QCTIP 2020 — Quantum Computing Theory in Practice
06 Apr 2020 - 08 Apr 2020 • Cambridge, United Kingdom
Organizer:
Riverlane | University of Bristol | Centre for Mathematical Sciences, Cambridge
Abstract:
After decades of research, we are finally getting closer to unlocking the power of quantum computing. With recent developments in quantum hardware and software, quantum computations that are of real-world relevance, for example in computational chemistry, seem to be within reach. However, a lot of theoretical groundwork has yet to be done to reach these ambitious goals. Continuing the previous series of Heilbronn quantum algorithms meetings (2010-2019) hosted in Bristol and Cambridge, QCTIP fosters discussion between theorists and practitioners of quantum computing.
Topics:
The first theme of the conference is the theory of the whole quantum software stack – from quantum algorithms to quantum programming languages to quantum computing architectures. Second, we will discuss practical aspects of running experiments on current and NISQ devices. As a third future-looking theme, we want to touch on roads to scaling up to more and higher quality qubits and the path to bringing down hardware requirements for quantum computations.

26th International Conference on DNA Computing and Molecular Programming
13 Sep 2020 - 18 Sep 2020 • University of Oxford, United Kingdom
Organizer:
Institute of Physics – IOP
Abstract:
Biomolecular computing has emerged as an interdisciplinary field that draws together molecular biology, chemistry, computer science and mathematics. Our knowledge on DNA nanotechnology and biomolecular computing increases exponentially with every passing year. The annual international meeting in the field began in 1995 right after the landmark work by L. Adleman, who solved an instance of the Hamiltonian path problem by DNA molecules and opened the door to this new field. Since then, the meeting has been a forum where scientists with different backgrounds, yet sharing a common interest in biomolecular computing meet, and present their latest results.
