The Day of Quantum Algorithms!
22 September 2020
Part of the Quantum Week of Fun
COVID-19 IS NOT FUN.
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic,
and the uncertainty about travel and public gatherings,
we have made the difficult decision to make QuAlg20 a virtual event.

About the workshop
The Quantum Algorithms workshop aims to bring together leading researchers working on a
range of topics from fundamental questions on quantum algorithms to practical applications
for near term quantum computing. A range of invited and contributed talks will highlight recent
novel results in the field to motivate discussions on open questions and future directions on the
computational reach of quantum algorithms.
The scope of the workshop includes, but is not limited to, current
hot topics in the field:
- Quantum algorithms for optimisation and machine learning
- Quantum random walks, oracular and algebraic algorithms
- Experimental implementations of algorithms on small-scale quantum computers
- Quantum advantage proposals and explorations of quantum speed-ups
- Limitations and computational power of hybrid quantum-classical algorithms
- Circuit complexity
- Protocols for characterisation and mitigation of errors in quantum devices
- Verification and benchmarking of quantum computations
- Aram Harrow, Center for Theoretical Physics, Massachusetts Institute of Technology
- Laura Mančinska, QMATH, Department of Mathematical Sciences, University of Copenhagen,

Instructions for authors
The format of the Quantum Algorithms day will include invited
speakers and contributed talks. We welcome contributions from all
branches of physics, mathematics, computer science that are relevant
to the main topic of the workshop. The workshop has no formal
proceedings. Authors are invited to submit an abstract or a paper,
with no restrictions on the format.
Please submit your papers through EasyChair:
Registration will be handled through
the Quantum Week of Fun.
