Winter School on Quantum Information Science for Chemistry

February 20 - 23, 2024


The Challenge Institute for Quantum Computation (CIQC), the Advanced Molecular Architectures for Quantum Information Science (AMAQIS), and IPAM are pleased to present the fourth annual Winter School in Quantum Information Science. This year’s school will turn its focus to Quantum Information Science for Chemistry and will provide both in-depth primers and surveys of current areas of active research in atomic, molecular, and materials systems for quantum information science applications, as well as quantum algorithms alongside methods of “usual” quantum chemistry.  Topics that will be included in this winter school include:

  • Introduction to Quantum Information
  • Classical Quantum Chemistry and QIS applications
  • Optical Cycling Centers
  • Quantum Algorithms for Chemistry
  • Molecular Spin Qubits

The school is aimed at early career participants, including graduate students, experimentalists, computational scientists, and theorists working in quantum information science and related disciplines. 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.

The application deadline is December 10.
