Quantum Computing Hackathon for the Space Sector

Saïd Business School, University of Oxford, OX1 1HP

Fri March 15th, 2019 09:00 to Fri March 15th, 2019 18:00

NQIT and the Satellite Applications Catapult will host a Quantum Computing Hackathon for the Space Sector to be held on 15 March in Oxford, at Saïd Business School.

Having catalogued how quantum computers could be used to address space sector challenges across simulation and modelling, optimisation and earth observation data at a workshop in November, the hackathon will offer participants the opportunity to delve further into these challenges and apply their coding skills to propose solutions, as a member of one of our hackathon teams.

Participants do not need any prior experience of a hackathon, but will have a background in a relevant field (the space sector, mathematical or physical sciences or experience in quantum information processing). Participants will be drawn from academia, industry or government, all are welcome.

This is a free event, with lunch included, please note that we cannot cover your travel or living costs. This is a chance to work in a friendly collaborative atmosphere, to learn to program a quantum machine and to develop a road map for an industry-relevant application.

Please note

Space is limited and due to the popularity of the Quantum Computing Hackathon for the Space Sector, we are committed to ensuring that attendees represent a cross section of backgrounds and experience. The registration form will allow you give us a brief description of your background and knowledge and we will then confirm your attendance via email by Monday 4th March 2019 at the latest.
