The LMS Computer Science Colloquium is an annual day of themed talks on a topical issue at the interface of mathematics and computer science, usually held in November at De Morgan House, London. It is organised by the LMS Computer Science Committee. The event is aimed at PhD students and post-docs, although others are welcome to attend. The event is free for students and £5 for others, which is payable on the day.
The most recent colloquium was held on 8 November 2018 and the topic was Quantum Computing: Unique Mathematical Perspectives. The speakers and their talks were as follows (links to the presentations are included where available):
Richard Jozsa (Cambridge)
Foundations of Quantum Computation and Complexity
Vivien Kendon (Durham)
Solving Problems By Finding Low Energy Quantum States
Ashley Montanaro (Bristol)
Quantum Algorithms: From Foundations To Applications
Earl Campbell (Sheffield)
Homological and hypergraph product codes for quantum error correction
Mark Howard (Sheffield)
Topics in Stabilizer Quantum Computation
Details of the next Computer Science Colloquium will be posted to this page in due course.
