IBM Quantum Computing Event
IBM is organizing a one-day virtual event on May 6th – QC40 – to commemorate the 1981 MIT/IBM conference on Quantum Computing and the Physics of Computation. At QC40, IBM will take a close look at how far we have come in the field of quantum information science over the past 40 years and look into the future at how we will progress from what we have learned. The morning keynotes will be broadcast on the Qiskit Youtube channel. You can find more details about how to submit a talk and register for the conference at
