Quantum Rio Workshop, Dec. 7/8th

Next week, on December 7th and 8th, in CBPF (at the 6th floor auditorium), we’ll have our first Quantum Rio Workshop, an informal gathering of the quantum information community in and around Rio, organized by Malena Hor-Meyll (UFRJ), Roberto Sarthour (CBPF) and Ernesto Galvão (UFF).

The idea of the workshop is to foster more interaction and collaboration among the quantum information/quantum optics researchers in the area. We’ve allocated half-hour talk slots to some of the group leaders, complemented by posters and coffee during the talk breaks, mostly by students (please encourage them to contribute!). The workshop will be financed by workshop fees (paid only by professors).

Please find the schedule below:

Wednesday, Dec. 7th:
9:00-09:30 Luiz Davidovich
9:30-10:00 Fernando Melo
10:00-10:30 coffee
10:30-11:00 Gabriel Aguilar
11:00-11:30 Alexandre Souza
11:30-12:00 Ernesto Galvão
12:00-14:00 lunch
14:00-14:30 José Augusto Huguenin/Alexandre Schmidt
14:30-15:00 Mohammad Rajabpour
15:00-16:00 coffee/posters

15:00-15:30 Eric Cavalcanti
15:30-16:30 coffee+posters

Please get in touch if you’re planning on attending (emailing Malena, Ernesto or Roberto), so that we can leave a participant list at the reception of CBPF, which is necessary for security purposes.

The quantum information community in Rio is quite large, and there are already many collaborations going on among the different groups. We hope this will be the first of many workshops that’ll help us make the most out of our rich human resources in the region. See you there!
