The 2021 BIST Conference, the fifth annual conference organised by the Barcelona Institute of Science and Technology, will focus on the state of quantum technologies internationally and locally, and present its many applications. The event will take place on November 3, 2021 with a combined online and in-person format, at La Pedrera Auditorium.
Quantum technologies are based on the principles of quantum mechanics, a field of study that examines the physical properties of atoms and subatomic particles. Researchers all over the world aim to exploit the behaviour of these tiny particles for applications such as quantum computing, secure communications, data security, quantum sensing, and much more.
The 2021 BIST Conference will include a keynote speech about the current state of quantum technologies internationally and in Europe. There will also be panel discussion about what is being done in Catalonia, both in research and in industry. Finally, the conference will feature a talk about how quantum technologies are inspiring art.
