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 was “quantum computation,” which covered 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 took place at Princeton University from Monday, Aug. 7 - Thursday,  Aug. 10, 2017. Please check back for forthcoming details regarding the 2018 program.
