Details and Application

C2QA QIS 102: Applied Quantum Computing Summer School

Application period is closed

Brookhaven National Laboratory offers a three-week virtual workshop to introduce university faculty to the exciting world of quantum information science (QIS), in a “Train-the-Trainer” style program. Led by David Biersach, through a series of demonstrations and hands-on programming labs, academics will learn how quantum algorithms, when applied to specific problem domains, can outperform classical computers. Attendees will learn IBM Qiskit, a world-class software package for working with quantum computers at the level of pulses, circuits, and application modules. Attendees will download and install the 100% open-source courseware and development tools on their personal computers, which they will use during the program.

Accepted academics will be provided with a weekly stipend and those who successfully complete the workshop will be presented with a certificate from Brookhaven National Laboratory attesting to their skills in Applied Quantum Computing.

The workshop will run each day, Monday – Friday, for three weeks from June 10 – 28, 2024 from 10:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. ET (two 1-hour breaks) and be conducted entirely via Zoom web conferencing.
