Following from the success of ONNA2013 & 2015, the ONNA2017 workshop will be held at OIST Graduate University (http://www.oist.jp) from 5-8 June 2017. The aim of the workshop is to bring together experts and early stage researchers from diverse communities who use optical micro and nanofibres for their research needs, whether it be for quantum, sensing, or other applications. The number of participants is strictly limited and will be based on application.

The Schmid College of Science and Technology at Chapman University is advertising teaching/research postdoctoral fellowships (see the advert below). The teaching portion is in our new Grand Challenges Initiative. The research component can be in any group within Schmid College, which includes the Institute for Quantum Studies. The institute is lef by Yakir Aharonov and Jeff Tollaksen, and includes faculty members Matt Leifer and Justin Dressel.

Quantum information theory is at the intersection of physics, computer science and mathematics. While its potential is still in the way of being developed, what we already know suggests that it may have a dramatic impact on everyday technologies. Given the completely new logic underlying a quantum computer, new mathematical and computer science tools are required to optimize its architecture and then fully exploit its computational potential.
