Quantum Computing Theory in Practice Conference
Centre for Mathematical Sciences, Cambridge | 6-8 April 2020

Centre for Mathematical Sciences in Cambridge

Marking its 10th anniversary, this year’s Quantum Computing Theory in Practice Conference will take place in Cambridge.

After decades of research, we are finally getting closer to unlocking the power of quantum computing. With recent developments in quantum hardware and software, quantum computations that are of real-world relevance, for example in the development of new drugs and batteries, seem to be within reach. However, a lot of theoretical groundwork in quantum simulation and quantum algorithms research has yet to be done to reach these ambitious goals.

This conference will foster the discussion between theorists and practitioners of quantum computing which will be crucial on our path towards useful quantum computations. With top keynote speakers, a series of invited talks from academia and industry, poster sessions and panels, we will be taking stock of the newest developments in the field and give a glimpse into what the future could look like. Riverlane is proud to be hosting the conference.

Organising Committee: Steve Brierley, Noah Linden, Ashley Montanaro, Leonie Mueck

Programme Chair: Iordanis Kerenidis, Université Paris Diderot
