W08 Workshop on Quantum Computing

Friday, 13 March 2020 08:20
Friday, 13 March 2020 17:00

Quantum computers promise substantial speedups over conventional computers for many practical relevant applications such as quantum chemistry, optimization, machine learning, cryptography, quantum simulation, systems of linear equations, and many more. While considered "dreams of the future" for a long time, recent years have shown impressive accomplishments -- as witnessed by the recent discussions on whether quantum advantage compared to classical devices has been achieved. At the same time, research in this area requires to bring together experts from different fields such as physics, math, theory, computer science, and, of course, design automation. 

This workshop aims to provide a forum for that. It features invited talks by leading experts covering the broad range of the area including the physical realization of quantum computers, the software needed to run quantum algorithms on it, applications showing the benefits of the technology, as well as further challenges such as noise and fault tolerance to deal with. Besides that, participants are encouraged to present own contributions in a dedicated poster session (see call for contributions below). By this, the workshop shall provide an informal venue for both, researchers already working in the area but also researchers interested in the topic.

Call for Poster Contributions

We kindly encourage participants of the workshop to present their own work in the domain of quantum computing at the workshop. To this end, we are planning a poster session for which we reserve a dedicate slot in the program. Interested participants are requested to submit their contributions (including a title as well as a brief abstract) via mail to robert [dot] willeatjku [dot] at.
