Topical Group Meeting:
Quantum Simulations of Chemical Dynamics

With the rapid advances in quantum computing hardware, the possibility of
experimental realizations of the quantum simulation of real, physical
systems appears to be on the horizon. The aim of this workshop is to
survey experimental and algorithmic approaches for quantum simulation
of chemical dynamics. The status of the competing quantum hardware
technologies including simulation fidelity, coherence times, qubit-scaling,
architecture, bus, and memory storage will also be discussed as well as
estimates of resource requirements (total number of physical qubits and
gates and computational time).
