This workshop will focus on applications of quantum computing technologies, algorithms, and theoretical developments of interest to the High Energy Physics community. Fermilab’s Theory Department and Scientific Computing Division are particularly interested in developing collaborations and working groups to target problems related to:
The workshop will include comprehensive hands on tutorials from Google and demonstrations from other technology industry partners.
This workshop builds on our past November workshop, “Near-term Applications of Quantum Computing” also held at Fermilab, and we hope these two workshops will form the groundwork for a white paper on Quantum Science in HEP.

The quantum laws governing atoms and other tiny objects seem
to defy common sense, and information encoded in quantum systems has
weird properties that baffle our feeble human minds. John Preskill will
explain why he loves quantum entanglement, the elusive feature making
quantum information fundamentally different from information in the
macroscopic world. By exploiting quantum entanglement, quantum computers
should be able to solve otherwise intractable problems, with
far-reaching applications to cryptology, materials, and fundamental
physical science. Preskill is less weird than a quantum computer, and
easier to understand.
