QBronze82 | Quantum Computing and Programming Workshop | April 9-10 & 16-17, 2022
We are happy to announce our QBronze workshop organized by QWorld in Montenegro. This time the event will be held in a stationary mode, in cooperation with Faculty for Information Technologies, Mediterranean University, Podgorica, Montenegro. Join us in the introductory workshop “Quantum Computing and Programming”. Learn the basics of quantum computing and how to write simple quantum programs. The quantum workshop in Montenegro is part of QSpring2022 project!
We are inviting everyone wishing to learn more about quantum computers. During the workshop, we will use the introductory tutorial Bronze-Qiskit by QWorld. The educational materials are in English, but mentoring and lectures will be available in Montenegrin.
Participants are expected to follow the workshop materials, join the lectures and complete the material on their own. The workshop will be held during 4 days with approximately 18 hours of training.
We will share homework via QWorld Canvas (five homework, in total 100 pts). The participants who complete them all successfully (at least 50% from each) with at least 70 pts in total, will earn their diplomas!
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.

Except filing the application form, the contact info of any attendee or participant cannot be requested by any person from organizer side (i.e., mentor, educator, speaker, organizer, sponsor, or volunteer). On the other hand, any person from organizer side may share his or her contact info with a participant who is not a minor, upon request by the participant.
A minor can access the emails of the main organizers on the event’s website. If a minor interested in working with a person from organizer side for scientific or pedagogical purpose, then he or she should read this document before contacting this person:
If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact the organizers immediately. You may also contact directly the members of the Ethics Committee of QWorld.
