European Quantum Technologies Conference (EQTC) postponed to November 2021

Published on June 2nd, 2020

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 info@eqtc.org.

  • Plug and play continuous variable quantum key distribution for metropolitan networks

    The study entitled "Plug and play continuous variable quantum key distribution for metropolitan networks", published by partners of the CiViQ in Optics Express, has been highlighted as an Editor's Pick. Editor's Picks serve to highlight articles with excellent scientific quality and are representative of the work taking place in a specific field.

  • Qombs makes major advances in high performance quantum cascade laser frequency combs

    QOMBS project partner Alpes Lasers has demonstrated high-performance quantum cascade laser frequency combs at λ ∼ 6 μm for the first time. This new wavelength is important because it corresponds to the amide I vibration band of proteins, opening up numerous new biological and medical applications.

  • New software brings quantum network design to users around the world

    NetSquid, a specialized simulator for quantum networks has been made freely available for non-commercial users. In development by QuTech since 2017, the software is the first of its kind to model timing effects using discrete events. NetSquid allows researchers around the world to accurately predict the performance of quantum networks and modular quantum computing systems. Such simulations are essential to design scalable quantum systems and exploit them for radically new types of computation and communication technologies.
