QuSoft, the PCQC and the University of Latvia started a collaboration to develop quantum software.
On April 28th, QuSoft (the Dutch research centre for quantum software), the Paris Centre for Quantum Computing (PCQC) and the University of Latvia signed a memorandum of understanding to jointly push the frontiers of quantum information theory and develop quantum software for the future quantum computer.
Registration for the 14th Central European Quantum Information Processing Workshop is now open.
CEQIP is traditionally focused on current challenges and paradigms of mathematical and computational aspects of emerging quantum technologies. This year's edition will take place on May 31st - June 3rd, 2017, at the Smolenice castle, Slovakia.

The school "Nanotechnology meets Quantum Information (NanoQI)" provides a broad overview of different implementations of quantum information processing and quantum technologies. The school is aimed at PhD students and young postdocs interested in quantum information processing and quantum technologies.
QuantERA launched its first joint transnational call (Call 2017) for proposals worth € 34 M in support of transnational research in the field of Quantum Information and Communication Sciences and Technologies (Q-ICST).
Thirty research funding organisations from 26 countries throughout take part in the Call that has a deadline for pre-proposals on the 15th of March 2015.
The Call covers six main topics in the Q-ICST field:
The central european workshop on quantum optics will take place 26-30 June at the Department of Physics, Technical University of Denmark, in the beautiful surroundings of Lyngby (near Copenhagen). Information about the event can be found here www.cewqo2017.dk .The conference is preceded by a PhD summer school in optical quantum technology.
In January 2017 the QuantERA Consortium will announce a Call for Proposals in the field of quantum technologies.
QuantERA is a network of 31 agencies from 26 countries, coordinated by the National Science Centre, Poland. With a budget of over EUR 34 M, including co-funding from the European Commission, QuantERA will support international research projects in the field of Quantum Technologies.
The Optoelectronics and Photonics Winter Schools are biannual meetings which address relevant arguments of Optoelectronics and Photonics. The School has the tradition to bring together a large number of PhD students and young researchers from all parts of the world who, in a one-week of an intense program, follow a series of lectures on selected topics. The lectures are held by internationally recognized experts in the field. At the same time, the students are encouraged to enjoy the beautiful location where the school is organized.
