Chapman University is honored to host the 7th International Workshop on Quantum Simulation and Quantum Walks 2018, in Orange, California from March 3rd through 4th, 2018. Immediately preceding this workshop is another Chapman hosted event, the AAV Conference - Celebrating 30 Years of Weak Values from March 1st - 2nd.
Also, note that the March Meeting of the American Physical Society takes place the following week (March 5 - 9) in Los Angeles, CA, which is near Chapman University campus, providing a third reason to come visit us in sunny Southern California.
Quantum walks, which are quantum-mechanical analogues of random walks, are promising models to understand quantum dynamics. These models have sparked various theoretical and experimental investigations covering areas in mathematics, physics, quantum information, and statistical mechanics. This workshop aims to bring interdisciplinary researchers from all areas of quantum walks, both theoretical and experimental, together to discuss recent work and find future directions of research.
Dr. Yakir Aharonov, as well as a number of invited speakers, is scheduled to present, and we are also accepting abstract submissions for contributing talks and poster presentations. We strongly encourage students and young researchers to join us at this workshop.
