The Rocky Mountain Summit on Quantum Information will be held at JILA, University of Colorado Boulder, June 25-29, 2018. It aims to bring together researchers working in any field related to quantum information, and it will be organized with a focus on collaboration and discussions among the participants, accompanied by a sparse schedule of a few talks per day.
The talks in the mornings take place in the JILA auditorium. In the afternoons, the collaborations and informal discussions will take place in the Foothills room (10th floor, JILA tower), and in JILA X317.
The workshop is preceded by ISIT 2018 held in Vail, Colorado, June 18-22, and we encourage people attending it to consider staying on for RMSQI. We would also like to encourage participants/lecturers of the Boulder School 2018: Quantum Information in Boulder, Colorado, July 2-27, which will take place immediately after the workshop, to consider attending RMSQI.
There is also the Aspen Summer Workshop From Physics to Applications of Quantum Computers, held at the Aspen Center for Physics, Aspen, CO, May 27 - June 17.
As you can see, spending your summer in Colorado is a good idea for any quantum scientist!

For international travelers, CU Boulder and JILA are best reached by flying into Denver airport, which is served by most major airlines, including direct connections from London, Paris, Frankfurt, Munich, Tokyo, etc.
Since Denver is a (domestic) United hub, you can usually reach it from any major airport with just one lay-over by flying into either East coast (e.g., New York City, Washington DC, Chicago), West coast (e.g., Los Angeles, San Francisco), or one of the Texas airports (Houston, Dallas).
Getting to CU Boulder/JILA from Denver airport
The best way to reach CU Boulder from Denver airport is to take the bus route AB that leaves directly from the bus terminal beneath the airport (at the airport, leave through the exit Westin Hotel/Transit Center and take the escalators down).
The AB line directly serves the CU Boulder campus with stops at Broadway/Regent Dr (preferred stop to reach JILA), Broadway/Euclid Ave, and Broadway/Pleasant St. The total driving time is about 1h, and a one-way ticket costs $9.

Getting to CU Boulder/JILA from Vail, CO (ISIT venue)
The participants coming directly from ISIT taking place in Vail, CO have two options: Either drive (driving time: ~2.25h, see the route on Google maps), or take the following buses:
- Bustang from Vail Transportation Center to Denver Union Station, leaves at 7.05am and 8.40am, one-way ticket $17.
- FF1 or FF2 from Denver Union Station to CU Boulder, stop Broadway/Regent Dr, leaves every 30min Mon-Sun (FF1), or every 10min Mon-Fri from 6.30am to 9.30am (FF2), one-way ticket $4.50.
