Seidenberg Student-Faculty Research Day provides students and faculty with the opportunity to present their research.

This year's conference is dedicated to Richard Feynman who first proposed a quantum computer model.

   Richard Feynman was an American theoretical physicist known for his work in the path integral formulation of quantum mechanics, the theory of quantum electrodynamics, and the physics of the superfluidity of supercooled liquid helium. He assisted in the development of the atomic bomb during World War II. He received the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1965. In 1981, Feynman in his talk (and also in his famous lecture "There's Plenty of Room at the Bottom") at the First Conference on the Physics of Computation, held at MIT, proposed a basic model for a quantum computer.
