The conference will be set up to allow for online talks and attendees and may possibly also allow for physical attendance depending upon conditions. This is an annual international conference focusing on the interdisciplinary field of quantum technology and machine learning. The goal of the conference is to gather leading academic researchers and industry players to interact through a series of scientific talks focused on the interplay between machine learning and quantum physics.
The 2020 Chicago Quantum Summit will be held on November 11-13, 2020. It will be hosted virtually by the University of Chicago and will capitalize on the momentum of efforts across the quantum community, including the recently announced launch of US national quantum research centers and key partnerships with academia, industry, and others. With a focus on building collaborations between national centers, companies, and innovators, experts will discuss the future of quantum information science and technology, developing a quantum workforce, and the applications of emerging QIS research.
Zurich Instruments will be holding a virtual seminar on November 17, 2020 to provide a technical overview and demo of their SHFQA Quantum Analyzer. Click here to register for the event.
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.
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.
