QT 5198 web page

This is the web page for the CQT PhD seminar module. In this AY2018/19S2 edition, we go through journal-club-like paper presentations, conference/seminar-stype presentations of quantum information related subjects, and some poster presentations.



This module takes place normally on Tuesdays, 4pm-6pm in the seminar room S15-06-22. As of now, the schedule is as follows:
