Event details

Supported by the International Max Planck Partnership, this event aims to bring together world-leading scientists working in the areas of quantum materials, topologically-protected states and quantum computation, to discuss the potential for exploiting condensed matter systems for future quantum technologies. Tutorials will take place on the first morning to introduce early stage researchers to the field. Around 90 delegates from throughout the UK and further afield are expected to attend.


An exciting list of invited speakers have confirmed their attendance:
