We are delighted to announce that the University of Pennsylvania’s new Center for Quantum Information, Engineering, Science, and Technology (QUIEST) will be hosting its inaugural kickoff symposium this spring: The Penn Forum on Quantum Systems (FoQuS). We are bringing in speakers from academia, industry, and government to participate in this event, in order to build connections between researchers, to raise awareness about regional, national, and international efforts in QUIEST, and to help guide research and education priorities for the QUIEST center.

The symposium will be broadly organized around the QUIEST research domains:

  • Materials for QUIEST – Synthesis, characterization, and optimization of materials for the storage, manipulation, or transduction of quantum information.
  • Quantum Devices – Design and realization of new quantum processors, quantum sensors, and quantum interconnects, especially in combination with integrated electronics and photonics architectures.
  • Quantum Systems – Theory of quantum information processing, new architectures for intermediate-scale and fault-tolerant quantum processors, and quantum networking.
  • QUIEST Impact – Optimization and application of quantum sensors for materials science, chemistry, biology, and medicine; the use of quantum computers for materials design and data science.

Featured speakers at this event will include: 

  • David DiVincenzo (RWTH Aachen)
  • Supratik Guha (Argonne National Labs & University of Chicago)
  • Andrew Houck (Princeton University)
  • Alicia Kollar (University of Maryland)
  • Allyson O’Brien (DARPA I2O)
  • John Morton (University College London & Quantum Motion)
  • Jungsang Kim (Duke University)
  • Romana Schirhagl (Groningen University)
  • Andy Schwartz (Department of Energy)

We hope you can join us for this exciting event! Please register for free at the link below to participate in this Symposium. We will share more event details, including a program schedule, with all registered participants as the event date gets closer. Registration will remain open through April 19, 2024.
