Welcome to MCQST 2020!

The Munich Conference on QST 2020, organized by the Cluster of Excellence Munich Center for Quantum Science and Technology, brings together its scientific community from all career-stages with international guests in academia and industry to strengthen the exchange of ideas and discuss the latest advancements in all fields of quantum science and technology (QST).

The second Munich Conference on Quantum Science and Technology was held ONLINE from 6 to 8 July 2020.

A new format

The worldwide COVID-19 pandemic has affected all our lives and dramatically changed the status-quo, including how scientific events are organized.

Scientific exchange is a cornerstone of a researcher’s life and lies at the heart of our growing community. We are determined to make the best out of the current situation and create an online scientific conference that is environmentally, family, and even pet friendly. Therefore, we are thrilled to open up our virtual doors to the scientific community in a space designed to facilitate the exchange of ideas and latest advancements.
