Symposium

Inclusive Leadership Symposium 2023

Wednesday, February 1, 2023 - 10:00 to Thursday, February 2, 2023 - 16:00
Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology Graduate University, Auditorium and Conference Center.

In the face of ongoing change across our world, societies, and organizations, Inclusive Leadership is critical for creating conditions and climates that enhance adaptability, empowerment and collaboration, and a strong sense of community and belonging. This year’s symposium brings us together to explore how the qualities of inclusive leadership can be engendered at multiple levels across our institutions.

We invite participants from Japan and across the world to engage in discussions, inquiry, and strategic thinking to explore how to: develop institutional cultures where every individual can thrive and their contributions are valued; instill ownership amongst leaders at all levels to actively foster inclusion and equity; empower those who identify as people from minoritized and underrepresented backgrounds to realize their full leadership potential.

Quantum error correction with dissipatively stabilized squeezed cat qubits

Thursday, February 16, 2023 - 10:00

Quantum computers can use many forms of quantum systems to encode and process quantum information. There has been a lot of interest recently on using modes of light to encode quantum information but this brings with it some questions about how to encode quantum information into an infinite dimensional Hilbert space which is robust against errors. This talk will show how this can be achieved.

OIST is a private university established in 2011, under Japanese government auspices. While new, OIST has made remarkable progress by conducting research that bridges disciplines to explore new frontiers of scientific knowledge. Keio University, Japan’s first private university founded in 1858, has led Japanese academia with its tradition and innovative mindset. Both universities now come together to launch interdisciplinary collaboration at an institutional level. The “Keio-OIST Showcase Talk” series is our signature event, where researchers not only present their recent research, but can seek advice, discuss solutions, and find friends and prospective collaborators.
