» 7th International Workshop on Quantum Simulation and Quantum Walks

Chapman University is honored to host the 7th International Workshop on Quantum Simulation and Quantum Walks 2018, in Orange, California from March 3 through 4, 2018. Immediately preceding this workshop is another Chapman hosted event, the AAV Conference - Celebrating 30 Years of Weak Values from March 1-2.

Also, note that the March Meeting of the American Physical Society takes place the following week (March 5 - 9) in Los Angeles, CA, which is near Chapman University campus, providing a third reason to come visit us in sunny Southern California.

Quantum walks, which are quantum-mechanical analogues of random walks, are promising models to understand quantum dynamics. These models have sparked various theoretical and experimental investigations covering areas in mathematics, physics, quantum information, and statistical mechanics. This workshop aims to bring interdisciplinary researchers from all areas of quantum walks, both theoretical and experimental, together to discuss recent work and find future directions of research.

Dr. Yakir Aharonov, as well as a number of invited speakers, is scheduled to present, and we are also accepting abstract submissions for contributing talks and poster presentations. We strongly encourage students and young researchers to join us at this workshop.

Local Information

+ - Hotel Accommodations and Transportation

We have arranged group-discounted hotel rooms at two locations: the ALO Hotel, and the Ayres Hotel. Both hotels are located less than two miles distance from Chapman University, and sit next to each other, side-by-side.

Reserve a room at the ALO Hotel

Reserve a room at the Ayres Hotel

Shuttles will be available to transport attendees from these hotels to Chapman campus every morning, and from Chapman campus back to the hotels every evening.

If you will be driving your own vehicle, please e-mail us at quantum@chapman.edu to receive a campus parking permit.
