The Advanced Simulations of Quantum Computations is a 2-day workshop on September 17-18, 2023 from 10:00 AM – 4:30 PM PDT. 

Abstract: As quantum computing hardware is steadily evolving towards the quantum advantage regime, classical simulation of quantum circuits is becoming more and more challenging, yet crucial for the verification and validation of the new hardware and algorithms. In recent years, we observed fast progress in new advanced techniques enabling more efficient simulations of rather large quantum circuits. Importantly, these techniques and algorithms were also able to take better advantage of modern classical high-performance computing platforms based on the heterogeneous accelerated node architectures. This workshop will bring together participants from the national labs, academia, industry and open-source software community to share recent results in algorithms and software for large-scale quantum circuit and analog simulations across a broad range of methods, covering state-vector, tensor network, graphical model, stabilizer, and pulse-level simulations. We seek to provide an open platform for state-of-the-art development efforts, exchanging ideas and best practices, and fostering research collaboration in an attempt to stimulate the formation of an inclusive research community focused around this topic.


Target Audience: The workshop will be of interest to a broad research community from national labs, academia, and industry who deal with all aspects of quantum simulation and quantum algorithm development. The speakers will represent all mentioned research sectors in a balanced way. We expect workshop attendees with diverse backgrounds ranging from general computer science especially, scientific and high-performance computing, to quantum information science.
