Summer School on Quantum Computing (Theory and Implementations), Sept. 5-9 2022

This summer school is a 5-day introduction to quantum computing, organized together with the International University Menéndez-Pelayo and sponsored by the Spanish Research Council (CSIC) and the European project SuperQuLAN. The school is oriented to PhD students, master and final year undergraduate students, as well as professionals interested in this exciting topic. No previous knowledge on quantum computing is required, however some background in quantum physics is needed to follow the course.

Lectures at the school will cover the principles of quantum computing, quantum variational algorithms, quantum machine learning, as well as physical implementations of quantum computers and quantum networks with superconducting circuits, trapped ions and neutral atoms, imparted by the following speakers:

  • Daniel Barredo (CINN-CSIC)
  • Alba Cervera Lierta (Barcelona Supercomputing Center)
  • Pol Forn Díaz (Institut de Física d’Altes Energies (IFAE))
  • Juan José García Ripoll (IFF-CSIC)
  • Winfried Hensinger (University of Sussex)
  • Alejandro Perdomo Ortiz (Zapata Computing)
  • Diego Porras (IFF-CSIC)
  • Gerhard Rempe (Max-Planck-Institute for Quantum Optics), to be confirmed
  • Tim Taminiau (QuTech & TU Delft), to be confirmed
  • Andreas Walraff (ETH Zürich)
  • Roberta Zambrini (IFISC-CSIC)
