The Quantum Computing Summit Silicon Valley organized by Informa Tech will occur on November 3-4, 2021. It will run alongside the AI Summit has been designed to provide business, technical, research, academic and innovation insight, qualified via application-based quantum experiences to showcase how quantum is delivering real business value, drive process efficiency and cost optimisation.
The Optical Society (OSA) will hold its Quantum Information and Measurement VI as a virtual conference on November 1-5, 2021. The conference topics will cover the latest in theoretical developments and experimental implementations of quantum information technology, including the advanced engineering needed to realize such technologies. In addition to the conference’s traditional focus on quantum optics and photonics, the QIM conference will also include other platforms for quantum technologies, broadly construed, including topics such as solid-state systems (superconductors, semi-conductors) atoms, and ions (including gravity gradiometers and gyroscopes, and computing and simulation engines).
Quantum 2021 will be held in Bilbao, Spain on November 23-25, 2021 as an in-person conference. The ongoing progress on building quantum computers, together with the push of quantum technologies including secure communication, sensing and quantum simulations are complemented by the vast family of emerging quantum materials which offer a revolutionary playground for fundamental science but also already put in perspective novel paradigms and future quantum techs combining ultralow-power with resilient and practical implementation and processing of quantum information. The conference aims at gathering the various communities engaged in these fields, to foster the incubation of new ideas and collaborations at the forefront of quantum science.
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.
