Third Biannual SQuInT Student Summer School and Retreat
Sponsored by the National Science Foundation
The Southwest Quantum Information and Technology (SQuInT) Network announces the Third Biannual SQuInT Student Summer School and Retreat, to be held at the beautiful Asilomar State Park near Monterey, California from June 15-19, 2003, co-hosted by the University of California, Berkeley, University of California, San Diego, and the University of New Mexico, Albuquerque.
The Retreat is an educational activity, with pedagogical and overview lectures geared towards newcomers to the field. In addition, it is intended to provide an opportunity for new students in the field to become acquainted with their peers from other research groups and to establish grass roots connections between the increasing number of research groups active in this field -- hence the name: Summer School and Retreat.
This year's retreat will emphasize computer science and engineering.
Topics to be discussed include:
