School on Quantum Computation

November 14-25, 2022 

ICTP-SAIFR, São Paulo, Brazil

Auditorium of IFT-UNESP

Home

Quantum computing has become a major hot topic in recent years, leading several countries around the world to launch billion-dollar initiatives to develop research in this area. In addition to such initiatives, large multinational corporations such as Google, IBM, Amazon, Microsoft and many new startups have also started to invest large amounts of money both in the construction of quantum computers and new algorithms, which explore the fundamental concepts of Quantum Theory to promise extraordinary gains in information processing even over the most powerful classical supercomputers.

The main purpose of the present school is to provide short courses and lectures from the basics concepts to the state of the art on quantum computing: quantum algorithm efficiency, quantum complexity theory, quantum simulators, adiabatic quantum computing, quantum machine learning, and different architectures where quantum computing can be implemented, such as superconducting qubits, trapped ions, and photonics systems. The school will also offer short courses about the use of quantum computing in the cloud.

There is no registration fee and limited funds are available fo travel and local expenses.
