The 1st Conference on Quantum Sciences and Technology (ConQuest 2022)

Research Center for Quantum Physics, National Research and Innovation Agency of Indonesia (BRIN), is organizing the first international Conference on Quantum Sciences and Technology (ConQuest 2022) in Indonesia. ConQuest 2022 is a unique platform for experienced researchers as well as bright young minds to present new insights and exchange cutting-edge ideas on the fundamental sciences and applications of all quantum-based technologies. ConQuest 2022 will be held virtually through Zoom meetings on November 22-24, 2022. The main conference events are within the first two days, while the last day will be dedicated to a workshop on quantum simulation software (Qiskit and QuTiP).

Conference Track

This conference covers, but is not limited to, the following topics:
  • Foundations of quantum mechanics (entanglement, interpretations, nonlocality, etc.)
  • Quantum matter and fundamental interactions (including relevant explorative directions bridging quantum sciences and technology with high-energy physics, nuclear physics, gravity & cosmology)
  • Quantum/classical/semiclassical simulation, computation, algorithms, and software (e.g., first-principles calculations, molecular dynamics, machine learning tools, etc.)
  • Quantum information and communication (including quantum cryptography)
  • Quantum optics and photonics (including various spectroscopy techniques and their applications)
  • Quantum transport and dynamics (e.g., quantum thermodynamics, spintronics, valleytronics, etc.)
  • Quantum metrology and sensing technology
  • Emerging areas involving quantum sciences and technology (e.g., computational biology, computational chemistry, networks and complex systems, etc.)
