The Jülich Supercomputing Centre will host the summer school on Quantum Information Processing – Applications on Gate-based an Annealing Systems” from August 28 to September 01, 2023. The school focuses on hands-on experiences in developing and implementing algorithms on both gate-based devices and quantum annealers. The hands-on sessions will be accompanied by several lectures covering basic concepts of gate-based and annealing systems, the design and implementation of use-cases, and big-picture lectures, all given by experts from the field.

Topics: Introduction to gate-based quantum computing, introduction to quantum annealing, formulating QUBO problems, Ising Hamiltonians, Variational Quantum Eigensolvers, Quantum Approximate Optimization Algorithm, simulation of quantum systems, classical vs quantum optimization

For the hands-on sessions, remote-participants must organize access to quantum annealing and gate-based ressources themelves. We suggest to use D-Wave Leap and Qiskit to be compatible with the exercises and solutions provided. We will further provide an online platform with a chat-function and file exchange to enable remote-participants to discuss and exchange results.
