Quantum Manifesto for Endorsement

Thank you for your contributions to the Quantum Manifesto, an initiative started by European science, industry and policy communities in response to a call for a common European strategy by Commissioner Günther Oettinger and Minister Henk Kamp in October 2015. We have widely consulted the community in preparing this Manifesto and have tried to take on board all the comments we received in a balanced way.


Making Chemical Bonds

It has long been an aim of quantum optimal control to steer chemical reactions to create new molecules or improve the yield of existing reactions, etc. Early work by Brumer, Shapiro (1992) and Tannor, Kosloff, Rice (1986) suggested to use lasers, or photonic reagents, as molecular scissors. This has been gradually realised by closed loop control techniques, e.g.


Michael J. D. Powell Memorial

Michael James David Powell passed away on April 19th, 2015. He has been a pioneer in non-linear optmisation and numerical analysis, and much of his work has been devoted to quasi-Newton optimisation and the analysis of BFGS, which also forms an important basis for many quantum control algorithms. A memorial site for him has been set up here.


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.
