We would like to announce that online application for the 1st Workshop for Quantum Repeaters and Networks is now open. The workshop will be held from May 15-17, 2015 in historic Asilomar Conference Grounds in Pacific Grove, California. It is a follow-up to the Quantum Repeater Symposium held as a part of CLEO/QELS 2014 in San Jose. The goal of this workshop is to bring the active research community together to discuss the progress, challenges and new possible directions for quantum repeaters and networks.
The application deadline is January 31. In order to establish a productive workshop with plenty of discussions, the number of attendees at the workshop will be limited to no more than 100. Applicants are thus asked to submit either a poster abstract or a brief statement of their background and motivation for attending. Participants will be notified by the end of February.
Online application is via the conference website:http://wqrn.pratt.duke.edu/
We are looking forward to a productive workshop and encourage you to apply!
