Cargese School of Quantum Information and Quantum Technology

21 - 25 June 2021

Welcome to the Cargese Scientific Institute,

From June 21st to 25th 2021, we have the unique opportunity to organise a live event in Cargese, Corsica.

The summer school will happen LIVE  with a limit to 50% of the on-site capacity.

This school targets Master and PhD students in the field of Quantum Information. We will propose an interdisciplinary program between physics, computer science and quantum engineering.

The program includes basic lectures/tutorials and more advanced seminars to cover a large part of the field.

Finally, all participants are required to prepare a poster to share their recent works with other students.

The premises of the Institute are spread across three groups of buildings. In the central buildings are located the administrative structures, the restaurant, a meeting room and a first amphitheatre. Around the second amphitheater  are located several offices, 2 meeting room for 30 people. A third building constructed in 2011 according to the most modern energy saving criteria is exclusively dedicated to housing. A dining room, public rest rooms and showers are also available there. The villa Menasina (4)  is located about 500 meters from the central buildings. It is the historic site, where the first meetings were held in the sixties. Today it is in general reserved for the organizers and their family.


The Institute housing facilities on site include 27 double rooms (with single occupancy due to COVID), a studio and a villa (for 2-6 persons). Three rooms are fully accessible to persons with reduced mobility.
