Quantum2020 Poster Session Structure:
Quantum2020 “Spooky Action at a Distance - a Remote Poster Session” will take place October 29th, 2020 from 3-5:15 PM over 2 sessions (Session A 3PM-4PM, Session B 4:15PM-5:15PM).
Each participant has 3 minutes to present their poster, and will answer the questions from judges for another 3 minutes. Please plan to stay for the full 1 hour to support and listen to your peers' presentations. You are also welcome to listen in the other sessions before/after your session. If you have a direct conflict with one of those sessions, notify us as soon as you know.
This is an interdisciplinary event with a focus on quantum science and engineering! Since judges may be outside your area of expertise, please make your presentation accessible to a broad audience. The judges’ grading rubric places an emphasis on accessibility, so keep this in mind as you prepare your posters.
Six winners will be chosen and each will be awarded 50 PQubits, which is the equivalent of previous PQI poster awards, up to $1000 in conference expenses, or up to $500 in technology goods. For more information on how you can spend your PQubits, please visit pqi.org/unipro.
While priority will be given to students who have not won a poster award before, all are invited to compete. Additionally, undergraduate students are invited to participate and a special award will be given to the most distinct undergraduate presentation.
Please register in the form below. The deadline for registration is Oct 9th. The deadline for poster submissions (pdf upload) is Oct 23rd.
