Large-Mass Quantum Interferometry in Microgravity

Bremen (Germany)

The workshop will bring together experts in the fields of matter wave interferometry, levitated optomechanics, and microgravity research to explore prove of principle and technology testing capabilities for future quantum technologies in space based on large-mass matter wave interferometry. Therefore the workshop aligns perfectly with the agenda of WG2&3 of the COST action QTSpace.

Next steps towards a quantum physics platform in space

Olomouc (Czech Republic)

The goal of the meeting is to foster the formation of a consortium to push the future implementation of a space mission to test the foundations of physics. Particular effort will be put on discussing necessary technology developments in the handling of high-mass test particles and in assuring the required environmental conditions for macroscopic quantum experiments in space.

Quantum Processing of Big Data: from quantum computing to earth observation

Rome (Italy)

The focus of the workshop is on the application of Quantum Computing for downstream data processing and Earth Observation data exploitation. It aims to prepare the ground for the opportunities that will be presented when the quantum community will be able to produce software for quantum-enhanced optimisation problems of direct use in big data management. Together with Machine Learning, Quantum Computing has the potential to be a game-changer in data science and applications.

Focus session "Quantum Physics in Space"

Noordwijk (The Netherlands)

In the context of future space-based experiments using macrosopic quantum systems for testing the foundations of quantum physics, this focus session is dedicated to the state of the art in ground-based experiments, potential future experiments and the case for space of those efforts. We will have four leading scientists to report on levitated optomechanics and cantilever experiments as test beds for fundamental theories such as quantum mechanics and gravity, as well as on theory proposals for such experimental tests.
