There’s no charge to attend HAQS. Just bring your enthusiasm and a couple of Red Bulls 😀

HAQS

HAQS will take place virtually from Oct 21-Nov 5, 2022. All participants will receive zoom links for the kick off, workshops, and judging.

To register for HAQS, create a qbraid account and visit the HAQS tab or https://account.qbraid.com/haqs

If you need further assistance feel free to contact us:

Of course! HAQS is open for all individuals on their quantum journey.

We are working to create challenges for which you can complete in ~30 hours. You are welcome to spend more time to make you submission much more competitive.

Technical

You will have access to quantum computers from Rigetti, IonQ, DWave, and Oxford Quantum Computing. You will receive more details on the exact machines being made available, soon.

Our goal is to provide you with a crash-course for all the challenges through the workshops. So, with minimal prerequisites, you will be able to take part in HAQS and submit a competitive entry. We will work to organize a workshop for each of the challenges where we will explain the challenge and provide you initial directions to attack the problem.
