To: Martin Laforest <>

Dear Undergrads:
Delve into the cutting-edge laboratories at the University of Waterloo’s Institute for Quantum Computing during an innovative summer program that puts you at the forefront of science and technology.
The Undergraduate School on Experimental Quantum Information Processing (USEQIP) is a one-of-a-kind opportunity to work with the tools used to harness and exploit the quantum world. You’ll learn from leading experts in the field at the Institute for Quantum Computing — one of the world’s largest research facilities devoted to quantum information processing.
The lectures and more than 25 hours of experimental workshops offered at USEQIP are aimed at undergraduate students of engineering, physics, chemistry, computer science and mathematics, though all interested students are invited to apply. 
Twenty students will be accepted to the two-week program (from May 28 to June 8, 2012), with all travel, meals and housing costs funded by the Institute for Quantum Computing and its partners.
The program will include introductory lectures and hands-on workshops about topics including: spin, superconducting and optical qubits, quantum cryptography, quantum error correction, quantum algorithms, decoherence and much more. Internship positions at IQC are available (but not guaranteed) for interested students immediately following USEQIP.

The deadline for applications is March 5, 2012.
