QBronze101 | Quantum Computing and Programming Workshop, Online, November 19-20 & 26-27, 2022
We are pleased to announce the worldwide QBronze quantum programming workshop. This workshop was organized by the cousins of QTurkey, QPakistan, QIran, QIndia, is a collective workshop specific to the geography where the cousins are the majority. Join us for the introductory workshop “Quantum Computing and Programming” and learn the basics of quantum computing and how to write simple quantum programs. Our workshops are free and fully-online.
We are inviting high school students, university and graduate students, researchers, professors, and industrial people from the world. During the quantum programming workshop, we will use the introductory tutorial Bronze-Qiskit by QWorld. We will use Discord to communicate with each other and conduct the workshop by Zoom meetings. Mentor support by QCousins will be provided in their mother tongue, material and lecture sessions are in English.
We will share homework via QWorld Canvas (five homework assignments, in total 100 pts). The participants who complete them all successfully (at least 50% for each) with at least 70 pts in total, will earn their diplomas!
Participants will be watching the lecture videos and completing the tasks on their own. Mentor support will be provided for participants to ask their questions and share their progress with mentors. The workshop will be held over 4 days, with a total of 20 hours of training.
Day 1 | November 17 (12:00 – 14:30 PM, GMT)
Day 2 | November 19 (12:00 – 14:30 PM, GMT)

Day 3 | November 20 (12:00 – 14:30 PM, GMT)
Basics of quantum systems
Superposition and Measurement | Visualization of a (Real-Valued) Qubit | Operations on the Unit Circle | Rotations | Reflections | Quantum Tomography | Two Qubits | Phase Kickback
Homework 1 for deadline (Deadline GMT PM 11:59)
Homework 2 for deadline (Deadline GMT PM 11:59)
Day 4 | November 26 (12:00 – 14:30 PM, GMT)
Multiple qubits and quantum communication protocols
Entanglement and Superdense Coding | Quantum Teleportation | Multiple Control Constructions
Day 5 | November 27 (12:00 – 14:30 PM, GMT)
Inversion About the Mean | Grover’s Search: One Qubit Representation | Grover’s Search: Implementation
Homework 3 for deadline (Deadline GMT PM 11:59)
Homework 4 for deadline (Deadline GMT PM 11:59)
The participants are expected to work individually at least 16 hours to complete the following sections of Bronze-Qiskit: basics of classical systems, basics of quantum systems, basic quantum operators, quantum correlation and quantum protocols, and quantum search algorithm.
The tutorial is a collection of Jupyter notebooks, and each notebook has a recorded lecture. We use python to solve the tasks and Qiskit library to code quantum programs. The participants should know at least one programming language, and they should make themselves familiar with Python before the workshop if they do not know Python. We will share the installation instructions and a few notebooks on basics of mathematics and participants should review them before the workshop starts.

Code of Conduct
Our event is dedicated to providing a harassment-free workshop experience for everyone, regardless of gender, gender identity and expression, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, ethnicity, religion (or lack thereof), or technology choices. We do not tolerate harassment of event participants in any form. Sexual language and imagery is not appropriate for any event venue, including talks, workshops, parties, Twitter and other online media. Event participants violating these rules may be sanctioned or expelled from the event.
We respect the minors (children under age 18) and we must make every effort to protect their rights. All private relationships, private communications (including social media channels), or sexual contacts with minors are prohibited.
The default communication channel between the organizers and participants is e-mail. Except filing the application form, the contact info of any attendee or participant cannot be requested by any person from organizer side (i.e., mentor, educator, speaker, organizer, sponsor, or volunteer). On the other hand, any person from organizer side may share his or her contact info with a participant who is not a minor, upon request by the participant.
A minor can access the emails of the main organizers on the event’s website. If a minor interested in working with a person from organizer side for scientific or pedagogical purpose, then he or she should read this document before contacting this person:
If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact the organizers immediately. You may also contact directly the members of the Ethics Committee of QWorld.
