We would like to draw your attention to the workshop '''Quantum Science and Technologies'''. The European Quantum Information community has a tradition of biannual conferences (the last one was in September 2009 in Rome) covering the whole field, alternated with workshops on more specific themes, and this will be the 2010-2011 workshop in this series.

Jon Cartwright at PhysicsWorld writes: ''Two independent groups have demonstrated how a pair of entangled photons can transfer their entanglement to and from a solid – the process that should one day form the backbone of so-called quantum memories or repeaters. These devices would enable quantum communication systems to transmit information over larger distances, with significantly reduced degradation.''
The quest for a complete set of physical or information-theoretic principles that capture the essence of quantum information processing is attracting an increasing number of researchers. This new research trend aims at deriving quantum protocols and connections between them directly from basic principles, without assuming quantum theory and its mathematical dowry of Hilbert spaces and observable algebras.

A three-year PhD scholarship within the field of quantum sensing is available at the Department of Physics at the Technical University of Denmark. The topic of the project is the theoretical and experimental investigation of a micro-cavity on a chip for the generation of quantum light to be used for sensing. The project is a part of an international collaboration with the Max-Planck institute for the science of light in Germany and Queensland University in Australia.

Often we hear from young researchers that they have violated a Bell inequality with their new source by this and this factor. In such cases we usually forget about three basic underlying assumptions. Two of them are well known; Realism stating that outcomes of measurements exist before they are revealed in a measuring act and Locality forbidding superluminal communication between spatially separated laboratories. The third important assumption is Freedom exercised by the observers to choose their local measurements independently of each other.
The Electronics Materials Branch at the Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) in Washington, DC, seeks candidates for post doctoral positions in the theory of solid implementations for quantum information. Areas of current interest include quantum dots and coupled quantum dots, photons and microcavities, NV centers in diamond, quantum gates and decoherence.
