Workshop Structure

• QA6 will be hybrid with participants joining in person in Kigali and online. Also unique to QA6 is that pedagogical presentations as well as a large number of talks from industry practitioners in quantum phenomena and, particularly, quantum computing will be a significant part of the conference.

• QA6 will feature cutting edge research talks from invited speakers. There will also be contributed talks and poster sessions (both online and in-person).

• Monday 12th to Friday 16th of September 2022 (Five days)

• Sessions will be 9 am to 5 pm each day, except on the final day when we end at lunch time. Wednesday will also be a half day as we leave the afternoon free for sightseeing and hold a banquet in the evening.

• Postgraduate students, postdocs, and early career researchers are particularly encouraged to participate and will have opportunities to present their work in posters.
