This is the sixth year that the QuICC summer school has run

Last year's summer school

This summer school will run from Monday the 21st to Friday the 25th of August 2017, at the University of Bath, and will focus on research into quantum systems and their applications. During the course of the summer school there will be lectures from 5 specialist speakers and a poster session to give participants the opportunity to present and discuss their own research.

This summer school will be a great opportunity for all participants to expand their knowledge of the fascinating variety of cutting edge research into Quantum Information, Computing and Control, and meet and share ideas with other researchers in their field. We are also very excited to be able to host the summer school in the amazing city of Bath, and plan to organise some social activities to give everyone the chance to enjoy the city and surroundings!

This summer school is particularly aimed at Master's level and PhD students, because of the opportunity to present and discuss their research, but undergraduates considering going into this field are also welcome to apply. The QuICC summer school is free for UK participants, including accommodation in Bath, all meals during your visit and social activities. International students are welcome to apply but will have to cover their own expenses. This summer school is funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council and organised by students from the Controlled Quantum Dynamics Centre for Doctoral Training at Imperial College London.


This year the summer school will be hosted at the University of Bath.

The famous Roman Baths, of Bath ["Diego Delso, delso.photo, License CC-BY-SA"]

Bath University was established in 1966 and teaches a wide range of subjects, it is particularly well known for its sporting success. Bath was ranked as the UK’s top university in the Times Higher Education (THE) Student Experience Survey 2015. http://www.bath.ac.uk/

Bath is a vibrant and historic city in the South West of England. "A city so beautiful and special that it has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage site" (from: https://visitbath.co.uk/). Highlights of the city include the 2,000 year old Roman Baths, great city centre, famous Abbey, "Bath stone" architecture and literary history (Jane Austen is probably the most well known part of this!).
