Symposium Quantum Software in the Netherlands

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.

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. But when it comes, what will humanity do with it? The scientific field of quantum software is working on answers to this question. Historically, the Netherlands play an important role in this multidisciplinary field. The symposium will showcase a sample of the diverse topics that quantum software researchers from academia and industry in the Netherlands are working on.  

Just as the classical transistor needed software to be of use as a computer, quantum bits need quantum software to be of use as quantum computers. By organizing this event, QuSoft aims to support and stimulate the development of the Dutch quantum software ecosystem.
