von Karman Institute Lecture Series and Events

Online / On-site - Introduction to Quantum Computing in Fluid Dynamics - STO-AVT-377

Monday 09 May 2022 - Friday 13 May 2022

VKI Secretariat, Phone: +32 2 359 96 04


This lecture series is co-organized by the NATO Collaboration Support Office and the von Karman institute for Fluid Dynamics and supported by the Science & Technology Organization.


The mission of STO is to conduct and promote co-operative research and information exchange. STO consists of a three level organization: the Science and Technology Board (STB), the Panels and the Technical Teams. The Systems Concepts and Integration (SCI) Panel is one of the seven Panels under the STB.


Get introduced to the emerging field of quantum computing in fluid dynamics

Learn the state-of-the art of computational methods and software libraries for application of QC to simulation in fluid dynamics and multi-disciplinary optimization

Network and initiate partnerships on international scale

Preliminary Program

This lecture series will review the following emerging fields:
- Quantum Computing HW and Systems: current and emerging horizons
