QBronze53 | Quantum Computing and Programming | February 20-21 & 27-28, 2021

We are happy to announce the first QBronze workshop in Greece! The entangling workshop for QGreece will take place on two consecutive weekends at the end of February. Join us in 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 working people. During the workshop, we will use the introductory tutorial Bronze by QWorld. We will use the Discord to conduct the workshop and we will have daily Zoom meetings.
Jupyter notebooks and Zoom lectures will be in English, except the last lecture by Ioannis Theodonis about “Quantum Cryptography with BB84 Quantum Key Distribution protocol” which will be in Greek. Support by mentors on the Discord will be given in Greek, but English is also an option.

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 for participants to ask their questions and share their progress with mentors. The workshop will be held over 4 days on two consecutive weekends, with a total of 12 hours of training.

First Weekend | 20-21.02.2021
Saturday: 09:30 – 18.00 (GMT+2)
Sunday: 09:30 – 18.00 (GMT+2)

Second Weekend | 27-28.02.2021
Saturday: 09:30 – 18.00 (GMT+2)
Sunday: 09:30 – 18.00 (GMT+2)

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.


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.
