Perhaps one of the lingest running conferences that plays host to some of the most famous names in the quantum world will take play in 2021 on May 6th to hear from the likes of Peter Shor and Charles Bennett. Since 1981 the conference has taken place and this year marks the 40th anniversary – when in 1981 quantum technology has little practical application. That has all changed with cloud based quantum computers available to developers around the planet. Come and listen to the likes of Peter Shor, Peter Girvin, and Charles Bennett about the latest physics developments.
Here is a summary of the events taking place on that day:
