Inside Quantum Technology – New York, The Future of Quantum Computing, Quantum Cryptography and Quantum Sensors will be held in New York City on April 2-3, 2020. This event is a follow-on to the 2019 events held by IQT in Boston and Europe in 2019. This event is intended for business people and professionals in the quantum technology field who want to keep track of all relevant information to make strategic choices. It will provide comprehensive insights into the commercial future of all areas of quantum technology, presenting both opportunities available today and future applications for businesses and government. New York is the center of the financial world and this means enhanced attention to the conference from both investors and media outlets.
The Quantum Computing Theory in Practice (QCTIP) conference will be held in Cambridge, U.K. on April 6-8, 2020. QCTIP fosters discussion between theorists and practitioners of quantum computing. With keynote speakers, a series of invited talks from academia and industry, poster sessions and panels, it will take stock of the newest developments in the field and map future developments. The first theme of the conference is the theory of the whole quantum software stack – from quantum algorithms to quantum programming languages to quantum computing architectures. Second, will be a discussion of practical aspects of running experiments on current and NISQ devices. As a third future-looking theme, the conference will touch on roads to scaling up to more and higher quality qubits and the path to bringing down hardware requirements for quantum computations.
The Quantum.Tech London conference will be held in London, U.K. on April 20-22, 2020. The conference will help attendees understand the entire landscape and ecosystem of quantum technologies, and how they fit together. Questions that will be addressed in the conference include: What are relevant applications for enterprise use, and how developed are they? How coordinated is the approach between industry, academia and government, not just within national borders, but between nations? How developed is the broader supply chain if commercialization is to be accelerated? Are standards in place to allow replicable processes? What methods are there to benchmark, share best practices and learn from disparate industries?
The University of Bristol will be hosting the Bristol Quantum Information Technologies Workshop on April 27-29, 2020 in Bristol, UK. It is a three day annual workshop aimed at enabling leading UK and international academics and industrial partners to come together; to explore and discuss future ambitions and challenges in the field of Quantum Information Technologies.
A Quantum Information Science & Technology Summit will be held on May 5-6, 2020 at the New York Academy of Sciences in New York City.
