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:

NIST will be holding the Second PQC (Post-Quantum Cryptography) Standardization Conference on August 22-24, 2019 in Santa Barbara, California co-located with the Crypto 2019 conference. The purpose will be to discuss various aspects of the 26 second round PQC candidates and obtain valuable feedback for the selection of the finalists soon after the conference. NIST will invite each submission team of the second-round candidates to give a short update on their algorithm.

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.

IBM will be sponsoring three International Qiskit Camps later this year.  These are follow-ons to the first Qiskit Camp in the U.S. that IBM held in New York and Vermont earlier this year.  The three events are Qiskit Camp Europe which will be held in Zurich, Switzerland on September 12-15, 2019, Qiskit Camp Asia which will held in Tokyo, Japan on November 19-22, 2019 and Qiskit Camp Africa to be held in Johannesburg, South Africa December 11-14, 2019. The camps will consist of a hackathon where attendees will use Qiskit to work on various projects and then present their projects to the other attendees. Registration to the Qiskit Camps is by invitation only but is expected to include developers, physicists, educators, researchers, and students   For more details you can view IBMs announcement on here.

The 5th International Conference for Young Quantum Information Scientists will be held on September 25-27, 2019 at the University of Gdańsk in Sopot, Poland. The aim of the conference is to bring together early stage researchers from a broad range of quantum information sciences. Apart from the oral and poster presentations of the participants and the invited speakers, the conference provides the opportunity for scientific and informal discussions in a relaxed environment.

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 Quantum Foundations, Technology and Applications 2019 (QFTA2019) conference will be held at the Indian Institute of Science Education and Research in Mohai, India from October 17-21, 2019. The conference is aimed to discuss the quantum foundational and technological ideas with the leading experts in the field. The conference will have two modules: a two-day workshop for Master students and young graduate students (Workshop on fundamentals of quantum information processing from Oct 17-18) followed by a three-four days conference (Oct 18-21).

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.

The BCI Summit will hold an investment summit on Quantum & Deep Tech on November 8-9, 2019 in New York City. The summit will explore opportunities in quantum technologies and advancements. Topics covered include analysis of current QC technology status, challenges and risks. Further topics will cover current and expected applications in biotech, chemistry, material science, cybersecurity and others. The expected audience will include members from the investment community, quantum startup companies and government officials.

The third annual Q2B ’19 Conference on Practical Quantum Computing will be held on December 10-12, 2019 in San Jose, California. The conference will bring together hardware & software vendors, government agencies and industry players.  It will provide the opportunity to hear the latest announcements, explore partnership opportunities, and learn how quantum computing will impact business.

    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.
