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 2019 conferences here.

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

An International Quantum Computing Business Conference sponsored by Bpifrance will be held on June 20, 2019 in Paris, France. Additional organizers including Atos, IBM and Quantonation. The event will include round tables, keynotes and company pitches to explore the progress made recently by Quantum Computing leading stakeholders and to foresee the upcoming real-world applications. This is an invitation only event so attendees must register to confirm their participation.

The 1st International Workshop on Quantum Resource Estimation (QRE2019) will be held on June 22, 2019 in Phoenix, Arizona. This workshop covers the emerging field of Quantum Resource Estimation (QRE), benchmarking and performance analytics with participation anticipated from those working in quantum algorithm optimization, error-correction, architecture design, quantum compilation, classical control and resource benchmarking.

The 2019 Adiabatic Quantum Computing Conference (AQC 2019) will be held on June 24-28, 2019 in Innsbruck, Austria. This will be the 8th annual meeting of this conference which brings together researchers from different communities to explore using adiabatic quantum computing and quantum annealing to solve combinatorial optimization and sampling problems. Several efforts are now underway to manufacture processors that implement these strategies. The goal of the conference is to initiate a dialogue on the challenges that must be overcome to realize useful adiabatic quantum computations in existing or near-term hardware.

A free webinar on Quantum Computing Basics presented by Dr. Jonathan Dowling, Professor of Theoretical Physics at Louisiana State University, will occur on June 27, 2019 from 11:00 AM to 12:30 PM EDT. The seminar will examine the quantum computing strategies of both big names and pure play firms working in the field.  The seminar will also cover the development of chip technology at the core of quantum computers, the delivery of quantum computing power to the end user—clouds or in-house machines, and application and industry sector pioneers who are using quantum computing.

An Executive Roundtable on Quantum Computing Applications will occur on July 11, 2019 in downtown Los Angeles hosted by law firm Wilson Sonsini Goodrich and Rosati, incubator Quantum Labz with additional participation of the Southern California Quantum Computing Meetup group. This fast-paced evening event will provide deep insight into the current status of quantum computing and the applications that are currently being developed. This must-see panel includes industry experts who will tell us which quantum applications are feasible now while providing a roadmap for quantum computing opportunities in the near future. Attendees will quickly catch up on the quantum computing industry and leave with go-forward quantum strategies.

The VII Paraty Quantum Information School and Workshop will take place from August 5-16 in Paraty, Brazil on Rio de Janeiro’s Costa Verde. The school will take place between August 5 and August 9 2019 and the workshop will take place between August 12 and August 16 2019.

QCrypt 2019 will be held in Montreal, Canada on August 26-30, 2019. This conference is for students and researchers working on all aspects of quantum cryptography and includes theoretical and experimental research on the possibilities and limitations of secure communication and computation with quantum mechanical devices or in the presence of quantum mechanical devices. The goal of the conference to represent the previous year’s best results on quantum cryptography and to support the building of a research community in quantum cryptography.

The Quantum.Tech conference and exhibition will be held in Boston, Massachusetts on September 10-11, 2019 to cover the emerging commercial applications of quantum technologies. Tackling the spectrum of quantum technology, from quantum computing to sensing & metrology and secure communications & cryptography, this global forum will help Fortune 1000 enterprises understand and navigate the quantum landscape, assess risks and opportunities, and help senior executives build a roadmap for quantum readiness.

The European Quantum Community Meeting 2019 will be held in Helsinki, Finland on October 17-18, 2019. The two day event will be dedicated to the Quantum Technology community, the Quantum Flagship as well as setting the Strategic Research Agenda, which will be presented and discussed among the community attending the event.

The third annual Quantum Techniques in Machine Learning (QTML 2019) will be held on October 20-24, 2019 at Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) in Daejeon, South Korea. This is an annual conference that focuses on quantum machine learning, and will bring together experts from quantum computing and machine learning to discuss the latest progress in the rapidly growing field of quantum machine learning.

The Inside Quantum Technology Europe conference will be held on October 29-30, 2019 at the The Hague in The Netherlands. The conference will be jointly organized by U.S. originator 3DR Holdings, which organized the highly successful Inside Quantum Technology conference in Boston early in 2019 and Netherlands-based QuTech. It will offer over 30 expert speakers from commercial, end-user, start-up, governmental and academic organizations. Attendees will learn about the latest quantum technology opportunities in areas such as financial services, aerospace, pharma and specialty chemical, healthcare, automotive and transportation, defense, government and R&D.

    Thank-you for your comment. We have added QCrypt 2019 to this listing. The QIP 2019 conference occurred in January and we had previously removed it from this page. QIP 2020 will be held in Shenzhen, China in January 2020 but it doesn’t have a web site yet. When the web site with details on the conference is available we will add the conference to this page.
