The Summer Cluster on Quantum Computing will bring together researchers from academia and industry to explore topics from quantum complexity theory and cryptography to quantum algorithms, benchmarking, error-correction and fault tolerance. The program will have a special focus on NISQ (Near-term Intermediate-Scale Quantum) computers and complexity-based evidence of quantum advantage. A major challenge in this direction is to define milestones for the next generation of quantum computers that are beyond the capabilities of classical computers and yet can be verified efficiently.


Workshop on Quantum Computing: July 10-14

There will be a series of one-day mini-workshops throughout the summer. Each mini-workshop will be devoted to an open question or theme, and will be designed to spawn an active collaboration for the rest of the week and beyond. The theme of each mini-workshop is TBD. They will be held on Tuesdays, on the following dates:

June 12, 20, 27, July 18, 25, Aug 1
