ML4Q Concepts seminar series – Majorana fermions

The first ML4Q Concepts seminar series will kick off in December and will have its first focus on Majorana fermions. The talks will be primarily aimed at PhD students and postdocs associated to ML4Q, and there will be plenty of opportunity for questions and interactions. The full schedule and additional details can be found on the event webpage. The Zoom link will be sent via the cluster’s mailing lists.
