If you are aware of an interesting new academic paper (that has been published in a peer-reviewed journal or has appeared on the arXiv), a conference talk (at an official professional scientific meeting), an external blog post (by a professional scientist) or a news item (in the mainstream news media), which you think might make an interesting topic for an FQXi blog post, then please contact us at with a link to the original source and a sentence about why you think that the work is worthy of discussion. Please note that we receive many such suggestions and while we endeavour to respond to them, we may not be able to reply to all suggestions.

Please also note that we do not accept unsolicited posts and we cannot review, or open new threads for, unsolicited articles or papers. Requests to review or post such materials will not be answered. If you have your own novel physics theory or model, which you would like to post for further discussion among then FQXi community, then please add them directly to the "Alternative Models of Reality" thread, or to the "Alternative Models of Cosmology" thread. Thank you.

I also mention that Ian Durham, who regular visitors know well as an FQXi member, quantum physicist and frequent FQXi podcast contributor, is running a summer school at Saint Anselm College in New Hampshire. It's on quantum computing and here are some more details from Ian:

Science and engineering stand before a new paradigm in which the exploitation of quantum phenomena offers major breakthroughs in sensing and measurement, computing and simulation, and communication and networking. Be a part of this revolution by joining Q-School!

Q-School is a two-week summer program taking place July 11 - 22, 2022 aimed at high school students wanting to develop real-world knowledge of quantum physics and information science. Through daily lectures and laboratory sessions, and an immersive experience with like-minded peers, students will learn the basics of quantum physics and computation, and ultimately develop and run code on a quantum computer."
