This summer school is the 11th edition of a highly successful series of school, with previous editions held in Calgary, Montreal, Toronto, Vancouver, and Waterloo. It follows the tradition of educating young researchers (prospective and current graduate students, as well as postdocs) on the rapidly-evolving field of quantum information science and brings together the world's experts from different areas.

The Summer School will begin Monday June 6 and run until Wednesday June 15, with a two-day break during the weekend. The 8th Canadian Student Conference on Quantum Information will take place during the two days (June 16-17) immediately following the Summer School.

These events will take place at the lovely Centre de Villégiature de Jouvence, located inside a National Park. This is an ideal location for all sort of outdoor activities including canoeing, hiking, and cycling. The summer school package includes housing and all meals that will be provided by the Centre de Villégiature.

In addition, participation at the Summer School is an official academic activity for which students will receive 3 graduate-level credits from the Université de Sherbrooke. Participants of the student conference will receive 1 graduate level credit. These credits can be accounted for the student's graduate program, depending on regulations of their host institution.
