HQCC Meeting 2024

The HQCC project meeting will take place May 29th to May 31st (Wednesday to Friday). 

Location & How to get there:

The meeting is held in the "Cafeteria" of the Institute of Physics of the FU Berlin at

Room 1.1.25
Arnimallee 14
14195 Berlin

The venue is easily accessible via the underground line U3 ("Dahlem-Dorf" station) or the bus line X83 ("Arnimallee" stop). In general, Google Maps works very reliably to find the best route on Berlin's public transport network.


The program will feature talks from a selection of external invited speakers and project members and will leave plenty of room for scientific discussions.

Invited talks:

David Gross (Cologne):
Secret extraction attacks against obfuscated IQP circuits

Jonas Helsen (Amsterdam):
Grabbing Clifford by the big red tail: concentration bounds for random stabilizer states

Sergii Strelchuk (Cambridge, Warwick):
Classical simulation, circuit compression and magic decomposition

Contibuted talks:

Franz Schreiber (Berlin): Tomography of parametrized quantum states
Antonio Anna Mele (Berlin): Simulating Pauli expectation values in non-unital noisy random circuits
Zoltán Zimboras (Budapest): Generalized group designs: overcoming the 4-design-barrier and constructing novel unitary 2-designs in arbitrary dimensions
João Doriguello (Budapest): Beyond Bell sampling: stabilizer state learning and quantum pseudorandomness lower bounds on qudits
Miguel Murça (Lisbon): Fake a Swap Test: Towards making the Sample & Query model more quantum

* Friday 11:00 to 12:30, there you can alternatively follow an Eisert group talk in the DCCQS room:
* Jinge Bao (Singapore): On quantum time complexity of divide and conquer 

Lunch will be provided through the FU Berlin Mensa which offers a wide variety of dishes among which the participants of the workshop can freely choose.

The conference dinner will be held at Luise Dahlem (Königin-Luise-Straße 40-42, 14195 Berlin), a restaurant/beergarden right next to the physics building.

Location Details:

The meeting will be held in the Cafeteria of the physics building, which you find on the first floor (pink on plan below). Coffee breaks will be held in the coffee room (green on plan below). Discussions can take place in front of blackboards across the physics building which can be found in various places (blue on plan below). When in doubt, just ask anyone crossing your path about the Cafeteria or the location of the Eisert group rooms.
