The Quantum Innovators in Computer Science and Mathematics workshop brings together promising researchers working on theoretical aspects of quantum information and computation in computer science and mathematics.
Talks are open for anyone to attend.
The one-day workshop is the third in a series that brings together researchers at Institut de Recherche en Informatique Fondamentale (IRIF), Université Paris-Diderot and the Institute for Quantum Computing, University of Waterloo. It will feature a full day of talks on recent progress in quantum algorithms and complexity theory, and related areas, made by members of the two institutions, with the idea to foster collaboration.

Organic electronics, based on semiconducting and conducting polymers, have been extensively investigated in the past decades and have found commercial applications in lighting panels, smartphone and TV screens using OLEDs (organic light emitting diodes). Many other applications are foreseen to reach the commercial maturity in the future in areas such as transistors, sensors and photovoltaics.

Join us for three days at the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) for Schrödinger's Class November 22 – 24, 2019. You will have the opportunity to attend lectures and engage in hands-on activities focused on the integration of quantum technology into the current teaching curriculum. We will discuss quantum information science and technology to give you a deeper understanding of quantum mechanics.
The deadline to apply is Friday, October 4, 2019.
The goal of the IQC Workshop on Quantum Illumination is to bring together a wide range of participants from these various domains to discuss the state of the art in laboratory research, the range of possible applications, and paths toward those applications.
USEQIP is a two-week program, running May 25-June 5, 2020, on the theoretical and experimental study of quantum information aimed primarily at students one year away from completing their undergraduate studies. The lectures and experiments are geared toward students in engineering, physics, chemistry, mathematics and computer science, though all interested students are invited to apply.
The Quantum Cryptography School for Young Students (QCSYS) is a unique, nine-day enrichment program for students hosted by the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) at the University of Waterloo. QCSYS will run August 6-14, 2020 with students arriving August 5 and departing August 15.
The school offers an interesting blend of lectures, hands-on experiments and group work focused on quantum cryptography — a cutting-edge field that utilizes the fascinating laws of quantum mechanics to develop unbreakable encryption that protects communication.
