Quantum Computing – From Algorithms to Applications

15.04 → 19.04 2019 | Universitätszentrum Obergurgl Austria

We would like to announce the workshop: “Quantum Computing – From Algorithms to Applications” to be held at the Universitätszentrum Obergurgl, 15.-19. April 2019 (Arrival Sunday 14th April, departure Saturday 20th April).

The workshop intends to bring together leading researchers in the field for an update and in-depth discussions on the current experimental platforms and their evolution towards scalable quantum computing. A particular emphasis of the workshop is to formulate a vision for larger scale quantum computation, beyond the currently available several ten (noisy) qubits. Aside from the platform development, algorithms and their potential applications are of special interest.

Invited Speakers include: Rick v Bijnen, H. Briegel, I. Cirac, J. Emerson, J. Gambetta*, J. Home, A. Laing, M. Lukin, C. Marcus, T. Monz, H. Pichler, A. Walraff, N. Wiebe, P. Walther, Xiao Xue
*to be confirmed

Besides the invited talks that are intended to present both their own work and an overview and status of the field, there will be room for contributed ‘Hot Topic’ talks, and we will have two extended poster sessions. In addition, we plan focused discussion sessions on topics like: ‘What are the classical resources needed to run a quantum computer’ or ‘The role of critical components to execute algorithms’ or the ‘Critical assessment of the status and its prospects’

The Universitätszentrum Obergurgl belongs to the university of Innsbruck, and is located in the center of the Öztaler Alpen, at the end of the Öztal. More information can be found at All participants will stay at the Universitätszentrum Obergurgl which will give us all unique possibilities to discuss and interact.

Participation fee: 850€ (Students 700€). This includes accommodation in shared rooms + half board (Breakfast+Dinner) at the Universitätszentrum Obergurgl and the transfer from Innsbruck to Obergurgl on April 14thand back to Innsbruck on April 20th. There is a small number of single rooms available for an extra cost of 210€.
