Quantum computing is a new computational model for information processing based on quantum mechanics. By taking advantage of quantum effects such as superposition and entanglement, quantum computer promise advantages for a series of important problems such as algorithm complexity, confidential communication, quantum system simulation, large data processing and artificial intelligence. Currently a huge amount of money is invested domestically and internationally to build experimental quantum computer critical period. There is no doubt that once the quantum computing hardware is successfully manufactured, this will mark the second quantum revolution (the first quantum revolution is the discovery and establishment of quantum mechanics).
How to meet this new information technology revolution is a major challenge for computer science as well as related disciplines and industry. We co-organise a three-week Quantum Computing and Quantum Information Processing (QCQIP) Program at the Academy of Mathematics and Systems Science (AMSS, the top research institution in mathematics in China) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences from 1 to 21 Nov 2017, Beijing. This is regarded as a major research activity of UTS-AMSS joint lab on QCQIP, initiated in August 2012. In particular, the AMSS-UTS joint Annual Workshop on Quantum Computing and Quantum Information Processing (QCQIP2017), will be held from November 12-14, 2017. The date of 12 November 2017 has been chosen to celebrate 81 years since the publication of Turing’s seminal paper on computability in 1936:
