We are happy to announce that the registration for the Annual Retreat of the CRC 1225 ISOQUANT Young Researchers’ Convent is now open! Due to the current Covid-19 situation, we decided to turn the retreat into a fully online event which will take place from May 17-19, 2021.

The main intention of this event is to provide a platform for cross-project collaboration and the opportunity to intensify exchanges and networking between young researchers (bachelor, master and PhD students & young postdocs) within the IsoQuant collaboration. This year’s subject will be  “Quantum Computation: Solving Problems on Quantum Hardware”.

Prof. Fred Jendrzejewski (IsoQuant), Prof. John Martinis (Silicon Quantum Computing, Sydney, formerly at Google), Dr. Juris Ulmanis (Quantum Alpine Technology, Innsbruck) and Dr. Christian Gogolin (Covestro, Germany) will join this online workshop contributing with lectures, talks and a panel discussion.

The plan is to develop small group projects focussing on current research topics ranging from gauge theories to quantum chemistry. You will get a glimpse at the current state of quantum technologies, run your own algorithm (eg. using Qiskit) on real quantum computers and hear leading experts on the future of quantum computation.

Registration is open now:
Deadline for registration is April 30, 2021!
