Quantum Information Science for US Nuclear Physics Long Range Planning – 2022

Organizing Committee: Douglas Beck (UIUC), Joe Carlson (LANL), Zohreh Davoudi (UMD), Joe Formaggio (MIT), Sofia Quaglioni (LLNL), Martin Savage (UW)

This meeting will gather experts to consider the current state of quantum information science in nuclear physics research.  It is expected to provide information to be considered during the current nuclear physics long-range planning process.


This workshop is jointly-sponsored by Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) and the InQubator for Quantum Simulation (IQuS), and will be held in the Hilton Hotel in Santa Fe.  The New Mexico Consortium (NMC) has kindly agreed to handle the logistics.

To register for this event :  REGISTRATION


We are committed to diverse, representative and supportive meeting.

IQuS, UW and LANL codes of conduct apply.
