Quantum computation 

The Princeton Center for Complex Materials (PCCM) and the Princeton Center for Theoretical Science (PCTS) are proud to present the annual Princeton Summer School on Condensed Matter Physics (PSSCMP). This summer school is unique in that the organization of all programming is conducted by graduate students and postdoctoral researchers, with only modest faculty oversight. 

The summer school is a condensed matter physics education program that focuses on theoretical and experimental research of quantum many-body systems. The theme for 2017 will be “quantum computation,” which will cover various topics that are of common interest to both the condensed matter community and the quantum information community.  Lectures are of pedagogical aim and the program is open to graduate students and postdoctoral researchers in the sciences

The PSSCMP 2017 program will take place at Princeton University from Monday, Aug. 7 - Thursday,  Aug. 10, 2017. Please check back for forthcoming details regarding the 2017 program. Registration for the 2017 PSSCMP is now open (follow link below).

Last year's 2016 theme was: "Many-Body Localization and Frustrated Magnetism," which covered topics such as theoretical and experimental probes of localization and frustration, theoretical concepts, numerical methods, and experimental realizations. You may find the program for the 2016 PSSCMP PDF iconhere, which took place at Princeton University from Aug. 8 - Aug. 11, 2016.
