On June 5th, always at 1-2 PM UTC, we will meet Yasser Omar, Professor at IST – Instituto Superior Tecnico, University of Lisbon, Portugal. He will present LEA – Listening to the Earth under the Atlantic, a pioneering project aiming at developing real-time sensing at the bottom of the Atlantic, namely to monitor the oceanic environment and its relation to climate change, as well as to sense submarine earthquakes live, opening way to novel and more reliable solutions for the early-warning of tsunamis, civil protection, and coastal resilience. The session will be moderated by Jose Barros, Director of External Affairs of ANACOM, which is the Portuguese National Regulatory Authority for communications.
The second workshop of project QuantHEP – Quantum Computing Solutions for High-Energy Physics will take place on 18-19 May 2020, online.
The Physics of Information and Quantum Technologies Group is involved in the launching and organization of the new Mathematics, Physics, and Machine Learning Seminar (MPML), aiming at exploring the connections between these fields, namely discussing Mathematics- and Physics-inspired techniques for Machine Learning, as well as, reciprocally, applying Machine Learning to problems in Mathematics and Physics.
To receive the announcements of the MPML Seminar (including the link for each session), register here.
The first session will take place on 14 May 2020. The programme of the MPML Seminar is available here.

Article on "Covering Problems and Core Percolations on Hypergraphs" to appear in Physical Review Letters on the arXiv
The article on Covering Problems and Core Percolations on Hypergraphs, by B. C. Coutinho, A. Wu, H.-J. Zhou, and Y.-Y. Liu, has been accepted for publication in Physical Review Letters.
The article on Structural Vulnerability of Quantum Networks, by A.-K. Wu, L. Tian, B. C. Coutinho, Y. Omar, and Y.-Y. Liu, has been accepted for publication in Physical Review A.
A recent report of the United States Department of Energy “Quantum for Fusion, Fusion for Quantum” has highlighted several opportunities for scientific discovery and technology advances at the interface of quantum computing and quantum technologies with fusion and plasma physics.
With the goal of fostering and promoting the dialogue across these two areas and to promote the interdisciplinary interaction between the researchers working in these fields, the Group of Lasers and Plasmas at IPFN, and the Physics of Information and Quantum Technologies Group at IT will host a series of monthly discussion sessions on Quantum for Plasmas & Plasmas for Quantum (QPPQ).
Everyone is welcome to attend. Each session will include a summary or review talk of 30 minutes followed by a discussion of 30 minutes. The discussion sessions will run once per month, and will be hosted by Yasser Omar and Luis O. Silva.
