From Quantum Materials to Quantum Information: Symposium on Trans-Scale Quantum Science and Quantum Materials Synthesis (QMQI2024)


Monday, November 11, 2024 (All day) to Friday, November 15, 2024 (All day)


Primary venue: OIST Seaside House, Secoundary venue: OIST Main Campus


Summary & Goals

The symposium "From Quantum Materials to Quantum Information: Symposium on Trans-Scale Quantum Science and Quantum Materials Synthesis" (QMQI 2024) is co-organized by OIST, the Quantum Materials Synthesis collaboration sponsored by the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation, and the Trans-Scale Quantum Science Institute of the University of Tokyo. It will bring together researchers from quantum material science, quantum many-body physics, quantum computation, quantum information and foundations in a single event with the aim to exchange ideas at the interface of these disciplines and explore interdisciplinary research directions. 

The symposium will be structured as follows: 

Days 1-2 will focus on quantum materials, particularly thin-film and heterostructure fabrication, and advanced experimental techniques for unveiling their functionalities. These topics are closely relevant to the design of material platforms for quantum many-body simulations and emerging information technologies.

Day 3 is a bridging day on quantum many-body physics, which serves as the "unifying theme" for connecting quantum materials research with quantum information and quantum computation.

Days 4-5 will focus on quantum information, quantum foundations, and quantum computation.

While the majority of the talks will be by invitation, we will accept a limited number of contributed talks.

The symposium will place in OIST's Seaside House, with the exception of the bridging day, which will be held on the OIST campus.   A limited amount of accomodation for participants is available in Seaside House. This will be provided free of charge, with priority given to students.
