**Andrew Childs**has been at Waterloo since 2007. Previously, he was a postdoc at the Caltech Institute for Quantum Information. He received his Ph.D. in physics in 2004 at MIT under the supervision of Eddie Farhi, writing a thesis on Quantum Information Processing in Continuous Time. He is interested in quantum algorithms.

**Richard Cleve**has been based in Waterloo since 2004. He received his Ph.D. in 1989 from the University of Toronto under the supervision of Charles Rackoff, specializing in (non-quantum) cryptography and complexity theory. He became curious about quantum computing around 1994, and now works mostly in this field.

**Stephen Jordan**recieved his Ph.D. in 2008 from MIT's physics department, under the advising of Eddie Farhi. His thesis was on Quantum Computation Beyond the Circuit Model. His current research interests include quantum algorithms and alternative methods of quantum computation such as the adiabatic and topological models.
