Update: In light of developing circumstances and growing concern about the spread of the novel coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19), Brookhaven National Laboratory and the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) have delayed the Quantum Information Science & Technology (QIST) Summit to September 2020 with a specific date to be determined soon. In the event that that the Quantum Information Science and Technology Summit has to be cancelled, all registration fees will be refunded.
Quantum Information Science and Technology (QIST) is rapidly evolving and is already demonstrating the potential to transform computing and communications. To ensure U.S. leadership in the new quantum economy, the Department of Energy (DOE), along with several other federal agencies, has made significant investments in QIST research. These efforts are augmenting those within the private sector, where multinational corporations and numerous startups are driving innovation in a sector projected to achieve revenue near $13 billion by 2023.
The QIST Summit, organized by Brookhaven National Laboratory, is the seventh in DOE’s InnovationXLab series: a showcase of the remarkable assets and capabilities of the Department’s National Laboratories. These summits facilitate a two-way exchange of information and ideas between industry, universities, investors, and end-use customers with Lab innovators and experts.
The InnovationXLab QIST Summit will connect leaders in the finance and banking, technology, communications, energy and materials sciences sectors to discuss how to accelerate QIST advancements that impact the nation and world.
