Isaac Chuang sends out an email concerning QIP 2005:
This is a preliminary announcement for QIP 2005, the Eighth Workshop on Quantum Information Processing, to be held at MIT in Cambridge, Massachusetts (USA), from Thursday January 13th until mid-day Monday January 17th, 2005.
The QIP series has become the premiere conference on computer-science aspects of quantum information. This year, it will be hosted by the MIT Department of Physics (web.mit.edu/physics) and the MIT Center for Bits and Atoms (cba.mit.edu).
The conference will consist of a full schedule of invited talks on recent results in quantum information processing, plus an open session with short talks, one or more poster sessions, a banquet, and additional social activities. This year there will be a nominal conference fee.
Please mark the dates in your calendar. We hope you’ll be able to attend. Please feel free to forward this message to anyone you think would be interested. Instructions for being added or removed from this mailing list are provided below.
There will be a 2nd announcement inviting people to register for the workshop and submit proposals for posters and short talks. Limited travel support will also be available.
More information is available at http://web.mit.edu/qip2005 This will be updated further in the upcoming weeks and months.
I have never been to a QIP which has not been accompanied by some nice extreme winter weather. Last year was Waterloo, Ontario, where we froze our rear ends off. Before that it was in Berkeley, California. Which should have been nice and calm, except that there was a huge rain and wind storm during the conference. Prior to that it was held in upstate New York and prior to that Amsterdam and prior to that Monteral and prior to that Chicago. All in winter. BRRRRRR!
I hope M.I.T. (that other Tech school) can provide suitable freezing temperatures. And maybe some good talks as well?
