PQC 2019

The Perspectives on Quantum Computing: NISQ and beyond (PQC 2019) conference will take place on Friday 29 November, in the historical building of “La Sorbonne”  (Amphitheater Liard) in Paris 05.

The aim of the conference is to present current achievements of NISQ  (Noisy Intermediate-Scale Quantum) computers, including quantum supremacy,  to a knowledgeable but non-expert audience. Companies interested in possible applications are welcome, as well as academic researchers. The conference is expected to be a forum for fruitful interactions. 

There will be introductory talks  on recent results, e.g. by  Google and IBM,  as well as specific use-cases presented by companies. These issues are also important within the ongoing European Quantum Technology flagship, and the upcoming French Great Challenge on quantum technologies.

The conference is organized jointly by the French network SIRTEQ (Science and Engineering in Ile de France for Quantum Technologies) , the Rectorat de Paris. and the DRRT Ile-de-France
