27 - 28 November 2013
Organisers: Steve Brierley (Bristol), Richard Jozsa (Cambridge) and Andreas Winter (Bristol)
in association with the Newton Institute programme Mathematical Challenges in Quantum Information
(27 August - 20 December 2013)
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.
Invited speakers will include:
Registration fees are covered by the Heilbronn Institute.
The Registration Package includes admission to all seminars, lunches and refreshments on the days that lectures take place (Wednesday - Thursday), wine reception and conference dinner, but does not include other meals or accommodation.
Participants on the Registration Package, including organisers and speakers, are automatically included in this event. For all remaining participants who would like to attend, such as Visiting Fellows, programme participants or their guests, the above charge will apply.
We are able to cover the travel and accommodation costs for PhD students to attend the workshop. If you would like to apply for this please do so as part of the application process. You will need to confirm that you do not have an alternative source of funding.
Unfortunately we do not have any accommodation to offer so all successful applicants will need to source their own accommodation. Please see the Hotels Combined website for a list of local hotels and guesthouses.
Lunch will be served at Wolfson Court in the Cafeteria from 12:30 to 13:30 on days that lectures take place.
Participants are free to make their own arrangements for dinner.
The Conference Dinner will take place at 19:30 on Wednesday 27 November at Cambridge Union Society - please see the menu for details. Dress is smart casual. Participants on the Registration Package, including organisers and speakers, are automatically included in this event. All remaining participants are encouraged to attend for the price of £50 each.
If you are on the dinner list please ensure you arrive by 19:15 at the venue.
