Description
MSRI has chartered the UC Berkeley Hill Shuttle bus for Saturday and Sunday. It will run on the regular weekday schedule, but starting a little later (first bus leaves the Mining Circle at 8:15am) and ending earlier (last bus leaves MSRI at 5:30pm). Invited Speakers include: Dorit Aharonov, Gilles Brassard, Charles Bennett, Michael Ben-Or, Claude Crepeau, Wim van Dam, Ronald de Wolf, Edward Farhi, Sean Hallgren, Patrick Hayden, Rahul Jain, Alexei Kitaev, Samuel Lomonaco, Keiji Matsumoto, Michele Mosca, Michael Nielsen, Sandu Popescu, John Preskill, Ran Raz, Oded Regev, Mary Beth Ruskai, Miklos Santha, Rudiger Schack, Guifre Vidal, John Watrous, and Andreas Winter. There will be a Rump session of short talks on recent results; please email qip@msri.org if you wish to speak during this session. There will be an experimental Interactive Web Support for QIP.
