University of Waterloo opens applications for Undergraduate School on Experimental Quantum Information Processing 2013

University of Waterloo’s Institute for Quantum Computing, Canada, seeks to put in the forefront of science and technology to those attending undergraduate school Experimental Quantum Information Processing, USEQIP 2013.

Twenty students will be accepted to the two-week program (from May 27th to June 7th 2013), with all travel, meal and housing costs funded by the Institute for Quantum Computing and their partners.

The mixture of lectures and over 25 hours of experimental workshops offered at USEQIP are aimed at undergraduate students of engineering, physics, chemistry, computer science and math, though all interested students are invited to apply.

The Undergraduate School on Experimental Quantum Information Processing (USEQIP) is a one-of-a-kind opportunity to work with the tools to harness and exploit the quantum world. You’ll learn from leading experts in the field at the Institute for Quantum Computing — one of the world’s largest research facilities devoted to quantum information processing.

The program will include introductory lectures and hands-on workshops about such topics as: spin, superconducting and optical qubits, quantum cryptography, quantum error correction, quantum algorithms, decoherence and much more. Moreover, interested students can also apply for a summer research assistantship following the program.

The deadline for applications is March 4th, 2013. For more information and to access the application form, visit USEQIP 2013′ official site.
