First Workshop for Quantum Repeaters and Networks

The organizing committee is pleased to invite you to the first Workshop for Quantum Repeaters and Networks, to be held at the historic Asilomar Conference Grounds in beautiful Pacific Grove, CA, May 15-17, 2015. The goal of this workshop is to bring the active research community together to discuss the progress, challenges and new possible directions for quantum repeaters and networks.


QIPC 2015: Quantum Information Processing and Communication

The next International Conference on Quantum Information Processing and Communication (QIPC 2015) will take place at the University of Leeds from Sunday 13 September to Friday 18 September 2015. Like previous QIPC conferences (e.g. Florence 2013 and Zurich 2011), we aim to bring together researchers from all aspects of Quantum Information Science.


All about spin: from magnets to magnetic resonance imaging to spintronics

As part of Swansea University's annual National Science Week event, held on March 14, 2015, at the Waterfront Museum, we set up a table/display on the theme "All about spin: from magnets to magnetic resonance imaging to spintronics" where visitors could learn about magnetism, explore magnetic resonance via its analogy with accoustic resonance using a tone generator and guitar, and learn about magnetic resonance imaging.

Fifth QUAINT Workshop in Swansea, July 2015

The fifth QUAINT workshop will bring together experts, early stage researchers, and industry, fostering discussions and exchanges on quantum control. There will be tutorials, invited and contributed talks, a poster session and an industry session. It will cover broad topics in Quantum control and technology, Medical imaging and healthcare applications of quantum technologies, Quantum devices and spintronics.

The workshop will take place from the 1st to 3rd (Wed-Fri) July 2015 with tutorials on Tuesday, 30th of June 2015 at the Swansea Marriott Hotel, Marina, Maritime Quarter  Swansea  Wales  SA1 3SS  United Kingdom. A tentative schedule is available here.

RIVIC: Exploring Big Data Using Visual Computing, 14th Jan 2014 Cardiff

The Technology Strategy Board (TSB) is to invest up to £4.5m in collaborative research and development thatt addresses the technical challenges and business opportunities presented by the huge growth in data. This competition focuses on innovations in the data exploration techniques of analytics, modelling and visualisation to generate new insight and value from large amounts of complex data.


Nottingham Quantum Cybernetics and Control workshop

The registration for the Nottingham Quantum Cybernetics and Control workshop is open.
Please see .
Please register as soon as possible, in particular please book your accommodation as soon as possible so you get the discounted rates for the hotel. We are unable to reserve rooms, so rooms are allocated on a first comes - first served base.


Fourth QUAINT Workshop

The fourth QUAINT workshop will cover a broad range of topics in quantum control, from fundamental questions to technological applications. It will consist of a first part focused on information-theoretic aspects of quantum control and complexity, and a second part focused on experimental challenges and nuclear magnetic resonance applications. The workshop will gather experts and early stage researchers, fostering discussions and exchanges. There will be tutorial lectures, invited talks, contributed talks, a poster session, and an industry session.


SoapboxScience 2014 Swansea

On the 5th of July 2014, Soapbox Science will join efforts with Swansea University to transform the magnificent expanse of Swansea Bay into a hub of scientific learning and discussion, as some of Wales’ leading female scientists take to their soapboxes to showcase science to the general public. The event’s mission remains the same: to help eliminate gender inequality in science by raising the profile, and challenging the public’s view, of women and science.
