The Quantum Pontiff

The APS March meeting is next week as 10000 physicists invade Portland, Oregon. I hope Powell’s bookstore has stocked their science sections well! GQI, the topical group on quantum information, sponsors a good number of sessions at the meeting including sessions with invited talks, focus sessions, and general sessions. Below the fold I’m assembling a list of quantum computing sessions, but before the fold I’d like to point out the invited sessions, which have longer speaking slots where one can actually learn more than the speakers name and research project title, that are sponsored or cosponsored by GQI (also below note the Focus sessions listed below have invited speakers)

    GQI needs to sponsor more stuff within driving distance of NY. Here’s to the Baltimore meetings in 2013 and 2016 :/ By that point maybe I’ll even have something QIT related to present.
