2024 - Near-Term Quantum Algorithms


Centre de Villégiature Jouvence - Québec - CANADA

Institut Quantique’s Quantum AlgoLab is organizing and hosting its first Summer School from June 2nd to 14th, 2024. The two-week event will be held at Jouvence, a resort on the shores of Lake Stukely and adjacent to Mont Orford national park in Quebec.

This event will focus on teaching quantum and hybrid algorithms targeting NISQ hardware. By the end of the school, students will be familiar with the design principles of noise-resistant algorithms. They will also be able to adapt and apply those principles to their respective domain. The summer school curriculum will be officially recognized by Université de Sherbrooke as a graduate course (3 credits).

All participants, in particular students and postdocs, are encouraged to submit abstracts for scientific talks and posters. Morning sessions will comprise of lectures and afternoon sessions will be dedicated to hands-on programming of quantum algorithms.

The AlgoLab is funded by Québec’s Ministry of Economy, Innovation, and Energy(MEIE). In 2020, the AlgoLab established the first IBM Quantum Hub in Canada and has since organized 120 + scientific events with more than 5000 participants to facilitate the adoption of quantum algorithms in academia, government, and industry.

Our goal is to bring researchers from different backgrounds together to discuss the latest advances in near-term quantum algorithms, which are currently at the heart of quantum computing.
