Bitkom’s Quantum Summit on 26 and 27 May 2021 will be a major European event to experience the latest quantum developments and connect with decision-makers and innovation leaders from the industry, as well as politics, academia, startups, and public administration. The attendees of #quantumsummit21 can look forward to a broad and carefully curated program that combines best-practice presentations, inspiring panels and interactive workshops by leading specialists.

This Call for Speakers reaches leading experts from companies, R&D departments and research institutes. We aim to encourage a wide-range of submissions with solution-focused approaches. Our council of experts will review and evaluate all submissions with a sharp view on quality. Bitkom will make the final decision on any submission based on the expert council’s recommendations.

A strong focus of #quantumsummit21 lies on practical applications of quantum technologies. It will therefore be an important criterion in the evaluation of the submitted abstracts. For the same reason, contributions presented together with a client or partner are also preferred. Please also note that Quantum Summit is not a platform for marketing presentations.

The deadline for submissions is 8 March 2021. Abstracts may be submitted and presented in English.
