International Conference on Quantum Simulation 2014

SETI Institute, Mountain View, California

July 9 and 10, 2014

Welcome to the QS14 conference webpage.


QS14 is the first of what we hope will be a series of international conferences on the use of quantum computers and related machines to simulate physical phenomena. The highly multi-disciplinary conference series hopes to witness and document the transition from current devices and methodologies to practical quantum simulation with large, error-corrected universal quantum computers.
