Quantum Technology International Conference – QTech 2020

The growing ability to manipulate quantum systems is paving the way for a second quantum revolution and a number of initiatives worldwide have been formed to foster quantum technologies. These exciting novel applications are exploiting specific quantum properties which are not accessible with classical resources such as superposition and entanglement of individual quantum systems.

The objectives of the QTech conference, which will take place on November 2-4, 2020, is to present the latest developments of quantum technologies in the domains of quantum communication, computation, simulation, sensors and metrology, and their implementation using various platforms from atoms and ions to solid states, superconducting circuits and optics.

ANNOUNCEMENT

After careful consideration, the Chairs and the Organizing Committee have decided to transform QTech 2020 into an online conference. Indeed, travel restrictions and pandemic progress are creating too much uncertainty regarding the organization of in-person conferences. In addition, many of you have contacted us to inform that they prefer the alternative of the online meeting instead of a cancellation. This will not replace the in-person conference but it allows the community to maintain a link. Moreover, this conference will be eco-friendly and cheaper since everyone can participate from home.

We would like this edition to be interactive with AV discussions over the talks and full of opportunities to network. Providing you with a smooth meeting technically speaking is also one of our main priorities.

Please note that the committee has experience with organizing interactive online conferences. We have designed an intuitive dashboard representing the conference lobby and where you can access to each room with a single click. A welcome desk will be available every day with a staff member that you can talk with and each participant can ask for a technical test prior to the event by sending an email to qtech2020@premc.org. You will have access to the participant’s list before the conference via a networking app and several activities will be available during the breaks to facilitate the networking between participants, there will be also rooms dedicated to the speakers in order to extend the Q&A and others dedicated to open positions opportunities to encourage the creation of new collaborations. All live speakers will be contacted by the committee at least one week before the conference in order to run a quick technical test.
