SMS2010 Advanced Summer School

2010-06-21 - 2010-07-02

Advanced school in quantum information processing and quantum cryptography

Montreal will host the NATO, CRM and INTRIQ sponsored “Advanced school in quantum information processing and quantum cryptography” from June 21st to July 2nd. This is a two week summer school aimed at people already in the field of quantum computation, information or cryptography. The goal is for the attendee to expand their knowledge of the field by attending a series of seminars on different topics given by world renowned experts.

Special funding to pay all expenses of students is available.
