6th QSC General Assembly 2021

On November 5, 2021, Leiden will host the 6th QSC General Assembly, organized by Peter Bruin and Wolfgang Löffler. You may expect exciting presentations also from new QSC members (a.o. Gayane Vardoyan and Jonas Helsen), from fundamental mathematics to experimental quantum optics. Barbara Terhal will give a key note on  Quantum Error Correction and Fault-Tolerance.

Dear QSC-colleagues,

Some last-minute information for our QSC meeting: Our event will take place at Leiden University, room 4/5 on the first floor of the Gorlaeus lecture hall building (the circular building) on the Bioscience park, the entrance is at Einsteinweg 55 (https://plus.codes/9F465F85+RQ). Bike parking is to the right of the building. QSC signs will help you find your way.

The lecture hall is suitable for 700 students (we will be around 80 participants), and there will be ample space in front of it for lunch and coffee, so we can have a corona-safe meeting. Anyway, please look at the Leiden Corona rules: https://www.universiteitleiden.nl/en/dossiers/coronavirus-en/corona-check
From Leiden Centraal (google directions: https://bit.ly/3beW3Cu), you can take a bus, walk (25 min), or take a OV bike (8 min, exit the station to the LUMC side). Note that there is no public car parking close by. Please contact Wolfgang or Doutzen if you need help.
We are looking forward to seeing you at the General Assembly.

Doutzen Abma, Peter Bruin, Susanne van Dam and Wolfgang Löffler
