The goal of the Workshop on Quantum Simulations 2013 is to gather the leading and interested scientists in theory and experiments on quantum simulations with an open interdisciplinary scope. Quantum simulations consist in the intentional and artificial reproduction of a quantum dynamics, difficult to access and study, onto an unnatural quantum system that is more controllable theoretically and experimentally.

This is our "Nobel Prize" lecture. Dietrich is a long time colleague of David Wineland at NIST and will tell us about the latest research from the Ion Storage Group.

To join the hangout or watch the livestream go to http://gplus.to/qplus at the appointed hour. Please note the unusual start time of 5pm BST(UTC+1)

Date: 23rd April 2013 5pm BST(UTC+1)

Title: Towards scalable quantum information processing and quantum simulation with trapped ions

Postdoctoral position in Quantum Information in Madrid
This is a call for applications for a postdoc position of 2 years (with the possibility of extending it another 6 months) in the group led by Prof. David Perez-Garcia at Universidad Complutense de Madrid.
Candidates should have a PhD in Mathematics, Physics or Computer Science and an excellent research track. Though recommended, no prior knowledge of Quantum Information is required for the position. The main research aims associated to this position can be summarized in

Three two-year postdoctoral research associate positions are available immediately in the group of Barry Sanders, who is the iCORE Chair of Quantum Information Science and Director of the University of Calgary's Institute for Quantum Information Science (IQIS). Research foci are machine learning for quantum measurement, multi-partite quantum communication protocols, quantum simulation, electron transport in protein complexes, and theoretical support for the the experimental research groups of Drs Barclay, Lvovsky, and Tittel in IQIS.

Quitemad is a consortium of five groups working in different aspects of QIPC in the region of Madrid. This project is a four year coordinated action funded by the regional goverment. Apart from research in technological and theoretical aspects of of quantum information theory, the consortium is strongly devoted to the development of a four year program of activities, such as workshops, conferences, seminars and scientific exchange between local and international groups.
