Workshop Details
Molecules and Mechanisms for Quantum Information Processing
09/23/2019 - 09/27/2019
Meeting Description:

"The future is quantum" reads IBM's front page for their quantum computation website ( Indeed, on May 9th, 2018, IBM named the first University- based "Q hub" at NC State University (, and more recently the National Science Foundation announced extensive funding for "Quantum Leap" ( By using the unique quantum mechanical properties of spin, entanglement, and superposition, quantum computing and information processing offers exponential enhancements in a variety of computing technologies. Rather than storing information as conventional "0" and "1" binary bits, quantum computers store information as "qubits" on a continuous valued Bloch sphere, which can represent more than two states simultaneously, i.e. superposition. Superposition and entanglement allow for parallel computing and the solution of problems far too intractable using conventional computation approaches.


We wish to ensure an intimate workshop setting, with no more than 20 to 25 participants. If you are interested in attending, but have not received an invitation, please contact the workshop organizer before registering. If you have registered for a meeting you were not invited to, you may be subject to a $100 fee.

TSRC is about expanding the frontiers of science, exploring new ideas, and building collaborations. The workshop schedule will allow for substantial unstructured time for participants to talk and think. All participants are expected to stay for the entire duration of the workshop. Scientists are encouraged to consider bringing family or friends. Telluride offers a number of options for children's camps (including Telluride Academy, Aha School for the Arts, and Pinhead Institute). There is more information on childcare, camps, and family activities on TSRC's website. Feel free to contact TSRC's staff to help with any planning and/or coordinating care.
