MQC Entanglement 2024 (8/5/24 - 8/6/24)

Updated: 3 days ago

The Midwest Quantum Collaboratory (MQC) will hold their third annual "Entanglement" conference on August 5-6, 2024 at Michigan State University in East Lansing, MI. The meeting has two complementary themes: creating new frontiers for entanglement applications and fostering university-industry-funding “entanglement” needed to create next-generation quantum-information science and engineering (QISE).


A diverse array of programming is planned, including invited lectures, poster sessions, smaller breakout group discussions, panel discussions, and town-hall style meetings. MQC members will present their most recent QISE results and ideas (mostly as posters) on a broad range of topics, including established QISE systems as well as emergent QISE directions in semiconductors, ultrafast laser spectroscopy, nanotechnology, and quantum chemistry. In addition to posters, several QISE vision talks will be presented, and there will be ample time reserved for cross-sector and cross-discipline interactions between MQC members, students, companies, and funding agencies.

Invited Speakers

Carl Dukatz, Accenture

Kyle Castoria, EeroQ

Sebastian Wicklein, Fraunhofer USA

Paul Quayle, Great Lakes Crystal Technologies

Dani Couger, Lockheed-Martin

Johannes Pollanen, Michigan State University

Jonas Becker, Michigan State University

Tim Rogers, IonQ

Patrick Scully, Quantum Corridor

Mark Wolf, NVIDIA

Zubin Jacob, Purdue University

Tiancong Zhu, Purdue University

Kortny Rolston-Duce, Quantinuum

Di Liang, University of Michigan

Shankari Rajagopal, University of Michigan

Date and Time

Monday, August 5 at 8:00 AM to Tuesday, August 6 at 3:00 PM.


Lectures will take place at the Facility for Rare Isotope Beams (FRIB), Room 1300 at Michigan State University, East Lansing, MI.


Registration is open to faculty from MQC member institutions, their research groups, and invited external guests only. Registration is free and includes lunches (8/5 and 8/6) and dinner (8/5).

We encourage all participants to present their most progressive QISE ideas in the form of posters. Contributions across a variety of fields and subdomains are appropriate, including (but not limited to) quantum computing, fundamental chemistry/physics for QISE, light-driven QISE, quantum photonics, novel quantum materials, quantum communications, quantum sensing, and open quantum systems.

The Registration deadline is Monday, July 15.


A discounted hotel rate is available at The Graduate Hotel. Attendees from University of Michigan and Purdue University should contact their university's contact person (for UM:, for PU: to reserve a room.

Non-university attendees can use the following link to book your hotel:

The hotel discount will be available until Monday, July 15.


Parking for cars at the conference is available at Ramp #1 (Shaw Lane) and Ramp #3 (Wharton Center). You will need to reserve a parking pass for each day you park at the conference. The parking pass reservation should be made prior to parking in the lot, and the pass will be associated with your license plate. Parking pass reservations can be made at the following links:


The conference is hosted by the MSU Center for Quantum Computing, Science, and Engineering (MSU-Q). For general questions regarding the conference, please reach out to Jared Weidman (
