Topics in Quantum Machine Learning
Special Session at the 2017 IEEE International Conference on Systems, Man, and Cybernetics
October 5–8, 2017, Banff Center, Banff, Canada
Outline and Motivation

A fully-funded PhD student scholarship is available to work at the Centre for Quantum Software and Information with the University of Technology Sydney in downtown Sydney. The student, who has a strong background and interest in applied mathematics, will do research under my supervision to further develop the mathematical foundations of quantum information theory and to explore applications to quantum cryptography and quantum Shannon theory. More information about my research can be found on my website: www.marcotom.info.

Quantum simulation has recently established itself as an area of study in quantum physics that merges fundamental and applied questions. Such an interaction results in a more operational understanding of some aspects of quantum mechanics in terms of nature description. The idea to simulate the dynamics of a quantum system by a quantum device was first introduced by Richard Feynman in a seminal article in 1982 and developed in different frameworks, from quantum optics to condensed matter physics.

QuantERA, a new European Research Area Network (ERA-NET) Cofund initiative launched its first joint transnational call (Call 2017) for proposals worth € 34 M in support of transnational research in the field of Quantum Information and Communication Sciences and Technologies (Q-ICST) on January 13th, 2017. Thirty research funding organisations from 26 countries throughout take part in the Call that has a deadline for pre-proposals on the 15th of March 2015.

On February 16th, 2017 QuantERA infoday accompanied by a networking event for potential proposers within QuantERA Call 2017 will take place in Malta.

QuantERA is a new European Research Area Network (ERA-NET) in the field of Quantum Technologies (QT) established as an answer to the growing need for collaborative endeavours and a common funding scheme in this field of research.

A broad range of PhD projects with a focus on experimental as well as theoretical quantum science are available through the Scottish Condensed Matter Doctoral Training Centre. Full details about the project and application procedure can be found on the CM-DTC website: http://cm-dtc.supa.ac.uk/research/phd_projects.php# .
