Quantum Computing workshop
Registration has closed
Argonne National Laboratory will hold its first Quantum Computing workshop from Wednesday, July 25, through Friday, July 27, 2018, in the Building 240 TCS Conference Center.
The workshop has four primary goals:
- To inform attendees about the quantum computing programs at several participating institutions and highlight promising research opportunities
- To serve as an incubator for future collaborations
- To teach attendees about available tools for simulating quantum computers and how to use them
- To present state-of-the-art research in quantum computing
The three-day event will feature speakers from Argonne, the University of Chicago, Intel, Google, Rigetti, Atos and several other national laboratories and companies.
Each day of the workshop will have a different theme:
- Wednesday: An overview of quantum-computing-related programs and research opportunities
- Thursday: Presentations and tutorials on quantum-computing programming environments, software stacks and algorithms
- Friday: Research presentations (including student presentations)
The workshop is open to advanced graduate students, postdoctoral associates, staff and faculty from colleges, universities, research laboratories and industry nationwide.
There is no fee to attend the workshop, but participants are responsible for their own travel expenses. Space is limited and registration is required. Please do not make non-refundable travel arrangements until your registration is confirmed by Argonne.
