Optica Quantum Industry Summit at iXblue

08 - 09 Nov 2022

iXblue, Saint-Germain en Lay, France

Optica Quantum Industry Summit at iXblue - The Premier Annual Event for Leaders in Quantum

The 2022 Optica Quantum Industry Summit aims to bring together quantum companies and their potential supply chain partners, with a focus on their needs in photonics (lasers, optics, PICs, detectors, equipment), other technologies, quantum computing starter kits, system integration and investment. The Summit will address 3 primary application areas in which a paradigm shift is expected: quantum communication, quantum sensing, and quantum computing. The event is hosted at iXblue's headquarters in Saint-Germain-en-Laye, France.

So that both attendees and speakers can speak freely and interact in-person, we will not be recording or offering an online participation.
