The 4th Workshop on Theory of Quantum Computation, Communication, and Cryptography
May 11-13, 2009

Quantum computation, quantum communication, and quantum cryptography are subfields of quantum information processing, an interdisciplinary field of information science and quantum mechanics. TQC 2009 focuses on theoretical aspects of these subfields. The objective of the workshop is to bring together researchers so that they can interact with each other and share problems and recent discoveries. The workshop will be held at the University of Waterloo. It will consist of invited talks, contributed talks, and a poster session.

The Undergraduate School on Experimental Quantum Information Processing
June 1 - June 12, 2009

The Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) will be running a summer school for undergraduate students this upcoming June. The Undergraduate School on Experimental Quantum Information Processing is a two-week program on the theory and experimental study of quantum information processors aimed primarily at students who have recently completed their junior year.

The program is designed to introduce students to the field of quantum information processing (QIP). The lectures are geared to students of engineering, physics, chemistry, and math, though all interested students are invited to apply. The program has space for 8 students and is fully funded through IQC.

The summer school is staffed by the faculty of IQC, a multidisciplinary research centre at the University of Waterloo and an internationally recognized leader in the development of quantum information processors. The program will consist of lectures introducing quantum information theory and experimental approaches to quantum devices, followed by hands-on exploration of QIP using the experimental facilities of the institute.

The Quantum Cryptography School for Young Students
July 27 - July 31, 2009

The Quantum Cryptography School for Young Students (QCSYS) is an exciting week-long program offered to Canadian students in Grades 10-12. This year's week-long program will run in the summer of 2009. The program is run by the Institute for Quantum Computing in conjunction with the University of Waterloo.

Students will be given a first-hand look into one of the most exciting topics in modern science–quantum cryptography. Not only will students have the opportunity to be exposed to cutting-edge topics like quantum physics and cryptography–they will have the opportunity to meet some of the most renowned researchers the field has to offer. In addition, students will get a tour of quantum computing and quantum cryptography experiments.

The QCSYS requires that applicants have taken (or are currently finishing) Grade 11 Mathematics (or higher). Grade 11 Physics, while not mandatory, is recommended. (Exception for Grade 10 students)
