The 4th QC/QCC on QCs

Joint WS on AI Applications to Univ. Education/Administration and QC/QCC-on-QCs: Quantum Algorithms 2017

The 4th OCU International WS on Quantum Chemistry/Quantum Chemical Calculations on Quantum Computers: Quantum Algorithms 2017

Takahara Memorial Hall, Osaka City University, Osaka 558-8585

Mar. 29 (Wed.) – 30 (Thu.), 2017

You are cordially invited to Joint WS on AI Applications to Univ. Education/Administration and QC/QCC-on-QCs: Quantum Algorithm 2017 (The 4th OCU International WS on Quantum Chemistry/Quantum Chemical Calculations on Quantum Computers: Quantum Algorithms 2017), Mar. 29-30, 2017 at Takahara Memorial Hall, Osaka City University.

The WS on QC/QCC-on-QCs: Quantum Algorithms has been held early spring every year since 2014 at OCU. The WS is not a scalable one, and only the limited number of scientists/researchers in this emerging field have been invited, giving their intensive lectures in the WS. The topics of each workshop will reflect emerging subjects and trends in the field of quantum algorithms and related fields from both the experimental and theoretical sides.

Aims of the 4th WS:

A particular aim of the workshop is to provide a forum/seminar for discussions of interdisciplinary issues on QCs and R&D of AI technology, emphasizing that we learn how AI technology has contributed to university education/administration in a wide sense or whether AI will be capable of improving university education or solving relevant issues/problems. The faculty and staff in various divisions of OCU are particularly encouraged to participate in the workshop.

Program:

The scientific program includes only intensive lectures of world-leading scientists for scientific core sessions. The 4th WS has a special session for Applications of AI Technology to University Education/Administration. The session will be also for non-specialists in the field and those who are interested in the issue.
