ITAMP/B2 Institute Winter Graduate School on AMO Physics 2017
This is the 6th in a series of Winter Graduate Schools for AMO Physics and will be held from January 4-11, 2017 on the B2 Institute Campus. The main theme will be "Quantum Information Fundamentals and Applications". The school will bring together topnotch lecturers who will each give multiple lectures along these themes in a relaxed atmosphere that leaves plenty of time for informal discussions and interactions, away from the distractions of everyday life, with plenty of opportunities for teachers and students to mingle outside the classroom, and possible to initiate new collaborative projects. The meeting is aimed primarily at graduate students representing a broad spectrum of interests in experimental and theoretical research in AMO physics and who come from geographical diverse programs.

Organized by The Institute for Theoretical Atomic, Molecular and Optical Physics* and the B2 Institute
(*ITAMP is funded by the National Science Foundation)

Lecturers: 
Steve Girvin (Yale), Wolfgang Lechner (Innsbruck), Seth Lloyd (MIT), Misha Lukin (Harvard), Chris Monroe (JQI - UMD), Matthias Troyer (Microsoft), Susanne Yelin (UConn & Harvard)
