QBronze38 | Quantum Computing and Programming | November 2-6, 2020
We, as QCousins, are organizing many QBronze workshops as a part of QWorldChallenge 2020 Autumn Edition.
QPakistan is inviting university and graduate students to learn the basics of quantum computing and how to write simple quantum programs.
The workshop will be held online in Pakistan between 6:30pm and 9:30pm from November 2 and 6, and there is no registration fee. During the workshop, we will use the introductory tutorial Bronze by QWorld. The event will be in English. We will use the Discord to conduct the workshop and we will have daily Zoom meetings. An informal installation and introduction session will occur on Sunday, November 1.
Each session will start with a 40 minute talk from a faculty member relevant to Bronze topics followed be a Q&A session. Participants will then break away to work independently on the programming exercises. Mentors will be available to answer queries. Each session will end with a review of the progress and questions of the day.
Diplomas will be awarded based on satisfactory evidence of completion of the programming exercises.
The participants are expected to work individually at least 16 hours to complete the following sections of Bronze: 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.
The applications are closed.
You can apply for Global Quantum Programming Workshop on November 23-28, 2020.
Organizers and workshop leads: Muhammad Faryad, Abdullah Khalid, Aeysha Khalique, and Jibran Rashid
QMentors: Rumlah Amer, Ammar Ali Hakeem, and Syed Waqar Ahmed
