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:

Quantum Computing Users Forum will be held at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Oak Ridge, Tennessee on April 24-25, 2019. It will bring together users to discuss common practices in the development of applications and software for quantum computing systems. The one-day meeting will include invited and contributed presentations from leading researchers in the field of quantum computer science and provide a forum in which to discuss the latest scientific applications of quantum computers. An optional training event is provided for new quantum computing users, and a poster session will be held to showcase the latest research from users.

A Quantum Summit will be held in Toronto, Canada on April 24-25, 2019. This inaugural event will bring together leading private and public sector experts and thought leaders who will provide key insights into emerging cyber security threats and steps that can be taken now to safeguard critical systems, including deploying Quantum-resistant encryption and Autonomous Security (AS) machine networks that manage their own security without human intervention.

The IEEE Quantum Meeting 2019 will be held in Gaithersburg, Maryland on May 1-2, 2019.  The meeting will include the Standards Technical Advisory Committee with IEEE Quantum Initiative and will also explore the latest advancements in quantum technologies.

A discussion on Quantum Computer’s Destruction of Security & Blockchain will be held on May 10, 2019 at the BCI Summit in New York City.  This is an investment summit to explore investment trends, opportunities and risks in global disruptive technologies such as blockchain, artificial intelligence (AI), quantum computing and cybersecurity with prominent investors, technologists and founders of tech startups.

The Southern California Quantum Computing Meetup group will hold its second meeting on May 15, 2019 in Pasadena, California.  Speakers will include a representative from  IBM discussing their quantum volume metric and another speaker from Qubitekk  who will talk about quantum cryptography.

The Quantum Physics and Logic 2019 (QPL2019) conference will be held on June 10-14, 2019 at Chapman University in Orange, California. This conference brings together researchers working on mathematical foundations of quantum physics, quantum computing, and related areas, with a focus on structural perspectives and the use of logical tools, ordered algebraic and category-theoretic structures, formal languages, semantical methods, and other computer science techniques applied to the study of physical behavior in general.

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.

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.

    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.
