In Person & Virtual

In “Quantum Steampunk”, the exciting new book from Harvard physicist Dr. Nicole Yunger Halpern, the industrial revolution meets the quantum-technology revolution. While readers follow the adventures of a rag-tag steampunk crew on trains, dirigibles, and automobiles, they explore questions such as, “Can quantum physics revolutionize engines?” and “What deeper secrets can quantum information reveal about the trajectory of time?” Join Dr.

Quantum science and technology is rapidly accelerating globally and is strategically important to Canada. Canada has a strong, growing coast-to-caost quantum community spanning from academia to government laboratories and industry.ude talks by prominent speakers, panel discussion, and networking events enmabling Canadians to showcase excellence in their fields. This three-day event brings Canada's quantum community together to enable awareness and collaboration across the industry.

Speakers from the Institute for Quantum Computing include faculty members:

We're teaming up with the Kitchener Public Library for a free, virtual talk on the book titled "Where did the universe come from?". The co-authors, Chris and Geraint, will talk about the fascinating exploration of the vastness of the universe. 

Where can an undergraduate degree in mathematics, science or engineering take you? Hear from panelists about their own career journeys launched from STEM degrees.

Whether you’re deciding what to study or if you are already in university, bring your questions for the Women in STEM panelists and learn more about different career pathways. Join us live on YouTube - set your reminder!

Join us for casual conversations with quantum researchers.

Twesh Upadhyaya, IQC graduate student, joins us for a virtual Fireside Chat to talk about finding a passion for quantum information science in high school and to share his journey to studying the theory of quantum security.

Photons in Space: the Next Frontier! These are the voyages of Canada's first Quantum Satellite Mission - the Quantum EncrYption and Science Satellite (QEYSSat). Its upcoming mission: To explore strange new physics, and enable secure communication across Canada and around the world. To seek out new discoveries and new ways to communicate... To boldly send photons where none have gone before!

Join us for casual conversations with researchers at the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC).

Professor David Gosset - Tuesday, November 24, 7:00 p.m.

For our fourth Fireside Chat, we welcome Professor David Gosset of the Institute for Quantum Computing and the University of Waterloo's Department of Combinatorics & Optimization.

David Gosset joined the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) as an Associate Professor in the Department of Combinatorics and Optimization at the University of Waterloo on August 1, 2018.
