The event will grant attendees — from academia, industry and government — a perspective on quantum research ranging from basic science, to application, to the policy that will connect them. On the first day, attendees will imagine a future transformed by revolutionary and accessible quantum technology. On the second day, they will identify strategies to create a quantum future.

Confirmed speakers include Chris Fall, director of the Office of Science at the Department of Energy; Mark Kasevich, professor of physics and applied physics at Stanford University; Chris Monroe, University of Maryland professor and founder of IonQ; and Chris Lirakis, principal scientist at IBM.
