We're going to have a meetup on Thursday, November 28th at VisionMap's offices, Gibor Sport House, 15th floor, 7 Menachem Begin st., Ramat-Gan.
Our program is:

Main Talk: Quantum Computing / Anatoly Vorobey
We're used to living in a world where things happen in order. But in reality of quantum physics, things work a little differently. This lets us do all sorts of cool things which starting with the basics of computing theory - you'll learn about in this talk.
Backup Talk: TBA
Rump Session: Each participant will give a 4-minute talk (+3 minute encore if we applaud hard enough). Giving a talk isn't mandatory, but it's highly recommended. Not confident that what you have to say is relevant to our interests? Unsure about your public speaking skills? Doesn't matter - in the rump session, anything goes. - Note, you don't have to prepare a talk to come! Speaking at the rump session is completely only if you want to.
