(IBM-QuantumComputingSummerSchool) IBM’s 2022 Quantum Error Correction (QEC) Summer School will be a month long in-person event July 5, 2022 to July 30, 2022. The school will bring together the next generation of QEC researchers to participate in a series of mini-courses on both foundational topics and the latest theoretical and experimental results, and offer opportunities to collaborate with others in the QEC community. The aim of the QEC Summer School is to give participants a working knowledge of QEC, as well as some of the latest results in selected areas. This will empower students to contribute to cutting-edge research that will benefit the quantum computing industry and the world.
The program includes invited talks from various leading QEC researchers. Participants will have the opportunity to discuss and present their own work. Most potential students will be pursuing a graduate degree in a mathematical science (mathematics, physics, engineering, computer science).
Individuals interested in experimental and/or theoretical aspects of QEC are encouraged to apply.
The Quantum Error Correction Summer school has a maximum capacity of 70 participants. All candidates who meet the criteria may apply. IBM especially encourages applications from individuals currently underrepresented in quantum computing. Applications will be accepted after March 3 but will only be considered if space is available.
Application is here.
All local expenses for successful applicants will be covered thanks to IBM’s full sponsorship of this summer school. We’re working to minimize any barriers for qualified applicants hoping to attend this event, especially individuals from groups that have been underrepresented in the sciences. Further funds or accommodations may also be available for a select number of participants in need of travel assistance or with circumstances preventing them from traveling to New York.
