Quantum Software: 5th QSC Junior Day



10:00 - 19:30 hrs


Leiden: Huis van de Passer (Steenschuur 6)


The Quantum Software Consortium (QSC) brings together scientists with backgrounds in computer science, mathematics, engineering and physics. To that end, the 5th QSC Junior Day will be held on Thursday, Nov 17 in Leiden. We invite all junior researchers (Masters, PhD students, Post-Docs) to join us on this exciting day full of informal interaction, interesting talks and more.

Confirmed speakers are Martin van Exter (LION, Leiden), Tim Coopmans (LIACS, Leiden) and Liubov Markovich (LION, Leiden).

We like to welcome all of you, and attendance is free. Please only register for lunch and snacks/pizza if you really will attend. More information (and link for registration) can be found here.

Quantum Software Consortium (QSC) is a Gravitation Project of QuSoft (University of Amsterdam, Centrum Wiskunde & Informatica), Leiden University and QuTech (Delft University of Technology, Netherlands Organization for Applied Scientific Research). Developing new quantum software, by exploiting the counterintuitive effects of quantum mechanics, requires a unison of ideas from computer science, mathematics, and quantum physics. Large-scale efforts in the Netherlands and around the world are in progress to develop quantum technologies, as a full-blown quantum computer and large-scale quantum internet will have unprecedented computational and communication abilities. In order to achieve this move forward, forces must be combined. Therefore QSC is building a new research community in the Netherlands in Quantum Information Science.
