The Gordon Research Seminar on Quantum Science is a unique forum for graduate students, post-docs, and other scientists with comparable levels of experience and education to present and exchange new data and cutting edge ideas.
This year's Seminar will focus on the most timely ideas from quantum science and address such topics as the design and control of synthetic quantum matter, the evolution and thermalization of out-of equilibrium systems and its relation to many-body localization, as well as the application of entanglement theory and quantum error correction to our understanding of condensed matter, high-energy physics and quantum gravity.
This GRS was held in conjunction with the "Quantum Science" Gordon Research Conference (GRC)
. Refer to the associated GRC program page
for more information.
