Symposium on Quantum Technologies

Join us for a unique Symposium on Quantum Technologies, examining emerging quantum technologies and their impact on industry and society.

29th August -0 2nd September 2006

The Idea: The Symposium has been specially designed to meet both the needs of industry and academic participants. Industry participants will be able to explore how quantum technologies could impact on their business, while academic participants will have the opportunity to explore how their research can best meet the demands of industry.

Realising the commercial opportunities of quantum will require a high degree of interdisciplinary collaboration. In this spirit of collaboration, the Symposium will bring together a diverse group of industry technologists, scientific researchers, graduate students, entrepreneurs, investors and policy makers.

Together, they will address various aspects of near-term quantum change – ranging from new techniques in nanoscale engineering, improved metrology devices, the latest secure communications systems and emerging quantum computing devices, to quantum applications in chemical engineering, and the potential discovery of new materials.

The Format: The Symposium consists of six half-day Focus Sessions. Each session includes a mixture of 20-30 minute invited and contributed talks, and in-depth Q&A. Other features of the Symposium include poster sessions, small group tutorials on specific topics, and a public lecture.

The format of the workshop is designed to be interactive, with presentations from quantum pioneers in academia and industry, demonstration sessions featuring new quantum devices, poster sessions, allowing delegates to network and share their expertise.

Local Organizing Committee: Sonia Schirmer (CU), Jiannis Pachos (CU), Simon Devitt (CU), Peter Knight (Imperial) and Andrew Briggs (Oxford)

International Advisory Committee: Andrew Briggs (Oxford), Charles Clark (NIST), Artur Ekert (Cambridge), Peter Knight (Imperial), Andy Hammond (MagiQ), Lloyd Hollenberg (Melbourne), Richard Hughes (Los Alamos), Seth Lloyd (MIT), Helen Margolis (NPL), Gerald Milburn (Queensland), Herschel Rabitz (Princeton), Andrew Shields (Toshiba), Tim Spiller (HP), David Williams (Hitachi)
