This is an exciting time to be studying quantum algorithms. As the technological challenges of building a quantum computer continue to be met there is still much to learn about the power of quantum computing. Which problems could a quantum computer solve faster than a classical device? and which problems remain hard? What will be the killer application that incentives industrial investment?
Continuing the popular series of Heilbronn quantum algorithm meetings, we showcase recent highlights in the field. We have two days (13th and 14th April 2015) of outstanding speakers invited from around the world to talk about their recent work. As in previous meetings (November 2013 and April 2013), we expect the discussions to be lively and informative!

Remaining titles TBC
There is no conference fee but we do ask that people register so we can provide catering for everyone.
We are also able to offer travel support to UK based PhD students who are unable to find funding from their home institutions (Please email Fran Blake at firstname.lastname@example.org if you wish to apply for travel support).
This event is supported by the Heilbronn Institute and EPSRC.
