As usual, only poter contributions are accpeted. 10 to 15 of them will be upgraded to invited talks by IQFA's Scientific Committee.


The CNRS research network on "Quantum Engineering, from Fundamental Aspects to Applications" (IQFA) organizes its 8th colloquium, outlined along its 6 main inverstigated thematics (ARTs) that meet perfectly those of the next European Flagship on Quantum Technologies. New fundamental concepts in quantum information, as well as advances in quantum technologies will be promoted during this 3-day meeting.

Thanks to the wide scientific community associated with IQFA, this colloquium will enable participants to exchange on state-of-the-art developments in the vast and active field of quantum engineering and technologies. 

The conference is organized around three types of communication:

  • Invited 1-hour Pedagogical Tutorials given by internationally recognized experts who will present a synthetic focus on specific topics in the field;
  • Invited Talks (25') presenting recent advances in the field. 10 to 15 poster contributions will be ugraded by the scientific committee as invited oral presentations;
  • Poster sessions enabling a large number of participants to present their results to the quantum information community.

In addition, a session will be devoted to the European Flaghsip on Quantum Technologies, where academical and industrial stakeholders, will present their views and perspectives.


This year, the covered thematics are those of the European Flagship on Quantum Technologies.
