Since March 1998, there is a regular discussion session on quantum computing every Friday at 5.00 pm.

The venue is the HEP lab at the Department of Physics, NUS. Everybody is welcome to participate in

the informal discussions and talks. In order to keep the talks and discussions accessible to everyone, we

may give some elementary talks on the topic to general audience in the near future. We will keep you

updated regarding the times and venues of these talks. If you are interested in this subject, we highly

recommend Preskill's marvelous lecture notes which is freely available through the web.

For more information, please send an email to: phyohch@nus.edu.sg

For those who just wish to acquaint themselves with the subject, there
are many articles and hyperlinks

to the subject. These articles are usually meant for the general
audience requiring little knowledge

of quantum mechanics.
