Third QuILT Day

Peter Bierhorst of UNO, Mark Wilde of LSU, and Ryan Glasser of Tulane are excited to announce the third QuILT (Quantum Information Technologies in Louisiana) day, which will take place at the University of New Orleans on Monday, March 25, 2019. All lectures will be held in Rm 407 (Dougie Hitt room) on the fourth floor of Earl K. Long Library (UNO Main Library). Parking is available for $3 in the lot near the library.

Researchers from UNO, LSU, Tulane, and the surrounding areas will be joining together for a day of quantum information (and related!) presentations, with the goal of fostering future collaborations, and expanding Louisiana's research effort in quantum sciences and technology.

We look forward to seeing you there!

Information regarding the location can be found here.

Driving directions: Approach the university on Leon C. Simon Drive, which runs along the southern boundary of UNO. Turn into the university at Waldo Dr. (called “Founders road” on campus), which is the first possible left into UNO after you cross the canal if you are heading due east. Drive about ¼ mile and take a right at the sign that says “visitor parking” and “library”; this is the second grey and blue sign that you encounter on your right. Parking is 3 dollars, and the Earl K. Long library (conference location) is at the back of the parking lot.

Public transit: NORTA bus lines 51, 52, 55, and 60 all have scheduled stops at the main UNO bus stop, though busses are not frequent: every ~20 minutes for 51/52 bus, 30-40 minutes for 55 bus, and hourly for 60 bus.
