30 July 2019
The workshop's objectives are: To bring together Alberta's quantum community including academic (universities and polytechnics), industrial and government researchers and technologists to engender mutual understanding of the diverse quantum research and development activities in Alberta. To connect academic researchers with national industrial quantum activities and needs. To develop a strategy for knowledge advancement, translation and innovation pertinent to quantum science and technology.
Quantum science and technology encompass a broad set of research topics, which often intersect. As these fields continue to advance, it is expected that their impact and overlap with each other will grow. Quantum Alberta has five research themes as below.
- Quantum foundations and quantum gravity
- Quantum chemistry and multiscale modelling
- Quantum materials
- Quantum nanoscience and technology
- Quantum optics and quantum information

Accommodation and Travel
Participants from Universities of Calgary and Lethbridge: Travel will be covered by individual research grant. Each group can request one night of accommodation with one room for a group supervisor at Campus Tower Suite Hotel and one double room for two members of the group at the traditional dormitory at the University of Alberta (special circumstances can be discussed). Further rooms can be requested but will not be paid or reimbursed by Quantum Alberta. Your credit card is required to secure the rooms when you book.
