  • The participation to the 7th IQFA's Colloquium is free, however, registration is mandatory, please register here.
  • To submit a contribution, please use the following latex template, prepare an 1-page abstract, and then go to "Submit an abstract" to upload it in the PDF format only.


The CNRS research network on "Quantum Engineering, from Fundamental Aspects to Applications" (IQFA) organizes its 7th colloquium, outlined along its 6 main inverstigated thematics (ARTs) that meet perfectly those of the next European Flagship on Quantum Technologies. New fundamental concepts in quantum information, as well as advances in quantum technologies will be promoted during this 3-day meeting.

Thanks to the wide scientific community associated with IQFA, this colloquium will enable participants to exchange on state-of-the-art developments in the vast and active field of quantum engineering and technologies. 

The conference is organized around three types of communication:

  • Invited 1-hour Pedagogical Tutorials given by internationally recognized experts who will present a synthetic focus on specific topics in the field;
  • Contributed Talks (25') presenting recent advances in the field. 10 to 15 poster contributions will be ugraded by the scientific committee as invited oral presentations;
  • Poster sessions enabling a large number of participants to present their results to the quantum information community.

In addition, a session will be devoted to the European Quantum Flaghsip, where academical and industrial partners, as well a representative of the French Ministry of Higher Education and Research (MESR), will present their views and perspectives.


This year, the covered thematics evolve in such a way to meet those of the European Flagship on Quantum Technologies.
