Date(s) - 22/07/2019 - 25/07/2019
All Day

School of Informatics, University of Edinburgh

The SICSA Research Theme Theory, Modelling and Computation is sponsoring QuHAckEd!

This event is taking place in The University of Edinburgh’s School of Informatics, QuHackEd is an exciting opportunity to learn more about recent developments in quantum computing.

Attendees of all levels of experience will learn about the intriguing world of quantum computation from expert talks and by writing programs for real quantum computers.

The event will be split into two tracks so that it caters for a range of experience:

Beginner Track: No knowledge of Quantum Computing is required to participate in this track and all participants will be brought up to speed on the basics of quantum computing. Several mentors and experts in the field will be on hand to answer any questions. Some experience with Python would be useful.

Advanced Track: For those working in the field of Quantum Information, this track aims to tackle some interesting problems at the cutting edge of research. While no knowledge of programming quantum computers is required, familiarity with Python would be useful.

Intermingling and collaboration between the two groups is welcomed and will be encouraged! Both tracks will have their own dedicated sets of lectures, with intermediate lectures, which would benefit both groups, also taking place.

More details of this event, including Attendance Details and a full list of Speakers can be found on the web-site:
