AQC2013 – Second International Workshop on Adiabatic Quantum Computing

AQC2013 – Second International Workshop on Adiabatic Quantum Computing

6th – 8th March 2013, Institute of Physics, London, UK

The Second International Workshop on Adiabatic Quantum Computing (AQC 2013), hosted and organised jointly by University College London and the Quantum Optics, Quantum Information and Quantum Control Group of the Institute of Physics, brings together researchers from different communities to explore this computational paradigm. The goal of the workshop is to initiate a cross-platform dialogue on the implementation challenges that must be overcome to realise useful adiabatic quantum computations in existing or near-term hardware. The workshop will have a special focus on AMO (Atomic, Molecular, and Optical) and solid-state technologies.

Registration and abstract submission are open at the workshop web-site:
