Early career researchers (ECRs) and research students in quantum from across Imperial College London are holding a one-day internal conference to showcase the range of quantum research going on across the university, and make connections with peers. This conference is supported by the Imperial Centre for Quantum Engineering, Science and Technology (QuEST).

Keynote speakers are:

Panel moderator: Jessica Wade, Imperial College London

Submit a poster to demonstrate your research and make connections with early career researchers working on related ideas across the whole of the university. Or attend just for the networking and inspiring talks.

This event is open to current Imperial ECRs and students (undergraduate and postgraduate) only, and to PhD students who will start their courses in October 2024. The conference is free to attend. If you want to submit a poster, QuEST unfortunately can’t pay for poster printing.
