and instructions) from May 19 to May 21, 2000. The Workshop will gather
together researchers from member institutions who work on theoretical, experimental,
and computational aspects of quantum information science. The Workshop is
sponsored by the Office of Naval Research,
Los Alamos National Laboratory, and the
University of New Mexico (College
of Arts and Sciences, Department of Physics and Astronomy, and Center for
Advanced Studies). |
The Workshop will begin with a continental breakfast on Friday, May 19, and end at 2:00 pm on Sunday, May 21. The program will include 25-minute invited talks, poster presentations, and time for informal discussion. The invited talks will be given by a few researchers from outside the Network and by representatives of research groups within the Network. Anyone associated with the Network can contribute a poster presentation, which will include a brief, oral introduction.
A block of rooms has been reserved for Workshop participants at the Hilton Hotel/Fairfield Inn, located at the intersection of University and Menaul Boulevards (map and instructions). The Hilton/Fairfield does not offer transportation from and to Albuquerque International Sunport.
To initiate Workshop registration and to reserve accommodations, complete and submit the registration form. Registration is completed (i) by submitting the Workshop fee by check, payable to the University of New Mexico ($50 for senior participants and postdocs and $20 for students), to the address below and (ii) for speakers and poster presenters, by submitting a one-page abstract (all formats accepted) to Joe Renes at firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline for completing registration has been extended to April 27. Researchers from outside the Network should contact Carlton Caves before registering.
Weather in Albuquerque in mid-May is likely to be sunny and warm during the day and cool at night. The mean high temperature for May 20 is 81 degrees F, and the mean low is 50 degrees F. The Conference Banquet will be held on Saturday evening at the High Finance Restaurant, which is located at the top of the Sandia Peak Tram. Evening temperatures at this 10,378-foot elevation are likely to be around 50 degrees F; a sweater or light jacket might be in order, but your survival will not be threatened if you have neither.
