Representatives from scientific communities and the world of Quantum Computing meet to discuss new opportunities for collaboration.
ORGANISER: Richard Catlow and Scott Woodley (UCL and MCC), Matthew Hutchings (SeeQC). Sponsored by the Q-LABS project.
SPEAKERS: Various, including Prof Paul Warburton speaking about the Q-LABS project.
TIME&VENUE: Tue, 14 May 2019 | 10:00 – 17:00 BST | LSE Bankside House | SE1 9JA
Quantum Computing is a new important opportunity potentially bringing enormous benefits to scientific research. A number of companies and academic teams offer their experimental and commercial developments in this field for work in different areas of science and engineering. We are organising a meeting that will bring together representatives of the industrial and academic communities active in the world of quantum computing and computational scientists in materials science and related areas of physics, chemistry, engineering and life science. Our aim is to highlight the new opportunities and explore what quantum computing can offer us now and in the near future. For example, can quantum computing tackle our current computational problems that we address with "conventional" supercomputers and at what cost, what alternative approaches the quantum computing can offer us opening new avenues, perhaps, allowing to approach currently unfeasible tasks or impossible challenges?
