TOPIC CATEGORIES
• Entanglement-enabled quantum technologies
• Quantum information processing and computing
• Precision quantum measurement and quantum metrology
• Non-classical light sources and novel detectors
• Quantum imaging
• Quantum sensors
• Integrated and on-chip quantum devices
• Quantum communication systems
• Quantum optics of light-atom interactions
• Quantum repeaters and quantum memory
• Quantum opto-mechanics
• Quantum spintronics devices and applications
• Quantum simulation

The conference topics will cover the latest in theoretical developments and experimental implementations of quantum information technology, including the advanced engineering needed to realize such technologies. In addition to the conference’s traditional focus on quantum optics and photonics, the fifth QIM conference will widen the scope of the meeting to include other platforms for quantum technologies, broadly construed, including topics such as solid state systems (superconductors, semi-conductors), atoms and ions (including gravity gradiometers and gyroscopes, and computing and simulation engines).
