QC40 is a one-day virtual event that will celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Physics of Computation Conference which was jointly organized by MIT and IBM, and held at the MIT campus (Endicott House) in 1981.
The conference was a defining moment in the history of quantum computation. At QC40, we will take a close look at the changes in quantum computing over the past 40 years, with a panel discussion and keynote addresses by attendees from the original conference and pioneers in the field of quantum computing.
The day will also feature academic talks highlighting recent work in quantum information science (more details under “What is QC40?”). The top outstanding talk submissions will be recognized with up to $5,000 grants as a way to contribute to future research.
Virtual event open to the public
