Scientific meeting

Location

Kavli Royal Society Centre, Chicheley Hall, Newport Pagnell, Buckinghamshire, MK16 9JJ

Overview

Theo Murphy international scientific meeting organised by Dr Vivien Kendon, Sir Peter Knight FRS and Professor Andrew Daley.

Developing experiments capable of useful simulations of quantum systems and computation using native Hamiltonians needs highly optimised hardware and software, to extract the best performance from state-of-the-art quantum engineering. This meeting brings together experts from different research areas to share ideas and further develop UK strength in this important future quantum technology.

The schedule of talks and speaker biographies are available below. Speaker abstracts will be available closer to the meeting. Recorded audio of the presentations will be available on this page after the meeting has taken place.

Poster session

There will be a poster session at 16:15 on Wednesday 2 October 2019. If you would like to apply to present a poster please submit your title, proposed abstract (not more than 200 words and in third person), author list, name of the proposed presenter and authors' institutions to the Scientific Programmes team no later than Wednesday 28 August 2019. Please include the text "Quantum computing: poster abstract" in the subject heading. Please note that places are limited and are selected at the scientific organisers' discretion. Poster abstracts will only be considered if the presenter is registered to attend the meeting.
