On June 4th 2021, the fifth QSC General Assembly will take place on Quantum Networks. This assembly will take place online, so participants from all over the world with an interest in quantum networks are invited to participate. The keynote speaker will be David Peréz-García, Universidad Complutense de Madrid.
Quantum Training Days: Quantum communication.
The lectures will be given by David Elkouss and Johannes Borregaard who together will cover both implementation and applications of quantum networks.
Every year, the Dutch Royal Mathematical Society (KWG) invites six PhD candidates to present their research at the Dutch Mathematical Congress (NMC). A jury of mathematicians from various fields chooses a winner. The jury, chaired by Prof. Frank Redig, selected among others QSC postdoc Yfke Dulek (UvA, QuSoft).
In the second session of "What's cooking?" on Tuesday 11 May 16.00-17.00 NMC (Dutch Mathematical Congres) will give an update on the developments at Platform Wiskunde Nederland, the upcoming research visitation, and the plans and activities of Mastermath and Indagationes.
The Pythagoras prize for the best high school final project in mathematics is annually awarded by Pythagoras. On Friday April 23rd from 15.30-17.00 the three nominated candidates will present their final project.
Two days with keynote lectures and parallel sessions online. There will be a session on April 6, 11:00–12:30, representing the Quantum Software Consortium:
The keynote lectures will be delivered by
The Brouwer Medal will be awarded to David John Aldous (University of California, Berkeley).
The Beeger lecture will be given by David Harvey (UNSW, Sydney).
Two other events are still being planned within the the NMC 2021 Series: A “What’s Cooking” session with updates from the Platform Wiskunde Nederland (PWN), the PWN Committee Research, and European Women in Mathematics; and the “Docentendag”. The NMC is being made possible thanks to generous financial support from NWO domain Science, obtained via PWN.
On April 1st, the QSC PhD students (Guus Avis, Sebastian de Bone, Fenglei Gu, Sophie Hermans) from QuTech/TU Delft organise a third edition of the Junior Day for all junior researchers in quantum computing.
UNESCO has declared 14 March, also known as Pi Day, as the International Day of Mathematics. In the second edition of the International Day of Mathematics on March 14, 2021, we will celebrate Mathematics for a Better World. We are happy to invite you to our official celebration, organised by EWM-NL taking place online in the
afternoon of March 15th.
On March 11th from 16.00-18.00h all PhD students, postdocs, academic staff and master students in the final stage of their studies are invited to have speed dates with companies like VORTech, Marin, IMC, Optiver, CMQ and Sioux
Technologies during the NMC Event Speed Dating with Industry.
Chair: Barry Koren

It has been claimed that Quantum computers have crossed the supremacy barrier , solving a problem intractable
on classical computers in any reasonable amount of time. However, the problem in question, random quantum circuit simulation,
is of little interest to the wider world.
Physics@Veldhoven 2021 gaat digitaal en vindt plaats op 18, 19 en 20 januari 2021.
Dit jaar is het thema 'the Magic of Physics'. Dit congres omspant alle aspecten van de natuurkunde en is het grootste in zijn soort in Nederland. Traditioneel wordt jonge onderzoekers de kans gegeven zichzelf en hun werk te presenteren naast vermaarde namen uit de Nederlandse en internationale natuurkundewereld.
