Lecture: Quantum Computers & Simulators
The Copenhagen Bioscience Lectures is a series of open lectures for all researchers and other interested . Every 4 weeks, on Thursday evenings, you are invited for lectures on themes with a general interest for the Novo Nordisk Foundation Research Centers and science researchers in general. Often there will be a cross-disciplinary focus. Save the date and remember to register.Read more
Many research and industry applications are currently contemplating how to achieve an advantage from using quantum computers and quantum simulators. Through exploitation and control of quantum systems, quantum computing has the potential to solve complex problems exponentially faster, and with significantly less energy consumption, than with classical computing. The main premise is the expectation of a more accurate simulation of the chemical and physical processes of quantum nature in biological objects and new algorithms for prediction and processing of data. This is of specific interest for biological systems, where accurate modelling of quantum phenomena in a complex environment is necessary for an adequate representation, for example, of enzymatic catalytic reactions, light harvesting, and molecular dynamics, for instance protein folding or binding of a drug. Other proposed applications range from genomics classification and optimisation, materials science, logistics and optimization, encryption and information security, and artificial intelligence. The lectures will give an overview of the significant progress that has been made with the development of quantum simulators as well as noisy intermediate-scale quantum (NISQ) computers. It will also be discussed what problems a more generally applicable fault-tolerant quantum computer could help solving, which is the main mission of the recently announced NNF Quantum Computing Programme.
Registration is completely free of charge, but mandatory.

The Lectures is a series of open lectures for all researchers and others interested in bioscience, biotechnology and health. Every 4 weeks, normally on Thursday evenings, you are invited for lectures on themes with a general interest for the Novo Nordisk Foundation Research Centers and bioscience researchers in general. Often there will be a cross-disciplinary focus.
This will be a hybrid lecture with the possibility of attending both virtually and physically. Please note that we have a limited capacity for how many we allow to participate physically, and seats are allocated on a first come, first served basis.
Yes. We take oral questions from physical audience and written questions from virtual participants.
You are very welcome to join the ‘Novo Nordisk Foundation Science Cluster’s Linkedin and/or Facebook group. There you will find information about upcoming lectures, and much more.
If you arrive by car, you can park for free in front or at the side of Tuborg Havnevej 19. If that is full, there is 3 hours free parking in the parking to the Waterfront shopping mall at the end of the road. Public transport by train to Hellerup station, and/or bus (1A, 21, 166), nearest by bus stop is Tuborg Boulevard.

Please help us respecting our speakers, as well as keeping track of the numbers and optimize lecture and catering to the audience by cancelling as soon as you know that you exceptionally will not be able to make it. You can either cancel through Conference Manager or send an email to Johan Jansen at email@example.com
Yes, just log in to Conference Manager. Please use this option also in the unlikely event that you need to cancel your registration.
No, you do not have to bring your ticket, but registration is mandatory for participation. You will find a tag with your name on it when you arrive.
