University of Washington

On March 18-19, a coalition led by the U.S. Department of Energy’s Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, Microsoft, and the University of Washington will convene in Seattle for an inaugural summit to launch the Northwest Quantum Nexus (NQN). The Summit will establish a center of geographic and intellectual gravity in the Northwest, where a talent pool can flourish and contribute to the quantum economy, through knowledge sharing, skill and experience development, research impacts, and community engagement.

We invite you to join leaders in quantum information science and fellow decision-makers for this inaugural workshop to share your perspectives on the future of quantum information science (QIS). At the Summit, we will explore how the Northwest can shape the future of quantum computing and its applications while giving back to the region by creating a vibrant industry that will contribute to the economic vitality of the region for decades to come.
