The Bristol Quantum Information Technologies Workshop will return from the 5-7 April 2017 with a new programme of speakers and panellists bringing you everything you need to know about the emerging field of Quantum Technology.

Since our conception in 2014 we have had 119 speakers and panellists who have presented their work and opinions on a range of topics from Quantum Sensing and Metrology to Quantum Communications and Networks, Quantum Algorithms to Quantum Hardware and Quantum Computation. Speakers for our 2017 BQIT workshop will include:

This year we will be "going harbourside" with our three-day event being held at the M Shed and our evening meals at Bordeaux Quay and the SS Great Britain. These venues have been chosen to represent the best of our Bristolian maritime engineering history, and to introduce the innovative and industrial city of Bristol to newcomers and return visitors.

Really great conference. I liked the format and the size. Small enough that conversations were not difficult to initiate but large enough that there were a really great list of attendees from a broad range of topics (all with the theme of quantum technologies of course).
