Winter School on Contemporary Quantum Algorithms and Applications

February 22 - 24, 2023


The Challenge Institute for Quantum Computation (CIQC) and IPAM are pleased to present the third annual Winter School in Quantum Information Science. This year’s school will turn its focus to Contemporary Quantum Algorithms and Applications and will provide both an in-depth primer of the building blocks of quantum algorithms and survey of recent advances for both near-term (NISQ) and far-term (Fault Tolerant) quantum platforms. Topics that will be included in this winter school include:

  1. Introduction and basic algorithms
  2. Algorithms for NISQ: an honest assessment
  3. Quantum machine learning
  4. Quantum simulation
  5. Quantum complexity theory

The school is aimed at experimentalists and new theory students working in quantum information science and related fields. We aim to convene a multidisciplinary group of students and researchers who will disseminate and accelerate developments in the field, and to draw on their own research to help inspire new approaches and application domains. Applications are now being accepted. Financial support will be offered  to young researchers subject to demonstrated need and availability.
