Chiral Matter: from quarks to quantum computers

Chirality plays a key role in modern science and technology, from particle physics to pharmacology. Recently, impressive progress has been made in the theoretical and experimental studies of quantum matter with chiral constituents, from quark-gluon plasma to Dirac and Weyl semimetals. With the recent advent of quantum computing, the studies of real-time quantum phenomena in chiral matter have become accessible.

In this context, the conference aims to bring together scientists interested in various aspects of chiral matter and in applications of quantum computing to the description of real-time phenomena. Topics will cover:

- Real-time chiral response in nuclear and condensed matter physics
- Anomalous transport phenomena in real time
- Quantum computing methods for real-time quantum phenomena
- Quantum simulations on quantum and classical hardware

Place Jean Jaurès - 37000 TOURS - FR

The event will take place in the city centre at the Hotel de Ville of Tours located in Square Jean-Jaures and very near the main train station. This elegant building was designed in the early 20th century by Victor Laloux, the architect of the Gare d'Orsay in Paris (now the Musée d'Orsay).  Its monumental stairs, paintings and sculptures make it a recommended place to visit. Participants will also have the opportunity to discover French cuisine and Loire Valley wines during an evening social.
