Symposium on quantum simulations and molecular energy transport 30/11 – 01/12/2020

QMat researchers have organised a (virtual) symposium on the topic of quantum simulations and molecular energy transport in collaboration with researchers at IISER Bhopal in India as part of a Franco-Indian collaboration (funded by the Indo-French Centre for the Promotion of Advanced Research, CEFIPRA).

Dates: 30.11.2020 – 01.12.2020 (two days)
Topics: quantum simulators for molecular dynamics, energy transfer, open quantum systems, sensing and spectroscopy. Please see the flyer for more information.

Register before 28.11.2020:

Mini-symposium on Quantum Approaches to Computing, 31 May 2019

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
