Registration: Registration is required.
Date: December 19, 2020 December 20, 2020 December 26, 2020 December 27, 2020 January 2, 2021 January 3, 2021 January 9, 2021 January 10, 2021
Time: 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm


This is a series of eight lectures, each being one hour long, conducted through Zoom and exclusively online. The lectures will orient any mathematically aligned student to understand the basics and some of the exciting, far-reaching consequences of quantum computing. No formal background in quantum physics is required, though a self-initiation may help. The course is most useful for students in their F.Sc/A’levels and students of physical sciences and engineering who are interested to learn more about quantum computers.

The lectures will be delivered by Dr Muhammad Sabieh Anwar (D. Phil in Quantum Computing, University of Oxford; Professor of Physics, LUMS; and General Secretary, KSS).

To register, fill the registration form below. The last date for registration is 17 December 2020. The lectures will commence on 19 December 2020.
