QBronze42 | Quantum Computing and Programming | November 16-20, 2020

We are organizing many QBronze workshops as a part of QWorldChallenge 2020 Autumn Edition.

We are inviting high school students, university and graduate students, researchers, and working people to learn the basics of quantum computing and how to write simple quantum programs.

The workshop will be held online in Romania between November 16 and 20 and there is no registration fee. During the workshop, we will use the introductory tutorial Bronze by QWorld. Participants are required to know English to follow our tutorial but the mentors will speak both in English and Romanian. We will use the Discord to conduct the workshop and we will have daily Zoom meetings. Daily homework will be assigned to the participants to check their progress

The participants completing the workshop successfully will receive a diploma.

Participants will be watching the lecture videos and completing the tasks on their own. Mentor support will be provided according to the following schedule for participants to ask their questions and share their progress with the mentors, as well as daily online Zoom meetings.

  • Saturday & Sunday (Nov 14-15): Installation support in Discord
  • 14:00-20:00, Monday to Friday (Nov 16-20)

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. We will share the installation instructions and a few notebooks on basics of mathematics and participants should review them before the workshop starts.
