2nd Plenary Meeting – 1-3 March 2023, CCQ New York City

We are pleased to announce the second plenary meeting of the International Quantum Tensor Network, which will be hosted by the Flatiron Institute’s Center for Computational Quantum Physics (CCQ) in New York City. This joint meeting with the Max Planck-New York Center for Nonequilibrium Quantum Phenomena will build upon our inaugural meeting at UCL to identify further developments and opportunities for tensor networks in quantum software, and to broaden the network to include new ideas and people from the broader quantum computation community.

The program will feature sessions on a range of topics, including applications of MPS beyond quantum simulation, open quantum systems and scaling Tensor Networks.

We offer up to £1000 towards travel expenses per attendee, and accommodation for Wednesday 1, Thursday 2 and Friday 3 March.*

Please note that registration closes on Sunday 10 December at 23.59 UK time.
