Mr. Schreiner Invited to Leading Scientists’ Conference
The Kavli Institute of Theoretical Physics hosts an annual conference for the world’s leading scientists. Keith’s very own Lee Schreiner was invited to attend this year’s conference to learn about “The Quantum Era”. The conference will focus on the extension of quantum mechanics into areas outside of physics. Sounds exciting, Mr. Schreiner!
