Canadian Summer School on Quantum Information
This summer school is the 12th edition of an annual Canadian event
that brings together students from around the world to learn about
quantum information processing. Previous editions of the school
have been held in Calgary, Montreal, Sherbrooke, Toronto, and Waterloo.
This year's school follows the tradition of educating young researchers
in this rapidly-evolving field by gathering some of the world top
experts to offer lectures on various aspects of quantum information.
The school is designed for graduate students and postdocs in computer
science, mathematics, and physics who are interested in learning
about quantum information processing. It also provides an opportunity
for students specializing in one sub-area to broaden their knowledge
of the field as a whole.

Student Conference on Quantum Information
The annual Canadian Student Conference on Quantum Information, now
in its 9th year, has been a huge success in the past, bringing together
graduate students from across Canada and around the world. This
year it will be combined with the 2nd annual AQuA Graduate Student
Congress on Quantum Information and Computation, a similar spirited
event with the goal of bringing together graduate students from
member institutions of the Alliance for Quantum Academia. Member
institutes include Centre for Quantum Technologies (National University
of Singapore), Institute for Quantum Computing (University of Waterloo),
Imperial College London, and Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
This will be the rst year that the two events will be combined,
and the combination is anticipated to be beneficial in bringing
together a wider variety of students from various institutes across
the globe. With the combination of these two events, we expect a
high number of participants, approximately 110 based on previous
years, and hope to provide generous
student travel support for participants.
The student conference will consist mainly of student contributed
talks, giving as many participants as possible a chance to showcase
their own work to their peers, as well as providing them with an
introduction to work being done by others. In addition, we hope
to organize an industry afternoon,
with invited speakers from various areas of industry, to expose
participants to future opportunities outside the academic sphere.
