Practical Quantum Computing Conferences

Andrew White from the quantum technology laboratory at the University of Queensland, Australia, maintains an excellent web page listing conferences related to quantum technology around the world.   You can find his most recent listing for 2020 conferences here.

Harrisburg University maintains a web page called Quantumapalooza which provides a listing of free online learning opportunities for the Quantum Computing community.

In addition to the conferences shown on the list mentioned above, here are some additional conferences:

The Q-turn workshop will be held as an online event from November 23-27, 2020.  It is a unique international quantum information workshop series with a core mission is to foster an inclusive community and highlight outstanding research that may be under-appreciated in other high-impact venues due to systemic biases.
The Quantum Communications and Information Technology (QCIT’20) workshop will be held as part of the IEEE Globecom’20 conference in Taipei, Taiwan on December 7-11, 2020. The workshop will cover recent experimental results which confirm feasibility of real applications in quantum communications, computing, security, and sensing. On the scientific side, it will also address novel ideas in the fields of quantum communications and information processing, which contribute to the general know-how of quantum technologies.

QC Ware will hold a webinar on the Prospects and Challenges of Quantum Finance on December 3, 2020. Among the topics cover include new breakthroughs in Monte Carlo simulation, review of QNN and QML algorithms, and review of optimization approaches for portfolio optimization.

The 20th Asian Quantum Information Science Conference (AQIS ’20) will be held as an online event from December 7-9, 2020 (Australian time). It will focus on quantum information processing, communication and cryptography, an interdisciplinary field bridging quantum physics, computer science, mathematics, and information technologies. AQIS’20 will be a natural successor of EQIS’01-EQIS’05 and AQIS’06-AQIS’19. AQIS’20 will consist of invited talks, and selected oral and poster presentations.

The fourth annual Q2B Conference presented by QCWare will be held as a virtual event on December 8-10. The conference will include business & technical education, thought leadership & announcements, and the latest on research and future direction.

The Women in Quantum (WIQ) Summit III will be held as a virtual event on December 14-16, 2020. The summit will bring together the leading Women in Quantum from around the world as they talk about their quantum journey in academia, government, investing and entrepreneurship.

The 1st Workshop on Quantum Software Architectures (QSA) being held as part of the IEEE International Conference on Software Architecture (ICSA 2021) will occur on March 22, 2021. The goal of the QSA workshop is to bring together researchers and practitioners from different areas of quantum computing and (classical) software architecture to strengthen the quantum software community and discuss architectural styles and best practices of quantum software as well as other aspects of the quantum software development lifecycle. The hope is to hold the event in-person in Stuttgart, Germany, but may also be online or in a hybrid format depending upon the Covid-19 situation.

Quantum.Tech London will be held on April 12-14, 2021. The conference will cover covering quantum computing, sensing & metrology, communications & cryptography, hardware, devices and technology applications.

IQT Spring 2021 will be held as a virtual conference on June 15-18, 2021. Additional details about this event will be posted when they are available.

Quantum.Tech Boston will be held on June 21-23, 2021. The conference will cover covering quantum computing, sensing & metrology, communications & cryptography, hardware, devices and technology applications.

The Second European Quantum Technology Conference (EQTC) has been postponed until November 29, 2021 to December 3, 2021 but will still be held in Dublin, Ireland.  This will be a follow-on to the first EQTC conference held in Grenoble, France in 2019. EQTC 2021 will provide full coverage of the most prominent and recent advances in European and International quantum technology activities across basic sciences, communication, computing, simulation and sensing/metrology. The conference program addresses a wide range of topics in quantum technologies including fundamental science, infrastructure development, industry engagements, education & training, encouraging and facilitating gender balance in the quantum community, international cooperation, and policy-making. It will provide a forum to highlight the state-of-the-art in quantum technologies both in Europe and from around the world.
