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.
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.
