The annual PQI2020 poster session took place live on April 17th, 2020. 15 students shared the latest updates in their research in quantum science and engineering followed by questions from judges. Awards of 50 PQubits ($500/$1000 in tech/conference expenses) were distributed to the top 6 presenters.
The PQI2020 poster session was held remotely over a Zoom call with poster presenters and judges and streamed live to Youtube for the PQI community to attend and discuss in the live chat. A huge thank you to all who contributed and took time out of their chaotic lives to be PQ-engaged with us. We had the help of 29 judges for the recorded presentation round, and 6 judges sit in for the 15 finalists. A special thank you to our live judges, Prof. David Waldeck, Prof. Rongchao Jin, Prof. Nathan Youngblood, Prof. Andrew Daley, Prof. Kaushik Dayal, and previous poster award winners, Dacen Waters and Jierui Liang.

Following a round of remote judging, the 15 highest scored undergraduates, graduate students, and postdocs will present for a live audience. PQI members that are not presenting or judging are invited to stream the event on pqi.org/pqi2020.
