The Quantum Simulation and Computation 2019 is the seventh iteration of a conference series that started in Benasque in 2011. The conference deals with the short, mid- and long-term goals and applications of quantum simulators and quantum computers, with a strong focus on current and upcoming technologies and state-of-the-art algorithmic developments. Important questions that motivate the conference are
– The utility of NISQ simulators and computers for short-term practical applications, both in fundamental science and industry.
-The implementation and scalability of simulators and computers in different quantum platforms: cold atoms, trapped ions, superconducting circuits, quantum photonics, quantum dots..
– Advances in quantum software, from new algorithms with provable quantum advantages, to quantum-inspired classical methods.
We will discuss these and other topics together with leading figures in experiments and theory, who will showcase the state-of-the-art in the field and provide us with an outlook for the near- and long-term future.
