The Division of Information Technology (DIT) at the University of Maryland is pleased to announce the following workshop for members of the UMD community.

There are only a limited number of seats available. Registration will remain open until 10 April 2022 or until all seats are filled. We expect the workshop to fill up before the registration deadline.

This afternoon workshop is intended to introduce participants to the main classes of quantum algorithms and will provide example codes that can be run as quantum simulations or directly submitted to IonQ's quantum computers. This course will briefly cover:

Examples will be provided as Jupyter notebooks; to run these codes on IonQ's quantum computers, participants will receive IonQ API tokens (details will be provided to registered users before the workshop).


Basics knowledge of quantum computing is assumed; we suggest to attend the workshop "Practical Quantum Computing" before taking this course.

System Requirements

The classroom provides 29 seats with Desktop computers. If you want to use your own computer, make sure that a terminal application (e.g. PuTTY on Windows) is installed. A locally installed python/anaconda3 environment including qiskit[visualization] and qiskit-ionq packages is recommended but not required: instead, you can use a modern web browser (on Windows preferably Firefox) to access the Deepthought2 OnDemand web portal and run Jupyter as an interactive application.

Miscellaneous Details

While the official registration deadline is 10 April 2022, we are currently limiting this workshop to 29 participants on a first-come, first-served basis, and registration will close once the workshop is full.

NOTE: DIT reserves the right to cancel the workshop for any reason with little notice.
