Scientific Quantum Computing and Simulation on Near-Term Devices: Quantum Simulations of Strongly Correlated Systems

Organizers: Joseph Carlson (LANL), Gaute Hagen (ORNL), Crystal Noel (Duke), Andrew Sornborger (LANL) and David Weld (UCSB).  Jointly sponsored with the Quantum Science Center (QCS) and IQuS.

This workshop will highlight recent advances in quantum computing promising near-term impact on our understanding of strongly-correlated quantum systems.  The format includes significant discussion time to develop and disseminate new results and ideas from a variety of technologies. We will highlight the impact of atomic and molecular experiments and digital quantum computers on a diverse array of problems in nuclear, AMO, and condensed matter physics.

The workshop focuses on high-impact early applications in theory and experiment. Presentations of recent advances together with discussions will encourage development of emulators and algorithms that can impact several fields of science.  The focus will be on the intersection of algorithms, emulations, and universal gate-based quantum computers to enable rapid progress on important problems.

Due to Covid and the safety of our community being of paramount concern, we have decided to hold a virtual workshop during this time period, and are planning for an in-person workshop sometime during early 2022.
