Summer School on Quantum Information, Computing and Control

Important info
Dates: 
31 Aug 2015 - 4 Sep 2015
Location: 
Warwick University, UK
Deadlines
Registration deadline: 
29 May 2015

The 2015 International Summer School on Quantum Information Computing & Control (QuICC) will be held between the 31st August and 4th September at Warwick University. This event is organised by students from the doctoral training centres at Imperial College London. It aims to bring together experimental and theoretical physicists studying quantum phenomena in a variety of systems. Over the course of five days, the invited speakers will give three lectures each on their chosen topics.

This event is funded by the EPSRC and is free for all UK participants (excluding travel).

The Time Machine Factory Conference 2015

Important info
Dates: 
25 Oct 2015 - 28 Oct 2015
Location: 
Palazzo del Rettorato, University of Turin, Turin, Italy
Deadlines
Registration deadline: 
17 Sep 2015
Submission deadline: 
30 Jun 2015

The Conference focuses on causality and non-locality in physics, and the insurgence of situations where it appears that causality can be violated, with emphasis on their relation with time machines.

Theoretical research on quantum optics/cold atoms

Basic information
Application deadline: 
5 May 2015

Subject description
In recent years, atomic gases cooled down to extremely low temperatures have emerged as a playground to explore quantum many-body physics in a highly controlled manner. This has led, on the one hand, to the possibility of systematically exploring known models of condensed matter in the lab, and on the other, that new models, with no counterparts in other fields, can be engineered. As an example of the second, cold atomic gases can be held inside optical cavities and coherently interact with the electromagnetic field confined by the resonator.

Quantum Information Processing with severely Limited memory and communication

Basic information
Application deadline: 
1 Aug 2015

1 postdoc and 3 PhD student positions are available in this project. We offer good salaries and possibility to work on a wide range of topics. To apply send your CV and a short description of scientific interests to dokmpa@univ.gda.pl Any inquires should be directed to the same address.

Project scope:

Study of quantum information processing in the case when communication and memory are limited to just a few qubits.

Postdoctoral Research Fellow (Computational Quantum Physics)

Basic information
Application deadline: 
24 Apr 2015

The position involves analytical and computational modelling of laser excitation of semiconductor quantum dots and other systems, devising schemes for the erasure of information stored in those systems, and extending the thermodynamical framework to incorporate the erasure schemes. The ideal candidate will have a strong track record in computational quantum physics preferably with a background in semiconductor quantum dot systems (or similar area of condensed matter physics).
