This annual summer school series focuses on educating select early-stage graduate students in a stimulating environment of lectures by world-leading researchers covering leading aspects of quantum information. The lecturers are known not only for being leaders in the field, but also for their strong didactic skills. The lecturers are drawn from the areas of computer science, mathematics, chemistry and physics. 

Quantum computation, quantum communication and quantum cryptography are subfields of quantum information processing, an interdisciplinary field of information science and quantum mechanics. The TQC conference series focuses on theoretical aspects of these subfields. The objective of the conference is to bring together researchers so that they can interact with each other and share problems and recent discoveries. It will consist of invited talks, contributed talks and a poster session.

The International QKD Summer School is a five-day program focused on theoretical and experimental aspects of quantum communication with a focus on quantum cryptography. The QKD Summer School aims to provide a solid foundation in relevant approaches and techniques to enable graduate students and young postdoctoral fellows to perform their own independent research.

Join us at the NanoMRI Conference to discuss the varied approaches to imaging spins on the nanometer scale. We will explore applications to the physical and biological science as well as quantum information.

A conference to celebrate the work of Chris Godsil

It is surprising that the characteristic polynomial ofChris Godsil the adjacency matrix of a graph provides a useful window onto combinatorial properties of the graph itself, but this approach to graph theory has been a source of interesting and useful results for over 80 years.

The Undergraduate School on Experimental Quantum Information Processing (USEQIP) is a two-week program on the theoretical and experimental study of quantum information aimed primarily at students completing their third undergraduate year. The lectures and experiments are geared toward students in engineering, physics, chemistry, mathematics and computer science, though all interested students are invited to apply.

An exciting week-long program offered to students in grades 11 to 12.

The Quantum Cryptography School for Young Students (QCSYS) is an exciting week-long program offered to Canadian students in Grades 11-12. This year the program will run through August 12-16, 2013. The program is run by the Institute for Quantum Computing in conjunction with the University of Waterloo
