Jointly Presents

Seventh International
Quantum Science Symposium Europe-2018 Meeting
Quantum Inforamtion, Computing and Communication to Semiconductors, Nano Materials & &
Graphene Research

November 5 - 6, 2018

Venue: Peterhouse, University of Cambridge, Cambridge CB2 1RD, UK

A Unique Theme Conference & Exhibition in the Quantum Physics and Graphenes & Meta Materials

Meeting Place:

The Venue Peterhouse (middle) is the oldest College of the University of Cambridge, founded in 1284 and an institution dedicated to education and research. Throughout its history, Petreans have been at the heart of the political, social and religious controversies that have shaped today’s society. Some of the influential Petreans include: Henry Cavendish, Lord Kelvin, Sir Frank Whittle and Christopher Cockerill, and Nobel Laureates – Sir John Kendrew, Sir Aaron Klug, Archer Martin and Max Perutz , who gave a twentieth century lead in the field of Molecular Biology. Since many centuries it remained as a hub for innovation and successive generations of the brightest young people around the world.

Why do you wait to join for an intellectual gathering in the ‘Quantum Science ’ & ' Graphenes' arenas at the prestigious college Peterhouse in the Premier University campus!

Expected Maximum Capacity:
Target Audience 75
Total Speaker Presentations: 30

The purpose and scope of this Quantum Science Symposium Europe-2018 is to provide a forum for the discussion of the current state of the art of rapidly evolving Crystal, Graphene, and Quantum Science fields which are emerging and interdisciplinary in Physical Sciences.

Quantum Science Symposium (QSS) Europe-2018: This is our Seventh international symposium in the physical sciences series. The first was held in Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA on September 26-27, 2011, which was inaugurated by MIT Physics Nobel Laureate Professor Frank Wilczek. The second meeting was held at the prestigious Peterhouse (college) of the University of Cambridge, United Kingdom on November 1-2, 2012, which was presided by Professors David Ritchie and Stephen Blundell of the University of Cambridge and Oxford respectively. The third one was held in Waltham, Massachusetts in combination with Crystal & Graphene Science Symposium on September 4-5, 2013, which was presided by Nobel Laureate Jerome Friedman and Professor Mildred Dresselhaus of MIT. The fourth (and the first) QSS-Asia was held at the University of Tokyo, Japan on November 22-23, 2013, which was presided by Professor Jaw–Shen Tsai of RIKEN, Japan. The fifth QSS-2015 was held in combination with Crystal & Graphene Science in the vicinity of Harvard and MIT in Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA on September 21-22, 2015, which was presided by Professors Amar Yacoby, Philip Kim of Harvard and Vladan Vuletic and Eugene Fitzgerald of MIT. The sixth meeting was held at University of Cambridge, UK on November 1-2, 2016 which presided by Professors Sir. Michael Pepper of UCL and Henning Sirringhaus of University of Cambridge, UK.

The purpose and scope of this symposium is to provide a forum for the discussion of the current state of the art of rapidly evolving Quantum Science, Crystal and Graphene fields. The branch of quantum spintronics, quantum computing and Graphene electronics has attracted a much attention in recent years from both academic and industry laboratories, so we combined and grouped into ‘Quantum Science.’

In this international meeting, prominent researchers (theoretical and experimental physicists, organic, inorganic and physical chemists, materials scientists, biologists, mathematicians, electrical, electronic and computer engineers) from both academia and industry will gather and discuss the applications in form of keynote lectures, invited talks, short oral, and poster presentations.

Venue: The Venue Peterhouse is the oldest College of the University of Cambridge, located close to the banks of Cam River. This college has produced science giants such as: Henry Cavendish, Lord Kelvin, Sir Frank Whittle and Christopher Cockerill, and Nobel Laureates – Sir John Kendrew, Sir Aaron Klug, Archer Martin and Max Perutz. Participate in this meeting and become proud attending member of this prestigious college in the world.

.Note: All the members (except keynote speakers and others who arranged with organizer) who participate in this symposium have to register for the meeting by paying the appropriate registration fee.
