits including a pension contribution and special allowances for family members. Appointments will be made for two years, with the possibility of renewal for one more year. Preference will be given to applicants in the areas of expertise of the CMSP group
