QBronze115 | Quantum Computing and Programming Workshop, September 25-29, 2023
We are pleased to announce the first QBronze Quantum Programming Workshop in Nepal! Join us for the introductory workshop “Quantum Computing and Programming” and learn the basics of quantum computing and how to write simple quantum programs.
We invite highschool students, university students and graduates, researchers, professors, and industry experts in the region. We will use introductory tutorials called Bronze-Qiskit by QWorld. Discord will be our primary mode of communication and the workshop will be conducted through Zoom. Jupyter notebooks, Zoom lectures, and mentoring sessions will be conducted in English language.
We will assign daily problem sets via Qworld’s Canvas (five problemsets, worth 100 pts). The participants who successfully complete themwith at least 50% per problem set and an average score of 75 pts in totalwill be awarded their diplomas!
This course is self-paced and participants may watch lecture videos and complete the tasks by themselves. Mentoring support will be available throughout the workshop. The workshop will span over 5 days.

Quantum Application + Career prospects + Research mentorship
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.
This tutorial is a collection of Jupyter notebooks, and each notebook has a pre-recorded lecture. We will Python to solve the tasks and Qiskit library to code quantum programs.
The participants should have basic knowledge of at least one programming language, and they should make themselves familiar with Python before the workshop. We will share the installation instructions and a practice notebooks on basics of mathematics.
