Engaging sessions with world-class speakers.

The exciting scientific programme – co-convened with the Henry Royce Institute’s Atoms to Devices Research Area and the UK EPSRC Materials for Quantum Network – will cover subjects from fundamental and applied physics, chemistry, and materials science. Parallel symposia with invited talks, and oral and poster presentations will cover a range of topics in the areas of materials discovery, characterisation, modelling and simulation.

The topics covered by the conference have continued to evolve to reflect the cutting edge of the research landscape. To reflect the significant international interest in quantum technologies ICANS30 welcomes research directed towards these applications within the topics covered. ICANS30 will run three parallel symposia during the conference with the entire conference coming together for the Mott Lecture and Plenary talks. Each symposium will run a programme based around stimulating topics.
