About the Conference

Adiabatic Quantum Computing (AQC) 2023 will be held in ABQ on June 19 - June 23.

The twelfth International Conference, AQC 2023, will bring together researchers from different communities to explore this computational paradigm and related topics.

The goal of the conference is to promote a dialogue on the open theoretical questions and experimental challenges that must be addressed to realize practically useful adiabatic quantum computing and quantum annealing in existing and near-term hardware.
