We here at Team Qiskit understand that both quantum computing and IBM are global communities. In fact, our very first Qiskit camp, which began in Yorktown Heights, New York, near IBM’s main quantum computing research, hosted attendees from over 19 countries!

And we want to ensure that we not only recognize our global footprint but embrace it. So we are proud to announce that we will be hosting another three Qiskit camps in the remaining months of 2019, each in a different continent!

As before, registration for our Qiskit camps is by invitation only. Contact us if you’d like to nominate a student or make your case for an invitation. Strong community members that contribute to Qiskit Slack and Qiskit Github are given preference.

Winners from each international camp hackathon will be invited to our annual Qiskit Camp 2020, hosted near the quantum labs in Yorktown heights. Details for Qiskit Camp 2020 will be revealed next Spring!

Hack on, Qiskitters!
