Noisy Intermediate-Scale Quantum Systems: Advances and Applications

Coordinators: Aram Harrow, Liang Jiang, and Vedika Khemani

The goal of this conference is to explore connections between many-body quantum dynamics, quantum complexity theory, and the use and validation of noisy, intermediate-scale quantum (NISQ) devices. Key topic areas for this conference include (i) novel dynamical regimes and phases in quantum circuits, (ii) quantum simulation, error mitigation, and validation of NISQ devices, and (iii) quantum optimization algorithms and quantum many-body physics. The conference will provide a key opportunity for a targeted evaluation of productive areas for cross-collaboration for scientists in quantum information science, computer science, and condensed-matter physics.
