Quantum Summer School coming to ORNL in July

It is organized by the Quantum Science Center headquartered at ORNL and the Quantum Systems Accelerator, led by Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory.

Everywhere you turn, it seems you hear the term quantum computing, and Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) has been selected to host the second “U.S. Quantum Information Science (QIS) Summer School.”

Organized by the Quantum Science Center, headquartered at ORNL, and the Quantum Systems Accelerator, led by Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, this joint 12-day event is the culmination of combined efforts by the five DOE National QIS Research Centers. It targets junior and senior undergraduate students, graduate students, postdoctoral and early career researchers from across the nation for the immersive, in-person educational program.

Registration is open until March 15. Both members and nonmembers of the NQISRCs will be considered, and the two-part application process will require candidates to submit an updated curriculum vitae, a transcript and two reference letters. Applicants will be notified of their status by April 14. The program runs July 15-26.

More information and a link to the application can be found here.
