15 March 09:30-18:00
NQIT, the UK quantum computing hub, and the Satellite Applications Catapult are excited to announce our hackathon on 15 March in Oxford. Having catalogued how quantum computers could be used to address space sector challenges across simulation and modelling, optimisation and earth observation data, the hackathon will offer participants the opportunity to delve further into these challenges and apply their coding skills to propose solutions, as a member of one of our hackathon teams. You don’t have to have any prior experience of a hackathon. You will have a background in a relevant field (the space sector, mathematical or physical sciences or experience in quantum information processing). You may be from academia, industry or government, all are welcome, the important thing is to bring your knowledge and energy to the day.
This is a free event, with lunch included, please note that we cannot cover your travel or living costs. The main thing to remember is that this is a chance to work in a friendly collaborative atmosphere, to learn to program a quantum machine and to develop a road map for an industry-relevant application.
