Workshop 1: Joint Workshop 3-5 August 2022

Quantum Space Engineering and the Space Quantum Internet

UPDATE 2022-08-19: The INSQT WS1 organisers would like to thank all those who participated in the event, either in-person or online, making it a tremendous success. We hope that it was both productive and enjoyable, especially for those who were able to travel to Glasgow. We have been “catching our breath” since the end of the workshop but will try to process the recorded talks and post those with permission soon. Our attention now turns to maintaining the momentum garnered through WS1, especially with Research Exchanges and the next set of workshops (WS2/3 and mini). We will also endeavour to progress with the onboarding process of new members.

The INSQT is pleased to announce that the 1st INSQT Workshop will be held on Wednesday 3rd to Friday 5th August 2022 on the 9th floor of the Technology Innovation Centre, University of Strathclyde, Glasgow, UK.

The 1st Workshop will identify key topics or challenges, stimulate cross-community interaction, and facilitate future research exchanges between INSQT members. Attendance will be free. There will be some funding available to support travel costs of INSQT members; you may indicate in your application if you would like to apply for funding.

Enjoy Glasgow While You’re Here!

Glasgow is known as the friendliest city in the world — we encourage you to enjoy it while you’re here! We’ve made a wee guide of fun food and drinks that we encourage you to enjoy in your spare time!

Take a stroll around these can’t-miss landmarks that make Glasgow so unique, and enjoy the fun activities, eateries and entertainment that sit just outside our doorstep here at the University of Strathclyde.

Given the nature of the INSQT’s main mission of encouraging networking and collaboration, we encourage you to arrive early or stay on late; we are very keen to get the most out of our time together, and for you to get the most of your time in Glasgow. We will be very happy to welcome you to our department, make introductions to local organisations, etc., and would even be happy to organise supplementary sessions before or after the main event. We are open to suggestions on this and welcome your ideas and input.
