Workshop 7-11.03.2022


We are happy to announce our next QBronze workshop, this time organized jointly by QPoland and QIreland! Join us in the introductory workshop “Quantum Computing and Programming” and learn the basics of quantum computing and how to write simple quantum programs by using Qiskit.


We are inviting everyone wishing to learn more about quantum computers. During the workshop, we will use the introductory tutorial Bronze-Qiskit by QWorld. The tutorial will be in English. We will use a dedicated Discord server to conduct the workshop and we will have daily Zoom meetings.

Participants are expected to follow the workshop materials, watch the lecture videos and complete the tasks on their own. The workshop will be held during 5 days with about 20 hours of commitment from the participants. On-line mentoring will be provided for participants during the times specified in the schedule below. We will also use Canvas for homework tracking.


The participants completing the workshop (including homework) successfully will receive a diploma!


Workshop Agenda:


Day 1 | Monday 7 March, 16:00 – 17:30 UTC (17:00 – 18:30 CET)

Introduction to quantum computing, One Bit, Coin Flipping, Coin Flipping Game, Probabilistic States, Probabilistic Operators, Two Probabilistic Bits

Day 2 | Tuesday 8 March, 16:00 – 17:30 UTC (17:00 – 18:30 CET)

Quantum Coin Flipping, First Quantum Programs with Qiskit, Hadamard Operator, One Qubit, Quantum State, Superposition and Measurement, Visualization of a (Real-Valued) Qubit

Day 3 | Wednesday 9 March, 16:00 – 17:30 UTC (17:00 – 18:30 CET)

Operations on the Unit Circle, Rotations, Reflections, Quantum Tomography, Two Qubits, Phase Kickback

Day 4 | Thursday 10 March, 16:00 – 17:30 UTC (17:00 – 18:30 CET)

Entanglement and Superdense Coding, Quantum Teleportation, Multiple Control Constructions

Day 5 | Friday 11 March, 16:00 – 17:30 UTC (17:00 – 18:30 CET)

Inversion About the Mean, Grover’s Search: One Qubit Representation, Grover’s Search: Implementation


The participants are expected to work individually for at least 16 hours to complete the following sections of Bronze (https://gitlab.com/qworld/bronze-qiskit): basics of classical systems, basics of quantum systems, basic quantum operators, quantum correlation and quantum protocols, and quantum search algorithm.

The tutorial is a collection of Jupyter notebooks, and each notebook has a recorded lecture. We use python to solve the tasks and Qiskit library to code quantum programs. The participants should know at least one programming language, and they should make themselves familiar with Python before the workshop if they do not know Python. We will share the installation instructions and a few notebooks on the basics of mathematics and participants should review them before the workshop starts.
