Though the disruptive potential of Quantum Information Science has been known for over 20 years, it has been in a nascent state with a number of academic, industrial and government groups striving to understand the basic physics, and to build and control many-qubit systems. Now we are approaching a tipping point where the realization of practical QIS systems is imminent. This workshop brings together a broad community of scientists working in the field to discuss the near future of QIS, including the physical implementations of quantum computers, the most interesting directions of QIS and the challenging fundamental and applied problems of quantum science that are posed by QIS as well as those where QIS may lead to breakthroughs addressing the fundamental challenges in building the next generation systems, and in utilizing these systems to develop applications.
The Quantum Information Science workshop will be held at MSU in early October (9/30-10/3/2018). The workshop is being organized by Mark Dykman, Norman Birge, Phil Duxbury and Johannes Pollanen.
