CQO9 June 10 - 13, 2007

ICQI June 13-15, 2007

at the University of Rochester



Founded in 1960, the Rochester Conference on Coherence and Quantum Optics is held every six years, and always on the campus of the University of Rochester. It has been host to a number of breakthrough presentations, for example the first conference discussion of Bell violation experiments by John Clauser, and has enjoyed a reputation as a (relatively) relaxed and friendly venue for personal conversations and scientific interaction across the entire spectrum of coherence and quantum optics. The many talks provide a perspective on the latest developments via tutorials, historical reviews, invited papers and poster sessions. There are also acres of lawns and quadrangles, numerous paths along the River and in the adjacent Frederick Olmstead-designed Genesee Valley Park and Mt. Hope Cemetery, as well as squash and racquetball courts and fitness facilities, all of which are available to conferees.


The Ninth Rochester Conference on Coherence and Quantum Optics (CQO9)

The Ninth Rochester Conference on Coherence and Quantum Optics (CQO9) is the latest in a historic series of conferences that began in 1960. The conferences have been held on the campus of the University of Rochester every six years. They provide a perspective on the developments in the field for the past few years and highlight the latest developments in a series of tutorials, historical reviews, invited papers and poster sessions. The tutorials and historical reviews, along with the university setting with reasonably priced dormitory housing and food, make this conference especially attractive for students and young researchers.

The International Conference on Quantum Information (ICQI)
The International Conference on Quantum Information will be held June 13-15 in Rochester, New York, collocated and partially overlapping with the Rochester Conference on Coherence and Quantum Optics (CQO9). Quantum information is an exciting, rapidly growing area of scientific interest and development.
