Workshop on Quantum Simulations

Universidad del País Vasco UPV/EHU, Bilbao, Spain

22nd-25th October 2012

Local Organizers: Lucas Lamata and Guillermo Romero


The Workshop aims to attract the interest of the international community on interdisciplinary quantum simulations. The event topics include fundamentals in quantum simulations, mathematical developments, and applied implementations in all physical setups: trapped ions, neutral atoms, photons, superconducting circuits, and quantum dots, among others.

Senior researchers, young researchers, and students interested in interdisciplinary quantum simulations are most welcome to apply to the Workshop.

The event is sponsored by the SOLIDAQUTE (€ 5000), QESSENCE, and PROMISCE EU FP7 projects.


The Workshop on Quantum Simulations will take place at the Universidad del País Vasco UPV/EHU  Bilbao, Spain.

Here you can find a map of the UPV/EHU Leioa Campus, including the Paraninfo Hall (Workshop venue) and the various available cafeterias.

Our university central campus is located close to Bilbao, with impressive surroundings and mountain views. Bilbao is well known for its touristic, cultural, and gastronomical attractions.
