Quantum Computing for Natural Sciences: Technology and Applications

Quantum Computing for Natural Sciences: Technology and Applications
Date: Tue 17 Sep 2024
Time: 10:00 am - 4:30 pm
Location: IEEE Quantum Week, Palais des Congrès, Montréal, Québec, Canada

Following the success of last year’s workshop, we are delighted to announce the second edition of “Quantum Computing for Natural Sciences: Technology and Applications,” a follow-up event aimed at further exploring the transformative potential of quantum computing in the natural sciences. The quest for novel and more powerful information processing methods – capable of tackling some of the hardest computational problems in the natural sciences – lies at the heart of the quantum computing revolution. As the technology progresses, what was originally only conceived in theory comes closer to becoming reality. The potential applications of quantum computing in the natural sciences are vast and varied, ranging from simulating complex chemical reactions and materials to modelling biological systems and developing new drug treatments. This full-day workshop on quantum computing for natural sciences is aimed at providing participants with a comprehensive overview of the latest advancements in quantum information processing methods and their potential applications in fundamental physics, chemistry, materials and life sciences. Upon feedback from attendees of the first edition, we retained the workshop structure by dividing it into three sections, each devoted to a specific area, where experts in the respective fields will share their knowledge and provide talks on the current state-of-the-art and ongoing research efforts. The workshop aims to equip participants with a deeper understanding of the potential of quantum computing to revolutionize the natural sciences, highlighting the implications of this technology for future research and development efforts.


Keynote talks: TBC


Abstract submission for contributing talk.

We are currently accepting abstracts for selected contributing talks covering any of the above topics (closing date: July 31st). Please, submit your abstract at this link. We encourage authors to upload an extended abstract/full paper of the proposed talk. Applications will be then reviewed by the organising committee. Notification of acceptance will be provided by August 6th. Accepted speakers will have to register to attend the conference via the IEEE Quantum Week website.
