Representing a follow-up to the successful ‘Quantum 2020’ virtual conference, ‘Quantum 2022’ will be chaired by Professor Chaoyang Lu (University of Science and Technology of China) and takes place on 22 and 23 October. The scientific programme includes 28 invited talks from world-leading researchers covering some of the most important developments in the field. Among the prominent speakers are:

  • Mete Atatüre, University of Cambridge, UK

  • Tracy Northup, University of Innsbruck, Austria
  • Jianwei Pan, University of Science and Technology of China, China
  • Li Qian, University of Toronto, Canada
  • Birgitta Whaley, University of California, Berkeley, USA


Professor Chaoyang Lu, the Chair for ‘Quantum 2022’, said: “Following on from the success of Quantum 2020, I am delighted to be working with IOP Publishing again in bringing together another high-profile event for the quantum science community. With my colleagues on the organising committee, we’ve managed to put together a fantastic programme with talks from world-leading speakers that will cover some of the most exciting directions in quantum science and technology today.

Dr Tim Smith, Head of Portfolio Development at IOP Publishing, said: “Recently recognised through the 2022 Nobel Prize for Physics, quantum science and technology represent one of the most exciting and rapidly developing areas of science today, and one that IOP Publishing has a proud history in through our publishing activities. With our co-organisers we are looking forward to a fantastic two-day event that brings together an international mix of early career and established researchers working at the very cutting edge of the field.” 

A focus issue aligned with ‘Quantum 2022’ on the theme of “Recent Progress in Quantum Computation and Quantum Simulation” has been announced in the IOP Publishing journal Quantum Science and Technology. Proposals and submissions from the community are welcome. Full details about the scientific programme and registration for the workshop are available at
