Northern Quantum Meeting III
The Northern Quantum Meeting is a biannual meeting for researchers from the North of UK who work on quantum physics and related topics. This summer, the meeting will be held at Durham University on Tuesday 12th June and will feature a program of talks, presented predominantly by PhD students and postdocs. The aim of the event is to encourage discussion between participants and foster future research collaborations. Lunch will be provided courtesy of our sponsor, the IOP Quantum Optics, Quantum Information and Quantum Control Group. At the end of the day there will also be an informal social trip to a local Durham pub.
If you would like to attend the, please fill out the Doodle poll by Friday 1st June. If you would like to bring a poster please let us know in the Doodle poll.
Volunteer a talk:
If you would like to volunteer a talk please send a title and abstract to Joschka Roffe by Friday 1st June.
Getting to Durham University
The event will be hosted on the ground floor of the Ogden Centre West at the Durham University Science Site. The best way of getting to Durham is via train. The science site can be reached via a short (albeit pretty hilly) walk through the centre of town. Follow the link for directions. For those of you arriving with less time to spare, there is a taxi rank at the train station and the fare to science site will be approximatley £7.
