Michigan State University will be hosting the 2018 MSU Workshop on QIS from September 30 to October 3, 2018 at their campus in East Lansing, Michigan.  This workshop brings together a broad community of scientists working in the field to discuss the near future of QIS, including the physical implementations of quantum computers, the most interesting directions of QIS and the challenging fundamental and applied problems of quantum science that are posed by QIS as well as those where QIS may lead to breakthroughs addressing the fundamental challenges in building the next generation systems, and in utilizing these systems to develop applications.

The Quantum Opportunities 2018 conference will be held in Vancouver, Canada on October 2-3, 2018.  The conference will provide an independent forum to coordinate, share and debate ideas in order to realize the true potential of this important field.  The intent is to share perspectives from academic experts, investors, entrepreneurs, visionaries, and early-adopters on the scope of opportunities with quantum computing and broader quantum technologies.  The sponsor of the conference is Vanedge Capital Partners.

Quantum Industry Day in Switzerland 2018 will be held in Zürich on October 11, 2018.  It will be a day long gathering of academic and industrial R&D to foster exchange and accelerate the development of new quantum products.  Organizers of this event include IBM Research, ID Quantique, Zurich Instruments, NCCR QSIT and Euresearch.

The European Quantum Flagship Kickoff will be held in Vienna, Austria on October 29-30, 2018.  At this meeting the first round of funded projects will be presented followed by a discussion of the future plans to set the program on a successful path.  For more details including the agenda, you can go to the registration page here. The registration deadline is September 25, 2018.

A workshop on Quantum Techniques in Machine Learning (QTML 2018) will be held from November 12-16, 2018 in Durban, South Africa.  The conference will bring together experts from Quantum Computing and Machine Learning to discuss the latest progress in the rapidly growing field of Quantum Machine Learning.  Click here for details.

The International Conference on Quantum Computing (ICoQC) will take place at Ecole Normale Supérieure in Paris, France from the 26th to the 30th of November, 2018. It will present an up to date perspective on the thriving field of quantum computing. The scientific program will combine invited tutorial talks by prominent specialists, contributed talks, poster presentations and a round-table discussion. The conference is organized jointly by the French network SIRTEQ (Science and Engineering in Ile de France for Quantum Technologies) and the CEA, and sponsored by ATOS. Click here for details.

The Q-Turn workshop is a new, international, quantum information workshop that aims to bring together the leading researchers in the areas of quantum computation, information and foundations.  It will be held November 26-30, 2018 in Florianópolis, Brazil.  Topics covered will include: quantum information (e.g. cryptography, error correction, tomography, entanglement theory, many-body theory); quantum foundations (e.g. correlations, causality, generalized probabilistic theories, quantum thermodynamics, quantum gravity); quantum computation (e.g. simulation, algorithms, quantum complexity theory).  Sponsors include ETH Zürich, FQXi, IQOQI Vienna, Microsoft, IQC, and Freie Universität Berlin.

The Quantum for Business (Q2B) conference will be held on December 10-12, 2018 at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, California.  Additional details and agenda will be posted on their web site here.

The European Quantum Technologies Conference (EQTC) 2019 will be held in Grenoble, France from February 18th – 22nd, 2019.  More details on the conference will be posted at their website here.
