Fairmont Le Chateau Montebello, Quebec
Co-organized by the National Research Council of Canada
The meeting brings together the Canadian community of scientists and engineers who perform research and development on spin-based quantum technologies. This will be the third annual workshop, with the main goal to foster spin qubit research and attract and train highly qualified personnel for the emerging quantum technologies sector in Canada. It is recognised that spin qubits are among the leading candidates for quantum technologies, ranging from quantum sensors to full-fledged scalable quantum computers. Canada has made major investments in this domain in recent years, assembling a critical mass of researchers by funding large projects (notably through three CFREF programs, CFI, institutional funds and the Quebec strategic group INTRIQ). Building on the great success of the past meetings, this 3rd Spin Canada Workshop aims to continue building strong collaborations between Canadian researchers and with industry -- identifying common projects/goals and developing shared strategies to accelerate quantum R&D and ensure Canada’s leading role in the realization of these technologies.
Canada-based spin qubit researchers (both scientists and engineers) and representatives of related industries will be invited to participate. Each principal investigator will be invited to bring at least one student or postdoc to the event. The participation of students and postdocs is essential to creating a network of emerging Canadian spin qubit researchers, and provides an important resource for developing collaborative training tools across groups and institutions.
Attendance is by invitation only. Invitees please complete the online form to register for Spin Canada 2019.
Update (May 7, 2019): formal registration is now closed. Please email baugh[at]uwaterloo.ca if you would like to request late registration.
Schedule is now available for June 23 – 25, 2019
Spin Canada 2018 was held July 19-20 at Hotel Arts, Calgary, Alberta.
