The 5th International Conference for Young Quantum Information Scientists (YQIS) is organised by the University of Gdansk and the National Quantum Information Centre (KCIK). The aim of the conference series is to bring together early stage researchers from a broad range of quantum information sciences. Apart from the oral and poster presentations of the participants and the invited speakers, the conference provides the opportunity for scientific and informal discussions in a relaxed environment. We address the following topics (in no specific order of preference):

  • quantum foundations
  • quantum communication and cryptography
  • technologies for quantum information processing
  • quantum thermodynamics and open systems
  • quantum simulation and computation
  • quantum correlations and networks

For the previous editions of YQIS, see the links: 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018

The conference fee must be paid via bank transfer (see the payment page) in PLN or EUR. The fee is 655PLN / 150EUR, and it includes the attendance, conference bag, coffee breaks, welcome reception and the conference dinner.
