@akhmerov
Simons / Flatiron: do we know a good contact there?
Valla Fatemi
@vfatemi_gitlab
no, but Liang said he'd leave a good word for us when he visits them later in the summer
Anton Akhmerov
@akhmerov
Excellent
sentefmi
@sentefmi
Simons/Flatiron: I might be your contact
i have been visiting a number of times and I know all three directors quite well
(Rubio, Georges, Millis)
Of course I cannot promise any funding
I am organizing a workshop there in auhudt
August
Valla Fatemi
@vfatemi_gitlab
Cool!
Well, if it comes up and they're interested, that'd be great.

Since it's Monday, let me try to summarize what is up:
  • Great to see that the Floquet school is moving forward #550 :heart_eyes_cat:
  • A colleague working in cQED was interested to hear about the diode workshop, and wonders if he'd like to organize a similar event
  • Still waiting on the diode workshop to confirm the video publication
Valla Fatemi
@vfatemi_gitlab
we are compilling the timestamps now
Anton Akhmerov
@akhmerov
:+1: thanks
neat article on the impact of virtual events
Valla Fatemi
@vfatemi_gitlab
Know anyone who might be interested to host a workshop on the imminent demise of quasiparticle poisoning in qubits?
I'm a bit "workshopped out" for the moment, but I think it would be a nice event to summarize all the good results in this area in the last year
Anton Akhmerov
@akhmerov
Nobody directly; can you name a few people?
Valla Fatemi
@vfatemi_gitlab
Gianluigi Catelani, Britton Plourde, Gijs de Lange (I could reach out to any of these), Robert McDermott
other possibilities but who are probably not interested in hosting are Leonid Glazman and Michel Devoret
Kyle Serniak

@akhmerov
Yeah, those aren't my community, so not on speed dial. I'm happy to help coordinate as usual.
If you want, you can approach and CC me

I am planning to include VSF-related stuff in my NSF CAREER application.
I am happy to share a draft version when it is ready for feedback.
One thing I wanted to ask everyone here -- what kinds of things would be helpful to get funded?
I have our APS Innovation Fund application as some inspiration.

But for example, would it be helpful if we were to pay for a higher level of Zoom account? https://zoom.us/pricing

If we aim to expand, then increasing maximum audience size would be beneficial, and the "large meetings" add-on is $600/year.

Any thoughts/feedback are welcome!
Anton Akhmerov
@akhmerov
If it's about how to spend money, then paying for our current account is the easiest.
Anton Akhmerov
@akhmerov
But that doesn't help us expand directly
Valla Fatemi
@vfatemi
How much is the current account?
Anton Akhmerov
@akhmerov
200-ish per month
Valla Fatemi
@vfatemi_gitlab
ok. I think for the application it is more meaningful to say that we could cover a higher level of account than just to maintain the existing account.
I am even thinking on including any or all of the three major parts of the aps innovation fund application (funds for experimentation with paid products, a freelance programmer to professionalize and streamline everything, an outreach specialist to expand our reach)
Anton Akhmerov
@akhmerov
Yes, absolutely. I think those still make sense.
Valla Fatemi
@vfatemi_gitlab
Thanks.
Evert van Nieuwenburg
@everthemore
@akhmerov this is a stretch, but perhaps there is a way to tap into this in the form of mini tutorials for undergraduate labs (the article is in Dutch, apologies to those who don't read Dutch; Google translate would say: 175k euro for working on open-source ideas for undergraduate labs in science) : https://www.universiteitleiden.nl/nieuws/2022/06/boost-voor-open-source-laboratoriumonderwijs-175.000-euro-subsidie
Anton Akhmerov
@akhmerov
Maybe too educational for our profile to be strong. https://www.dus-i.nl/subsidies/open-en-online-hoger-onderwijs does look interesting for "online education and learning materials"
Valla Fatemi
@vfatemi_gitlab
Perhaps that one could fund OLRAS
Anton Akhmerov
@akhmerov
Doubtful, although funding opportunities for OLRAS is a good question.
By the way everyone, we've published the first non-empty version of the living review: https://olras.virtualscienceforum.org/en/latest/olras.html

@everthemore
This is fantastic :D Is the whole thing a jupyter book?
Anton Akhmerov
@akhmerov
Thanks; "fantastic" is perhaps too generous, I'd already be happy with "promising". Yep, it's a jupyter book.
Babak
@babaks-git
@akhmerov what's the Zoom room capacity for the Floquet School? We have 385 registerations.
Babak
@babaks-git
@akhmerov And can we make Luis and Michael co-hosts on all the Zoom meetings? I think I can do this through our account but wasn't sure if there is any automation that may be broken if I manually do so.
Anton Akhmerov
@akhmerov
I replied in the issue.
