Celebration QuSoft/ILLC Turing Chair
Professor Gilles Brassard performs as ‘Turing Chair for Quantum Software’ at ILLC UvA, and he is hosted at
QuSoft at NWO institute CWI. In honour of this chair, we are organising a symposium at Lab42 (ILLC, UvA) in L3.36 on 13 December 2022, from 13.00 – 16.00.
Gilles Brassard (Université de Montréal) was awarded the 2023 Breakthrough Prize in Fundamental Physics,
the world’s largest science prize, for foundational work in quantum information. He shares this prize with
Charles Bennett, David Deutsch and Peter Shor.
