With great pleasure you are invited to a minisymposium on Quantum approaches to computing.

It will take place in the afternoon of Friday 31 May, starting at 13:30 in the Petit Amphi de Math (PAM) of the UFR de mathématique et d’informatique (Esplanade campus).

The event will be aimed at a general audience, and students are especially encouraged to attend.

Poster of the mini-symposium


13h30 – Opening remarks   Pierre Collet / Shannon Whitlock

13h40 – Quantum computing: Concepts and recent developments   Stefanie BarzInstitute for Functional Matter and Quantum Technologies, Stuttgart University

In my talk, I will give a basic introduction into quantum computing. I will first introduce the basic concepts, qubits and quantum gates, and will show some fundamental quantum algorithms. I will then give an overview of different experimental systems and show some implementations of quantum computation. I will conclude the talk with a summary of future challenges.

14h30 – Entanglement as an emergent complex system  Pierre ColletCSTB team, ICUBE laboratory, UFR Mathématique et Informatique, University of Strasbourg

15h10 – Coffee Break

15h30 – From quantum simulation to quantum computing, with ultracold atoms   Shannon WhitlockIPCMS, University of Strasbourg & CNRS

16h00 – Variational quantum state engineering and hybrid quantum-classical computing   Tobias WintermantelIPCMS & University of Heidelberg

16h30 – General Discussion / Brainstorming

QMat PhD presentations

The QMat PhD presentations will take place on Tuesday, march 19th, 2019 between 2pm and 5pm at the auditorium of the IPCMS.  These presentations will be an experienced feedback from the PhD students to the Master students. This represents a very good opportunity to express the research in a simple popularized format. To know more details, please have a look at above schedule .

Scientific Art Exhibition:From Nano to Macro World, 23/10/2018

QMat proudly supports the Scientific Art Exhibition – From Nano to Macro World

From the proton to the observable universe, scientists have captured infinite images that represent the world around us. Come to see the fascinating scale difference between the different research fields. StrasAir organized a Scientific Art-Exhibition: From Nano to Macro World on 23rd October 2018 at the College Doctorale Européen, Strasbourg, France. The chief guest and judge of the event was Ms. Elisabeth Brown (Media Editor | Nature). Along with judging the images, she also presented a short talk. In the end, three best images were awarded the prizes. To learn more about the event, please follow the link:
