ROME — Innovare Advancement Center, 592 Hangar Road, will host the 4th annual Quantum Information Science Workshop (Q4I) now through Thursday.

Q4I is a global connectivity initiative to build an open ecosystem of government, academic, and industry collaborators that are shaping the future of quantum innovation. 

The workshop is hosted by the Air Force Research Laboratory and the Air Force Office of Scientific Research, at the Griffiss Institute’s Innovare Advancement Center in partnership with state Technology Enterprise Corporation and The State University of New York.

Participants at Q4I are hearing from thought leaders, top researchers, industry executives, higher education leaders, and students as they showcase different pathways to engage in quantum information science. 

“We are so pleased to once again welcome trailblazers in the quantum community to the annual Q4I workshop where they will learn, collaborate, and network with fellow experts about innovations in the field,” said Michael Hayduk, deputy director for the Air Force Research Laboratory — Information Directorate. “The Air Force continuously supports this workshop because it is an efficient and effective platform on which to build our nation’s quantum capacity, as part of a global initiative to build an open ecosystem of government, academic, and industry collaborations.”

This year’s program features two keynote speakers. The first speaker was Jungsang Kim, professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Physics and Computer Science at Duke University. Kim has led several collaborative research and development projects at the frontier of foundational quantum computing technologies at Duke since 2004. The second speaker is Wojciech Kozlowski, Quantum Network Engineer at QuTech. At QuTech, Kozlowski leads the institute’s quantum network software stack engineering and full stack integration efforts.

He is also co-chair of the QIRG at the IRTF.

Attendees of Q4I will also get to experience technical breakout sessions that focus on quantum networking and computing, with industry leaders from NASA, IBM, Google, Rigetti, Honeywell, SUNY Polytechnic Institute in Marcy, Cornell University, University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, and Delft University of Technology.

“The Griffiss Institute is thrilled to host the fourth annual Q4I workshop at the Innovare Advancement Center right here in Central New York,” said Heather Hage, president and CEO of the Griffiss Institute. “The work being done here this week advances our mission to open the crossroads between talent and technology for our partners. You can genuinely feel the excitement as the best and brightest converge to share their proudest work and look to the future to ensure America remains on the cutting edge.”

Quantum networking and computing workshops at Q4I will range from benchmarking and error mitigation to machine learning and chemical applications. Researchers will present their work during poster sessions and participants will have the opportunity to ask questions directly of Department of Defense officials.

The workshop will also present the opportunity for potential partners to learn how and when to collaborate and contract with the Air Force Research Laboratory on their work. Participants will discover how to navigate process, procedure, and productive paths toward bringing their concepts to life for both military and commercial uses.

“We’re proud to support the Q4I workshop because it aligns perfectly with our mission to advise clients how to use technology to meet their goals and achieve real outcomes,” said Kevin Owens, president and CEO of NYSTEC. “It’s in our best interest – and the best interest of the nation – to empower current and future clients with the tools they need to successfully bring quantum solutions to market, in partnership with the Air Force and other players that the Griffiss Institute brings to the table.”
