QuEST School 2018 “Quantum Technologies with Light” - Singapore - January 8-13, 2018

The QuEST (Quantum Engineering Science and Technologies) School is conceived as an extension of the QuEST Symposium held in November 2016 in Singapore. It aims at initiating a series of Symposia and Schools that will be held on alternate years in different countries, with themes each time chosen by the scientific committee, within the subject of Quantum Engineering Science and Technologies. The QuEST School is dedicated to welcoming graduate students to lectures by experts on a variety of topics in line with a chosen theme.

QuEST School 2018 will focus on the theme of "Quantum Technologies with Light" and will be held in Singapore from 8 to 13 January 2018.

The program of QuEST School 2018 covers six topics within the theme, with six hours of lecture time per topic.

Apply now! The application deadline is 24 September 2017.

Grants to subsidise travel, accommodations and/or registration fees will be available. Due to limited funding, financial support will be awarded to the selected students on a first-come-first-serve basis.
