  • This event has passed.

The CQC²T Workshop 2020 kicks off on Tuesday 11th February. We are looking forward to having the team together to share our latest research, make new connections and of course, have fun.

We have a full agenda which includes invited speakers, tutorial sessions, research and Centre updates, panel sessions with Q&A, posters and even a speed dating session. A final agenda will be provided closer to the event.

This year we are very pleased to be joined by the newly appointed members of our International Scientific Committee – Prof Klaus Ensslin, Prof Gerd Leuchs, Prof Elisabeth Giacobino and Prof David DiVincenzo – who will also be presenting throughout the workshop. The ISC will be judging this year’s Posters, with the winners being announced at the close of the conference.

We will be awarding prizes to the top 3 2020 Workshop Posters:
1st Prize: $1000
