This meeting will bring together a small group of experts in high energy physics and quantum computing. The focus is to identify problems and algorithms that are expected to be feasible on quantum computing systems in the near term.
In particular, we hope to:
- discuss how different disciplines have cast their problems of interest into a form amenable to quantum computing
- discuss the complexity of problems that have been addressed with state-of-the art quantum architectures
- learn how quantum computing ties into the HEP computing model, and how existing code frameworks, languages and toolkits could be leveraged for HEP computing
- understand how current challenges in HEP computing / calculations (machine learning, dynamics of strongly interacting field theories and scattering amplitudes,experimental event reconstruction bottlenecks) could benefit from quantum algorithms and architectures, and how HEP could provide benchmark problems for quantum computers.
