Quantum computers symposium set, Sept. 26
Posted September 20, 2007; 09:58 a.m.
Princeton will host a symposium on "Frontiers in Quantum Computation" from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 26, in A10 Jadwin Hall.
The workshop will feature talks by experts from both academia and industry who are developing a radically new form of computer technology. Quantum computers, if they can be realized, might solve certain problems much faster than conventional computers. The symposium is part of a yearlong program focusing on the design challenges that remain.
Sponsors are the Princeton Center for Theoretical Physics and the MITRE Corp. There is no charge to attend, but registration is required at www.pctp.princeton.edu/pctp/.
The Princeton Center for Theoretical Physics, established in fall 2006, is dedicated to exploring frontiers across the theoretical natural sciences. Its purpose is to promote interaction among theorists and seed new directions in research, especially in areas that cross traditional disciplinary boundaries.
