March Meeting Quantum Computing Schedule

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)

  • Monday, March 15 8:00am-11:00am Session A8: Quantum Opto-Mechanics
    Room: Portland Ballroom 255
    (Jointly sponsored with DAMOP)
    Invited speakers: Jack Harris, Klemens Hammerer, Philipp Treutlein, Nathaniel Brahms, Keith Schwab
  • Monday, March 15 11:15am-2:15pm Session B6: Controlling Dissipation in Quantum Systems
    Room: Portland Ballroom 253
    (Jointly sponsored with DAMOP)
    Invited Speakers: Frank Verstraete, Hans Peter Buechler, Matthias Lettner, Luis A. Orozco, Sergio Boixo
  • Monday, March 15 2:30pm-5:30pm Session D4: Quantum Computer Science
    Room: Oregon Ballroom 204 Invited Speakers: Graeme Smith, Aram Harrow, Ben Reichardt, Sandy Irani, Stephanie Wehner
  • Thursday, March 18 11:15am-1:40pm Session W6: Superconducting Qubits
    Room: Portland Ballroom 253

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.
