Dear Colleagues;
We have decided to reschedule YQIS to April 2021 to have the best chance of a safe, in-person conference. We are prepared to host a remote conference if it is required and/or safer to do so, but since networking is such a large component of the YQIS experience we are aiming for a traditional conference. We now expect the call for abstracts to be in January 2021 and reviews to be in February 2021. Please reach out with any questions, concerns, and ideas. Updates will follow

Thank you for your understandings.

The Sixth International Conference for Young Quantum Information Scientists (YQIS 2021) will be held at the Facility for Rare Isotope Beams / National Superconducting Cyclotron Laboratory (FRIB/NSCL) at Michigan State University (MSU), East Lansing, Michigan, USA from April 12 to 16, 2021. YQIS provides a venue for young researchers (graduate students, post-docs) to disseminate their cutting-edge research and strengthen ties to the quantum information community.

The talks given by young researchers are complemented by keynote presentations from invited speakers in academia and industry.

YQIS welcomes submissions from both the theoretical and experimental sides of quantum information science, especially: 

  • Trapped ion quantum computers

  • NISQ Algorithms

  • Quantum walk algorithms

  • Quantum resource theories

  • Quantum computational supremacy

  • Tensor networks

  • Topological order and QC

  • Quantum Error Correction

  • Simulation of Chemistry/Physics

  • Quantum thermodynamics

  • Post-quantum crypto

The quantum information community stands out for its cross-disciplinary nature, bringing together physicists, mathematicians, computer scientists, chemists, and more. YQIS 2021 seeks to provide a platform for early-career researchers to engage in rich, multi-disciplinary discussions and network with future leaders of the field.
