Expectations of an important future technology: Symposium on quantum technologies in Munich

With the support of Munich Quantum Valley, the Bavarian Academy of Sciences and Humanities (BAdW) is organizing the symposium "Quantum Technologies. Expectations of an important future technology" with top-class lectures.

Quantum technologies have the potential to have a profound impact on science, society and the economy. But where do quantum technologies stand today? And in which application could they bring the greatest benefits in the future? This and more will be the subject of the symposium organized by the BAdW in cooperation with MQV on 12 April from 1:30 pm to 5:30 pm in Munich.

Prof. Rudolf Gross, Scientific Director of MQV and Director of the Walther-Meißner-Institute (WMI) of the BAdW, will lead through the program, in which Prof. Rainer Blatt, former Scientific Director of MQV, will give a lecture on "Quantum Computers – Computational Art with Quantum Physics". Blatt will also take part in the concluding panel discussion on "Quantum technologies – between exaggerated hopes and useful applications", in which Prof. Immanuel Bloch, MQV member and Director at the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics (MPQ), will also take part.

The event is aimed specifically at an interested public as well as teaching staff and young scientists. Registration is required for the on-site event. The lectures will also be broadcast live.

Further information on the program and registration can be found on the BAdW website.
