Quantum Summer School for students– applications due **Today**

Fri., May. 07, 2021, 12:00am-12:00am (EDT/GMT-0400)

The Quantum Science Center will hold a quantum summer school, which will be hosted virtually by QSC partner Purdue University, from May 17 to 21. This event is open to all graduate students and postdoctoral associates, including those not associated with the QSC. Information about the virtual platform will be announced at a later date. Anyone interested in participating should fill out the registration form by Friday, May 7. There will also be a poster session and a ‘Shark Tank’ competition for QSC-affiliated students and postdocs, with details to be announced soon. This school will focus on the QSC’s three scientific thrusts. The first focus area, Quantum Materials Discovery and Development, involves understanding and developing quantum concepts such as topological electronic materials, quantum spin systems, and quantum probes. The second focus area, Quantum Algorithms and Simulation, includes designing and testing sophisticated algorithms and software tools for predictive dynamical quantum simulation and quantum sensing applications. And the third focus area, Quantum Devices and Sensors for Discovery Science, brings researchers together to answer quantum questions with new high-performance quantum devices and sensors. Young professionals in the quantum science community who take part in the event will have the opportunity to receive training in these areas from experts affiliated with national laboratories, universities, and companies around the world. Confirmed speakers include: Vladimir Shalaev, Purdue University Mikhail Lukin, Harvard University Daniel Bowring, Fermilab Rolando Somma, Los Alamos National Laboratory Susanne Yelin, Harvard University/University of Connecticut Chris Monroe, Duke University/IonQ Mark Tsang, Microsoft Mariia Mykhailova, Microsoft Dana Anderson, ColdQuanta This announcement will be updated as more details become available.
