About ICEQT

The International Conference on Emerging Quantum Technology (ICEQT) will be held during September 15-20, 2019, by the CAS Center for Excellence in Quantum Information and Quantum Physics, University of Science and Technology of China. The predecessor of ICEQT was the International Conference on Quantum Foundation and Quantum Technology (ICQFT), which has been held four times in the past thirteen years:

  • The 1st ICQFT, 2006, Hangzhou
  • The 2nd ICQFT, 2009, Shanghai
  • The 3rd ICQFT, 2012, Dunhuang
  • The 4th ICQFT, 2016, Shanghai

As planned, ICEQT will become a biennial international conference series on quantum information technology.

On September 18, the Micius Quantum Prizes will be awarded. The Micius Quantum Prizes 2018 go to the field of quantum computation with six laureates, Ignacio Cirac, David Deutsch, Peter Shor, Peter Zoller, Rainer Blatt and David Wineland, whilst the Micius Quantum Prizes 2019 go to the field of quantum communication with six laureates, Charles Bennett, Gilles Brassard, Artur Ekert, Stephen Wiesner, Jian-Wei Pan and Anton Zeilinger. 10 laureates will participate this conference to give prize talks.
