Quantum Immersion Workshop

Quantum Immersion Workshop

Monday, February 25, 2019

8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Charles B. Wang Center, 100 Nicolls Road, Stony Brook, NY 11794

Parking will be available in the Administration Garage. 

 

The goal of this Quantum Immersion Workshop is to

build a Quantum Information Science (QIS) community of researchers at

Stony Brook University and Brookhaven National Laboratory.  

This workshop will showcase State of the Art Research in QIS and

provide a forum to discuss opportunities to engage in QIS research.  

 

Researchers in Physics, Computer Science, Engineering, Materials Science and

related fields with an interest in Quantum Information Science are invited to attend.
