The objective of the workshop is highlight the computational power and investigate possible practical applications of quantum computing devices consisting of a limited number of imperfect qubits.

The scope of the workshop is all theoretical, experimental, computational and conceptual approaches to the problem. Contributions from all branches of physics, mathematics information theory and computer science that have bearing on the objective are welcome. Both positive and negative results ("no-go theorems") are in scope.

The format of the workshop will be invited talks complemented by the poster session. 

Note: Just prior to the workshop there will be a complementary event "CTP Quantum Information Days 2020" taking place at the same venue. More information can be found here.
