New Series! "Quantum Science Seminar”


Since all Summer conferences in our research fields will likely be canceled or significantly delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic international team of quantum scientists are organizing a new “Quantum Science Seminar” series.

It’s a weekly seminar on Quantum Science for an international audience and is broadcast via YouTube live channel. The talks will be given to broad audiences. If you are a graduate student or research scientist and think that your work is related to “quantum science,” then these talks are for you.

The seminars will take place Thursdays at 17:00 CEST (Central European Summer Time) with the first seminar

  • On Thursday, April 16th at 17:00 CEST
  • By Prof. J. Ignacio Cirac, MPQ Garching, Germany
  • On “Analog Quantum Simulation: from physics to chemistry"

You can take look at the rest of the schedule for upcoming talks here.

They have created a program similar to what you would have seen at a conference like ICAP: a series of generally accessible talks about the latest developments in Quantum Science, broadly defined. Students in particular will benefit from being exposed to the latest research in Quantum Science.

More information on the seminar website:

The recorded talks will remain accessible via YouTube for the foreseeable future and speakers will be asked to provide a PDF of their slides which will be made available on the website.

Already confirmed to present in this series in the coming weeks:

  • Roee Ozeri
  • Jacqueline Bloch
  • Darrick Chang
