EU-USA-Japan International Symposium on Quantum Technology

EU-USA-Japan International Symposium on Quantum Technology 

Facing the growing possibility of an imminent second quantum revolution, the Japan Science and Technology Agency (JST) will hold the EU-USA-Japan International Symposium on Quantum Technology (ISQT) on Dec. 16-17 in Kyoto. Participants from Europe, the USA and Japan will include leading researchers, tech companies generating quantum technology innovation, and forward-thinking policy makers.
Through joint sessions on the QT work of leading EU-USA-Japan researchers, including the fields of quantum computing, quantum communication and quantum metrology & sensing, we hope to strengthen collaborations and improve mutual research potential. During the panel discussion in Session 6 “Policy and Roadmap of Quantum Technology”, we will explore the perspectives of QT R&D policy makers and project managers of each geographic area. In addition, young researchers from Japan’s major national QT research programs will introduce hot research topics at the joint poster session.
The ISQT will be closely followed on Dec. 17 by topical conferences hosted by the Quantum Leap Flagship Program (Q-LEAP) and Cross-ministerial Strategic Innovation Promotion Program (SIP):
- The 2nd International Forum on Quantum Metrology and Sensing (The 2nd IFQMS)
- Topical Conference on Quantum Computing 2019 (TCQC2019)
- Topical Conference on Quantum Communication and Security 2019 (TCQCS2019)
