QBronze118 | Quantum Computing and Programming Workshop in Libya

QBronze118 | Quantum Computing and Programming Workshop, October 29-31 & November 1-2, 2023

We are pleased to announce the second QBronze workshop, which will be conducted on-site at the University of Tripoli! 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 are inviting high school students, university and graduate students, researchers, professors, and industrial people from Libya. During the workshop, we will use the introductory tutorial Bronze-Qiskit by QWorld. We will use Discord to communicate with each other and conduct the workshop in the University of Tripoli. Jupyter notebooks, lectures, and mentoring will be in Arabic.

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 75 pts in total, will earn their diplomas!

Participants will be attending the lecture 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 6 days, with a total of 18 hours of training.

  • Topics covered:
    • Python introduction | QBronze environment installation tutorial.
    • One Bit | Coin Flipping | Coin Flipping Game | Probabilistic States | Probabilistic Operators | Two Probabilistic Bits

Day 2 | Monday 30 October (9:00 – 12:00 PM EET)

  • A short summary of the previous day notebooks and an optional Q&A session
  • Topics covered:
    • Quantum Coin Flipping | First Quantum Programs with Qiskit | Hadamard Operator | One Qubit | Quantum State | Superposition and Measurement | Visualization of a (Real-Valued) Qubit.

Day 3 | Tuesday 31 October (9:00 – 12:00 PM EET)

  • A short summary of the previous day notebooks and an optional Q&A session.
  • Topics covered:
    • Operations on the Unit Circle | Rotations | Reflections | Quantum Tomography | Two Qubits | Phase Kickback.

Day 4 | Wednesday 1 November (9:00 – 12:00 PM EET)

  • A short summary of the previous day notebooks and an optional Q&A session.
  • Topics covered:
    • Entanglement and Superdense Coding | Quantum Teleportation | Multiple Control Constructions.

Day 5 | Thursday 2 November (9:00 – 12:00 PM EET)

  • A short summary of the previous day notebooks and an optional Q&A session.
  • Topics covered:
    • Inversion About the Mean | Grover’s Search: One Qubit Representation | Grover’s Search: Implementation.

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.
