Following discussions between the Irish Centre for High-End Computing (ICHEC), EU Quantum Flagship and European Commission, the second European Quantum Technologies Conference (EQTC) which had been scheduled to take place in November 2020 is now postponed to 29th November – 3rd December 2021 at Dublin, Ireland.
In light of the uncertainty around international travel and events caused by the ongoing COVID-19 public health situation, we deliberated on measures that are required to organise a successful and, more importantly, safe EQTC. This included the assessment of alternate scenarios such as a virtual, scaled down or postponed event.
With the safety of our delegates being our paramount concern, we agreed that postponement of EQTC to 2021 is the right decision to make, given the current circumstances. We thank the outstanding and strong support from all our partners, and will continue to work with them in preparing for a successful EQTC 2021 in Dublin.
EQTC 2021 will be held at The Convention Centre Dublin 29th November – 3rd December 2021. Further details with updated information will be published at the event website www.eqtc.org. The organisers at Irish Centre for High-End Computing (ICHEC) can be reached at email@example.com.
