Coordinator's Message

"The Mphasis Center for Quantum Information, Communication and Computing (MCQuICC) is focused on actualizing quantum technologies to industry. As part of our training and outreach activity we organize programs on quantum computing. We are partnering with IITM Pravartak Technologies Foundations, Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) and IBM Research India to deliver the winter school on advanced quantum computing. This school is a sequel to the ACM school on quantum computing which was organized in January 2022. The aim of the program is to train participants to use advanced IBM QISKIT modules on quantum machine learning, quantum finance and quantum simulation."
