My great friend Gabriel Aguilar (IF-UFRJ), aka Gabo, is part of the organizing committee of the BLOCO 2014. This is a satellite event for the Quantum Optics VII. The BLOCO is organized by students and postdocs with the aim of bringing together young researchers from Latina America working on Quantum Optics and Quantum Information. The official language of this event is the Portuñol, but non-Portuñol speakers are also welcome!
That is a great innitiative, and I’m sure the BLOCO 2014 will be as huge success as its previous editions. Congratulations to all the organizers and participants!
