Organized by the Institute of Physics and IOP Publishing, in partnership with the University of Science and Technology of China (USTC), Quantum 2020 is bringing together the international quantum science community to learn, share and collaborate on the latest research and emerging areas of high interest.

Taking place over four days from Monday 19 to Thursday 22 October 2020, our virtual event brings together early career and established researchers from universities, industry, and government worldwide. We anticipate that the online format will have several benefits for participants including improved accessibility, reduced cost and personal disruption, and an overall reduction in the carbon footprint for the conference.

Chair of the Organizing Committee: Professor Chao-Yang Lu, USTC
Honorary Chair of the conference: Professor Jian-Wei Pan, USTC

The scientific programme for Quantum 2020 is being guided by an international Advisory Committee made up of leading researchers from around the world. We are pleased to be able to confirm a number of early high profile invited speakers with more names to be added in the coming weeks.
