The Undergraduate School on Experimental Quantum Information Processing (USEQIP) is a two-week program on the theory and experimental study of quantum information processors aimed primarily at students just completing their junior year. The program is designed to introduce students to the field of quantum information processing. The lectures are geared to students of engineering, physics, chemistry and math, though all interested students are invited to apply.
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.
