QBronze105 | Quantum Computing and Programming Workshop, February 16-18, 2023
We are pleased to announce the QBronze quantum programming workshop in Slovenia. This is an onsite workshop in the beautiful city of Koper, where we were invited by Harpha Sea Ltd. The lecturing facilities belong to FAMNINT UPR (Faculty of Mathematics, Natural Sciences and Information Sciences – University of Primorska). During the quantum programming workshop, we will use the introductory tutorial Bronze-Qiskit by QWorld. Materials 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!
Lecturer support will be provided for participants to ask their questions and share their progress. The workshop will be held over 3 days, with a total of 20 hours of training.
Day 1 | February 16 (09:00 – 17:00 PM, GMT+1)
- Basic concepts of bits, and IBM’s tool Qiskit to simulate quantum circuits/programs
- Quantum bits, how they can be visualized, superposition, measurement and some examples of quantum operations on qubits.
- Quantum tomography, two-qubit systems and some common operations used in quantum algorithms.
Day 2 | February 17 (09:00 – 17:00 PM, GMT+1)
- The concept of entanglement and its use in the transmission of quantum information via superdense coding and quantum teleportation.
- Basic concepts for the implementation of one of the first quantum algorithms that outperformed its classical counterpart: Grover’s Search Algorithm.
- Short discussion about the covered topics and the current state of selected areas in quantum computing.
Day 3 | February 18 (09:00 – 17:00 PM, GMT+1)
- Non-obligatory chat / discussion
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.
Application for our quantum programming workshop
Thanks for your interest. We’ve reached our capacity, so the application forms are closed.
There will be new Bronze-Qiskit workshops in the upcoming months to apply for.

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.
