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 fourth annual Canadian Summer School for Quantum Information (CSSQI) will be hosted by the Institute for Quantum Computing in the Davis Centre at the University of Waterloo.
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.
The Institute for Quantum Computing and the Fields Institute for Mathematical Research are holding the Mathematics in Experimental Quantum information Processing workshop. It aims to bring together mathematicians and experimental quantum information researchers to encourage academic collaborations.
For cross-fertilization between communities working on superconducting systems and electron spins
Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) members only golf tournament
In a scramble each player tees off on each hole. The best of the tee shots is selected and all players play their second shots from that spot. The best of the second shots is determined, then all play their third shots from that spot, and so on until the ball is holed. We will play in team of 4 and you need to use a shot from each player on your team.

Quantum superconducting circuits are nanostructured superconducting electrical networks with Josephson junctions. At low temperatures, their quantum dynamics is properly described by using a few degrees of freedom with a collective character. The parameters in the Hamiltonian depend on the dimensions and topology of the circuit; superconducting quantum circuits therefore behave as artificial atoms.
