QWorld Quantum Science Days 2023!

QWorld Quantum Science Days 2023 | May 29-31, Online

QWorld Quantum Science Days 2023 (QSD 2023) is a scientific meeting organized by QWorld (Association) to provide opportunities to the quantum community to present and discuss their research results at all levels (from short projects to thesis work to research publications), and to get to know each other.

The event is held online by using a Discord server and Zoom meetings between 10:00 and 18:30 (UTC) on May 29-31, 2023.

We have optional registration fee (details will be shared), and the participation certificates will be provided only for the ones paying (part of) registration fee. Additionally, our at least silver level donors will be able to get certificates if they register to the conference. There will be no certificates for the listeners, who will attend the conference for free.

The submissions are open (until the World Quantum Day 2023). The registrations for participation & listeners will be open by the end of April 2023.

Call for contributed talks

Scope: All aspects of quantum information science and technology.

We welcome contributed talk submissions reporting on original research results, as well as reporting on internship projects (e.g, QIntern 2022), ongoing and completed BSc and MSc thesis works, and open-source software. We also welcome outreach talks. As many talks as possible will be selected for oral presentations. There will be no poster session. Previously published or presented talks, preferable recent ones, are welcome to be submitted. 

There will be an abstract booklet available to the participants/listeners before the meeting. Each accepted work will be recorded and then made publicly available after the conference. At least one speaker must present their work if accepted.

Submissions will be closed by the World Quantum Day 2023 (Friday, April 14, 2023).

Submit your work by filling the following Google form, and (i) either upload a manuscript or an extended abstract of around two pages through the form (ii) or provide a link (e.g., arXiv or DOI) to your (published) work.
