IEEE Quantum Week 2021 Workshop: Quantum Computing for High-Energy Physics

Andrea Delgado (Oak Ridge National Laboratory), Jean-Roch Vlimant (California Institute of Technology (US)), Sofia Vallecorsa (CERN)

IEEE Quantum Week is hosting several workshops discussing topics in quantum research, practice, education, and applications.

The Quantum Computing for High-Energy Physics workshops aims at hosting keynote speakers to present the overviews at the intersection of Quantum Computing and High-Energy Physics. A mix of contributed talks and invited speakers will present on-going work and state-of-the-art applications of quantum computing for challenges in data processing in HEP.

Registration to the event is fully handled on the IEEE site and all material will the managed in the current indico.

Proceedings for contributions to this workshop will be handled through the IEEE Xplore platform.

Connection details are provided on the conference platform in the tab of the workshop schedule
