4th annual Canadian Summer School for Quantum Information

Saturday, June 19, 2004 12:00 am - Friday, June 25, 2004 12:00 am EDT (GMT -04:00)

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. 

The goal of this summer school is to provide introductory lectures on quantum information science to a general audience of graduate-level computer scientists, physicists and mathematicians. 

The school consists of five consecutive days of talks that cover the basics of quantum information processing as well as more advanced topics, including quantum information theory, quantum algorithms and lower bounds, Implementations and models and quantum communication, nonlocality and interactions.
