Eisner & Lubin Auditorium
New York University

Scope and Objectives

NYC Quantum Summit is a two-day event aimed at creating a quantum hub to identify and discuss near-term and long-term opportunities in quantum computation and communication especially in New York City. We are aiming for an audience of 120+ outstanding attendees including academics, government officials, investors, and representatives of the private sector. During the first day we plan to focus on opportunities in quantum and on the second day we discuss how we can create and expand on US-EU collaborations. Due to the space limitation, the meeting is invitation only and will be scheduled with ample opportunities for discussion. The event is organized by Javad Shabani, the director of the Center for Quantum Information Physics (CQIP) at the Department of Physics at New York University (NYU).

Note: This event is in-person only, there will be no recordings, and there will be no media representatives.
