Welcome to IQIS 2018

The series of IQIS Conferences aims to bring together many researchers from Italy and around the world in the field of Quantum Information and related Technologies.

Professors, young researchers, postdocs and students will have the opportunity to meet active research groups and establish collaborations.

The Conference will continue the work of the Italian Quantum community and agenda, first set in Camerino in 2008 and then continued in Pisa (2009), Torino (2010), Vietri (2011), Padova (2012), Como (2013), Salerno (2014), Monopoli (2015), Rome (2016) and Florence (2017).
