Come for the fun, stay for the science! Bring your friends and family to celebrate International Women's Day with the Laurier Centre for Women in Science (WinS).
Join us for a fun-filled afternoon featuring science demos, hands-on activities and interactive games. Meet our robot Nao!
Activities will be brought to you by the Centre for Women in Science, Kitchener Public Library, Desire2Learn, Kwartzlab, Diyode, Institute for Quantum Computing, Savvy Planet, Nerd Nite KW, Brick Works Academy and more.

I will introduce the field of quantum simulations from a wide
scientific perspective. Then, I will discuss the relevance of quantum
simulations for reproducing different aspects of quantum physics:
nonrelativistic and relativistic quantum dynamics, physical and unphysical
quantum operations, as well as strong and ultrastrong light-matter
interactions. Finally, I will give examples in the context of trapped-ion
and circuit QED technologies.

Color centers are atomic defects in diamond that possess electronic and nuclear spins.
The rapid progress of experiments with color centers in diamond indicates that
they are promising systems for quantum information processing, and more important for quantum
sensing (imaging) under ambient conditions.

We introduce the notion of strong quantum speedup. To compute this
speedup one must know the classical computational complexity. What is it about the problems of quantum physics and quantum chemistry that enable us to get lower bounds on the classical complexity?
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.
Algebraic Combinatorics: Spectral Graph Theory, Erdös-Ko-Rado Theorems and Quantum Information Theory
A conference to celebrate the work of Chris Godsil
It is surprising that the characteristic polynomial of 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 Quantum Cryptography School for Young Students (QCSYS) is a unique, week-long enrichment program for students. The school offers an interesting blend of lectures, hands-on experiments and group work focused on quantum cryptography.
