The "Quantum Information for Quantum Chemistry" workshop will be hosted at The Banff International Research Station.

The development and use of quantum computers for chemical applications has potentially revolutionary impact opportunities to change the way computing is done in future generations. The workshop will bring together leading scientists from the fields of quantum information, quantum computing and quantum chemistry to exchange ideas and discuss ways to develop quantum algorithms and experimental realization and to push forward the quantum information revolution in the field of chemistry.

The Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS) is a collaborative Canada-US-Mexico venture that provides an environment for creative interaction as well as the exchange of ideas, knowledge, and methods within the Mathematical Sciences, with related disciplines and with industry. The research station is located at The Banff Centre in Alberta and is supported by Canada's Natural Science and Engineering Research Council (NSERC), the US National Science Foundation (NSF), Alberta's Advanced Education and Technology, and Mexico's Consejo Nacional de Ciencia y Tecnolog�255a (CONACYT).
