BIG QC-AI-HPC Hackathon by QuantX is organized in collaboration with PRACE – Partnership for Advance Computing in Europe, GENCI – French research infrastructure in charge of implementing national policy in HPC, AI and QC, Boston Consulting Group, Le Lab Quantique – Paris-based think tank and network of bottom-up initiatives promoting quantum technologies, and under the high patronage of Neil Abroug, Head of the French National Quantum Strategy. The Hackathon aims to gather the leading players of the international Quantum Computing, HPC and AI ecosystems (e.g. academia, hardware and software providers, industrial companies, consulting groups, VC and PE investors, policymakers) to accelerate the transfer of competencies and advance hybrid QC-AI-HPC solutions and their practical application through the largest business-tech competition.

Join Microsoft Denmark and KPMG in exploring the world of quantum computing and its potential through use cases from KPMG Quantum Hub and insights from the Niels Bohr Institute.
The workshop includes a series of inspiring presentations about the potentials of quantum. In the second session of the workshop, participants are invited to try the Azure Quantum tool. Azure Quantum provides an advanced development environment to create quantum algorithms for multiple platforms at once while preserving flexibility to tune the same algorithms for specific systems. You can write your code once and run it with little to no change against multiple targets of the same family which allows you to focus your programming at the algorithm level.

The key stakeholders in the Nordic quantum technology eco-system have teamed up with IQT to launch a unique Nordic quantum technology conference. This year’s conference will be co-hosted by the Danish Quantum Community and the Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The conference will provide the participants with detailed insights into the rapidly expanding Nordic quantum ecosystem as well as an update on the state-of-the-art of quantum technologies in relation to use cases and applications. This conference will be an annual event with venues rotating between the Nordic countries. The first event, IQT Nordics 2023, will be held in Copenhagen, Denmark, from June 6th to 8th. In 2024, the conference will be held in Helsinki, Finland.
A link to register for the IQT Nordics 2023 conference in Copenhagen will be provided at a later date.
IQT Nordics 2023 will focus on applied quantum technologies and innovation. At the conference, you will hear about the Novo Nordisk Foundation’s Quantum Computing Project, an ambitious programme to develop a fault-tolerant quantum computer for life science applications. In addition, we will introduce you the NATO DIANA Centre for Quantum Technologies and its affiliated Accelerator and Test Centres. There will also be a comprehensive update on research and innovation activities in the Nordics, including a session on VC funding of quantum technology start-ups and spin-outs. Last, but not least, there will also be an opportunity to hear about the national quantum programmes and strategies in the Nordics.
The agenda will be announced at a later date.
The workshop will bring together scientists and engineers at all career stages in academia, industry, and startups to showcase advances in the emerging and rapidly growing field of quantum computing. Call for Abstracts – Deadline: March 15 – submit an abstract to present your work on research and applications in quantum computing or to share information about your quantum computing start-up.
More information about the agenda will be published at a later date.
