About QuARC

QuARC – the QSEC’s annual research conference – provides QSEC members an opportunity to engage with MIT students and faculty across the Institute and gain insight into their latest research.

This year’s conference will feature Keynote Addresses from eminent figures at MIT and an industrial organization in quantum information science, as well as presentations and posters on the latest results from MIT faculty, students, and staff in quantum information science and engineering.

QuARC 2023 is hosted by MIT’s Center for Quantum Engineering (CQE) in partnership with MIT’s Interdisciplinary Quantum Information Science and Engineering (iQuISE) student organization. We are delighted to welcome QSEC members to meet the CQE!

Topics that are covered in QuARC 2023 are…

  • Superconducting Quantum Systems
  • Solid-State Defect Engineering
  • Atomic, Molecular, and Optical Physics
  • Low-Dimensional Materials and Devices
  • Quantum Algorithms and Machine Learning
  • Quantum Sensing and Imaging
  • Optics and Photonics

NOTE that QuARC 2023 will be held in conjunction with MARC 2023, which will take place on January 24th-25th. MIT students and faculty–as well as industry affiliates–are welcome and encouraged to attend both events and experience the diversity of research that MIT has to offer.

Students who are attending both QuARC and MARC are expected to submit a poster at QuARC and are highly encouraged to submit a poster to MARC. They may use the same poster for both events. Students attending both QuARC and MARC must register for both events.

Please join us in advancing the academic and industrial frontiers of quantum science and engineering!
