Attend the Virtual AQC 2021 This Week!

The virtual Adiabatic Quantum Computing Conference 2021 (AQC 2021) is happening now. Registration is free! Additionally, the talks are being recorded and are currently available to view. 

Register now!

Conference details:

Adiabatic Quantum Computing (AQC) and Quantum Annealing are computational methods that can be used to solve combinatorial optimization and related problems including sampling and quantum simulation. In addition to the existing commercial hardware, several efforts are now underway to manufacture processors that implement these strategies.

The tenth International Conference, AQC 2021, brings together researchers from different communities to explore this computational paradigm and related topics. The goal of the conference is to promote a dialogue on the challenges that must be overcome to realize practically useful quantum annealing in existing and near-term hardware.
