AIMS:

The main purpose of the QTML workshop is to provide an interdisciplinary platform to bring together leading academic scientists, researchers and students in the fields of Quantum Computing, Machine Learning and Quantum Machine Learning (QML).
The workshop aims to survey the major results in the new area of QML through a series of invited talks. The programme will also include a number of contributed presentations (see below for submission instructions).

VENUE:

QTML 2017 will take place in Verona, Italy. The venue will be:

SCOPE:

Topics include, but are not limited to:

- Quantum computing for enhancing machine learning algorithms
- Machine learning techniques for the analysis of interacting quantum systems
- Quantum entanglement and topology for the efficient representation of quantum systems
- Topological approaches to machine learning based on Topological Quantum Computation
- Advances of algorithmic techniques for quantum optimisation systems (e.g. quantum annealers)
