Following from the success of ONNA2013, the ONNA2015 workshop will be held at OIST Graduate University (http://www.oist.jp) from 25-28 May 2015. The aim of the workshop is to bring together experts and early stage researchers from diverse communities who use optical micro and nanofibers for their research needs, whether it be for quantum, biological or other applications. The number of participants is strictly limited and will be based on application.

Applications from Indian nationals are invited for the following position (initially for 1 year) under the project “Topology, quantum computation and spintronics with Dirac materials” in the School of Physical Sciences, NISER, Bhubaneswar, India funded by Dept. of Science and Technology, DST-Nanomisssion, Govt. of India.

The quantum control group at Aberystwyth University have developed a Python module for quantum optimal control. The module has been incorporated into QuTiP (Quantum Toolbox in Python) and is now part of the official release 3.1.0, which was announced on 1 Jan 2015. The module provides a method for determining control pulses for quantum systems via GRAPE, that is easy to configure, and runs on a free-to-use, open, and scalable platform.

Applications are invited for postdoctoral positions in the group of Andris Ambainis at the Faculty of Computing, University of Latvia. Our research group is interested in the following research topics:
- quantum algorithms and complexity theory;
- quantum communication, quantum information theory and cryptography;
- connections between quantum computing and classical computer science (using ideas from quantum information to solve classical problems);
- using ideas from quantum information to study physical systems.
