Heilbronn Quantum Algorithms meeting


we have been made aware of a very convincing phone scam that is focusing on our workshop participants. Participants may be contacted by phone by a firm called Business Travel Management to arrange accommodation for workshops and/or programmes.  This includes a request to enter credit card information.

Please note, INI will never contact you over the phone requesting card details. We take all payments via the University of Cambridge Online store

If you have been contacted by this company please contact us as soon as possible.

27th November 2013 to 28th November 2013

Organisers: Steve Brierley (Bristol), Richard Jozsa (Cambridge) and Andreas Winter (Bristol)

Workshop Theme

The study of algorithms that exploit properties of quantum systems is an exciting and challenging area. Quantum computing offers the potential to solve problems (exponentially) faster than classical computing. Algorithms have been developed for problems from diverse areas of mathematics including number theory, algebraic geometry, combinatorics, group theory, and simulations of physical systems. However, much is yet to be discovered about what problems a quantum computer could solve more efficiently than any classical device and which problems remain hard.

The meeting will showcase highlights in quantum algorithms research. We will have two days of outstanding speakers invited from around the world to talk about their recent work. Continuing the success of previous events, we expect the discussions to be lively and informative.

This event is supported by the Heilbronn Institute.
