Schools Are there any good groups about quantum computation?

Hi. After learning quantum computation for months, it fascinates me. Quantum computation expands my view about computational methods. I believe that many future achievements can be obtained from quantum computing, especially the combination of AI and quantum computation. Meanwhile, I think quantum computation is a chanllenging field with strange approaches to computation. I would like to pursue in this field.

However, I have little information about the community of quantum computation. Could you name some good groups about quantum computation, including those outside US, because given the current trade war between China and US, I guess it would be harder to apply to schools in US. As I mention good groups, I mean those not top tier groups which I guess I can't compete with other applicants, and those groups having interesting ideas.

Also, could you suggest some conferences or periodicals I should follow to know the recent research in quantum computation?

Many thanks.

Keep an eye on Physical Review Letters. They often publish papers related to quantum computing, and some of them are open access. In addition, Science Daily often publishes news on such papers. If you subscribe to their newsletter, then you will get all the important stuff in your mailbox. If you find something interesting, go to the bottom of the page and you'll find the paper on which the article has been written.

Also, the International Centre for Theoretical Sciences, TIFR, Bangalore, India, often arranges workshops and seminars on quantum computation and quantum information. Here is a link to their YouTube page. If you go to the playlists, you might find something interesting.

In addition, if you get to read a paper on the specified subjects, go the reference section and see what papers have been mentioned there. In this way, you will get to know about journals that are specific to your field.

Thanks, Wrichik Basu. I can't wait to try your advice.

The IQC (institute for quantum computing) in Canada has a lot of research groups. I'd check them out.

"Quantum computation" is a very big field. Are you interested in software (algorithms etc)? Or hardware?
If it is the latter what type(superconducting, trapped ion, topological or spin) ? Perhaps fabrication? Or even the EE aspects (FPGA programming, microwave engineering, feedback etc)?

Although there are places (like Waterloo) which cover many of these areas; there are -AFAIK- no place that does all of them.
Hence, you need to figure out what you are interested in before we can give you any meaningful advice.
