2007 Workshop

LANL Quantum Workshop

The LANL Quantum Institute sponsored a Laboratory-wide workshop on Quantum Information, Science, and Technology. Here are the details and more information:

The workshop's purpose is to update those interested in quantum research at the Laboratory on recent accomplishments, discuss future directions, and initiate new collaborations. We hope that all research relevant to quantum entanglement and quantum coherence conducted in and around the Lab will be represented.

The day-long program will consist of nine talks, along with a poster session which will run over an extended lunch break to provide ample time for discussion. Poster presenters will be able to present a two-minute "advertisement" for their poster in an oral session immediately before the posters. Talks will be a combination of invited presentations and topics drawn from the poster submissions.

Please register your intention to attend with an email to quantumworkshop07@lanl.gov by November 30. There is no registration fee.
