Application Deadline: 12/15/17
Conference Description:
This conference follows two previous successful conferences in 2014 and 2016 which asked: if we had a quantum computer, what would we do with it? Then, quantum computers were still hypothetical devices that would use the quantum mechanical properties of superposition and entanglement to solve problems that are likely to be forever out of reach of classical computers. Now, there is a major worldwide effort to build scalable quantum computers to realize crucial, world-changing speedups over classical computers. Even larger quantum computers are being placed online and by 2018, we expect to see the first quantum computers actually outperforming the runtime of classical computers for certain problems.

We bring together experts from diverse research avenues to discuss progress in quantum algorithms, identify killer applications of quantum computers, and discuss key challenges in the development of quantum algorithms for existing small- and near-term medium-scale quantum devices. The conference will highlight topics at the forefront of quantum computing, including:

o Adiabatic Quantum Optimization and Quantum Annealing o Quantum Algorithms in the Quantum Circuit Model
o Quantum Query Models
o Quantum Simulation of Physical Systems
o Classical Methods for Simulation of Quantum Algorithms o Quantum Fault Tolerance and Error Correction
o Quantum Hardware Advances
o Quantum Circuit Optimization
o Quantum Network Protocols
