Conference Topic

The conference will highlight topics at the forefront of quantum computing and quantum algorithms. The primary goal is to bring together experts from a rich diversity of backgrounds to further the prospect of revolutions in quantum algorithms, and to discuss the key challenges in developing new techniques for solving computational problems on a quantum computer. Specific topics to be covered at the conference include:

  1. Bullet  Quantum Algorithms

  2. Bullet  Adiabatic Quantum Optimization and Quantum Annealing

  3. Bullet  Quantum Simulation of Physical Systems

  4. Bullet  Classical Methods for Simulation of Quantum Algorithms

  5. Bullet  Quantum Fault Tolerance and Error Correction

  6. Bullet  Quantum Hardware Advances

  7. Bullet  Applications for small and medium scale quantum computers
