Nowadays, there are growing efforts in building quantum simulating/annealing machines and universal quantum computers. Quantum computation and simulation are believed to be able to greatly enhance our capability in future data processing ranging from understanding the microscopic physical world to solving practical optimization problems relevant to our daily life.

This KITS Conference on Quantum Computation and Simulation will focus on the recent trends and progress in the field, covering topics from a number of different approaches such as superconducting qubits, topological quantum circuits, etc. The aim of the conference is to explore the key problems from elementary single-qubit control/readout to truly functional quantum processors, from sophisticated implementations of quantum algorithms on scalable architectures to possible applications in quantum machine learning, quantum chemistry, etc.

With the effort of bringing together the experts in the field on different approaches, we hope that this KITS conference will stimulate fruitful discussions and bridging helpful collaborations. We cordially invite you to participate in this conference, to witness the emergent frontier technologies of quantum computation and simulation.
