Overview

What is the QuICC summer school all about?

The QuICC summer school is aimed at final year Master's and first year PhD students in Physics. The focus of the summer school is to provide insight into various aspects of Quantum Information, Computing, and Control with the hope that students will come away from the 5-day residential course with a better understanding of the theory behind, and applications of, these topics. If you are thinking of undertaking postgraduate study (or have recently begun your course) in one of these fascinating and cutting-edge areas of science, our summer school is the perfect way to solidify the foundations of your knowledge, hear about the frontiers of research and innovation directly from academics, and meet other students who share the same passion.

The core of the summer school is a series of lectures from 6 leading academics. Each will introduce their area of research, provide an introductory framework for understanding the field, and discuss the landscape of current knowledge and where the future might lead. We also provide the opportunity for students to present their own research during a poster session mid-way through the course. Any attendee is welcome to present their work, and the summer school organisational team will also be showing posters about their research projects. It's not all work though! After the poster session, attendees get an afternoon off during which they have the choice of either joining the group excursion (arranged by the organisational team) or making their own way out to explore the city.

Accomodation and all meals are provided free of charge for all UK participants, although we regrettably can not cover travel expenses. International students are welcome to apply but will have to cover their own expenses.

The QuICC summer school is organised by students in their MRes year at the Centre for Doctoral Training in Controlled Quantum Dynamics, Imperial College London, and is funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC).

We are very excited to be hosting our 2019 summer school at the University of Leeds. For more information, visit the University of Leeds website.

Accomodation for Home (UK) students will be provided at the University of Leeds halls. Depending on availability, we may be able to book accomodation with the main group for International students, although expenses will be charged to the student as we are unfortunately not able to cover costs for International attendees. International students who are interested in attending the summer school are advised to contact the organisers to discuss potential options for accomodation.
