PQI Poster Session


In the midst of Science2015, PQI will conduct our own poster session. We anticipate up to 55 participants, and prizes such as iPads, Kindles, and Travel Awards are potential awards for the best contributors!


Here is a checklist for all participants

  • Science2015 Registration for PQI poster session (deadline past)
  • PQI poster form 
  • Poster upload (on same link as above), if you need us to print your poster (deadline past)

Here are the answers to a few frequently asked questions. If you have further questions, email john.melson@pqi.org.


Who has to upload a poster?

Anyone who needs us to print a poster and set it up for them. If you plan to print your own or we already have your poster printed out in our possession, you do not need to upload it. 


Visit http://www.pqi.org/science2015/posters to fill out the poster form, including the list of (PQI2015) posters we already have in our possession, and at the bottom of the page, upload your poster if necessary.


What is the deadline for poster upload?

If you are going to upload a poster for us to print, it must be done by 9 AM on Friday, 10/2. This deadline gives our local printer enough time to handle the anticipated volume. 


It will help us greatly if you upload your poster as soon as you finish it, rather than waiting until the Friday deadline.


What is the preferred file type?

We would prefer a PDF upload, as our printer has requested them. Please convert your PPT to PDF when you upload.


If you have already uploaded the file as a PPT that is ok, we will convert it.

Lunchtime Learning






Join faculty members from the Pittsburgh Quantum Institute (PQI) to learn about and discuss the new field of quantum computing. The panel includes physics, chemistry, and engineering experts and will be moderated by the PQI director. What are quantum computers, and how are they different from ordinary computers? Which disciplines can quantum computers affect, and why don’t we have them already? Find out during this lunchtime session.
