The need to describe data with metadata is well understood: the problem is how best to do it. There are many answers to that question which in itself creates a further problem: with so many standards to choose from, which one should I use to describe my data? With so many is use, which one(s) should I build my application to look for?

It is our pleasure to invite you to the symposium ‘Quantum Software in the Netherlands’. This event is hosted and organized by QuSoft, a joint research institute for quantum software, founded by CWI, UvA and VU. With the recent breakthroughs in hardware development, for many it is no longer a question of if but when the quantum computer will come.
