General Lab Information

The Co-design Center for Quantum Advantage (C2QA) led by Brookhaven National Laboratory is pleased to offer a virtual workshop to introduce advanced undergraduate students, beginning graduate students, postdocs, and other quantum practitioners to the exciting world of quantum information science (QIS). Dimitri Kharzeev and Tzu-Chieh Wei, both C2QA Principal Investigators and Professors at Stony Brook University, have organized a program in which QIS experts discuss quantum error mitigation through a series of lectures and seminars, and office-hour discussions.

Attendees will have the opportunity to learn about the basics of quantum computing and the current effort to improve the performance of near-term devices before future fault-tolerant quantum computing. The focus of this workshop is on various techniques of error mitigation and suppression in various elements of quantum computing and how these have enabled and will further improve noisy quantum devices to produce useful and encouraging outcomes for computation and simulations.

The workshop is free and open to the public. It will run each day from 11 a.m. — 2:30 p.m. ET.

NOTE: This workshop does not offer continuing profession education (CPE) credit, a certificate, or stipend.
