QuSoft is celebrating 5 years of cutting edge research on quantum algorithms and software. In 2015 Harry Buhrman and Kareljan Schoutens, together with the UvA, CWI and VU, established the first Dutch research center for quantum software. And now, to celebrate QuSoft's lustrum, 'the institute is organising a full month event during which the research institute will look back to all the great (research) highlights of the past five years and also peak into the revolutionary future of quantum technology.
QuSoft’s lustrum covers the first three weeks of December, with Opening day on December 3, Science Week from December 7 to 11, and Business and Society Day on December 17. Opening Day will be presented by Jim Jansen, editor in chief of the popular science magazine New Scientist. And among the keynote speakers are renowned scientists such as Ignacio Cirac, Dorit Aharonov from the Hebrew University in Jerusalem and Gilles Brassard. Also Freeke Heijman from Quantum Delta NL will speak and Christian Schaffner is invited to talk about the new quantum innovation hub Quantum.Amsterdam.
QuSoft is much more than just science
Over the past five years QuSoft grew into the leading research center in its field. This was done by performing excellent scientific research but also by thinking ahead and starting innovative projects such as the Quantum Software Consortium (QSC), Woman in Quantum Development (WIQD) and QuSoft’s new innovation hub Quantum.Amsterdam (Q.A).Go to website
