IQT Vancouver · Pacific Rim 2024: Quantum Computing, Communications and Security — Pathways to Real World Solutions.

With Vancouver as North America’s gateway to the Pacific Rim, IQT and the Quantum Algorithms Institute are bringing together partners across North America and Asia to showcase the state of quantum computing, communications, and security. This international conference moves beyond the quantum hype to profile quantum computing and communications technologies and quantum expertise in real world settings. Sessions will highlight practical applications of quantum algorithms and networking in industries such as pharmaceuticals, transportation, finance, and more. Attendees will include industry and government executives, end-users and investors who will learn about the latest developments in these technologies, pathways for companies to get ready for quantum solutions, and ethics and policy considerations in this fast-growing industry.
