Joint Symposium on Standards for Quantum Technologies
23 March, virtual event
This joint symposium will bring together world-leading speakers to introduce different aspects of quantum technologies: quantum communication, quantum computation and quantum measurement. This will be followed by an extensive panel discussion involving representatives from ISO, IEC, ITU-T, NIST, ETS More... I, ISO and CEN/CENELEC to discuss the general importance of standards for quantum technologies, identify and prioritise areas in which standards would be most required and according to which timeline (road-mapping).
