Panel 7.1: Quantum Repeaters: Short-To Medium-Term Prospects
Dr. Stephanie Simmons is the founder and chief quantum officer at Photonic, and a world-leading expert in quantum technologies, silicon spin-photon interfaces, condensed matter spin dynamics and control, silicon integrated photonics, and quantum optics. Stephanie the co-chair of the advisory board to Canada’s National Quantum Strategy, a research chair in Quantum Nanoelectronics, as well as a Canadian Institute for Advanced Research Fellow in Quantum Information Science.
Her work on developing CMOS-compatible, scalable, quantum technologies was awarded a Physics World Top Ten Breakthrough of the Year of twice. She earned her doctorate in materials science at Oxford University as a Clarendon Scholar and a double degree (Pure Mathematics and Mathematical Physics) from the University of Waterloo. She was a postdoctoral research fellow of the electrical engineering department at the University of New South Wales in Australia and completed her junior research fellowship and Glasstone research fellowship at St. John’s College in Oxford University. She joined Simon Frasier University as a Canada research chair in Quantum Nanoelectronics.
Stephanie is an international speaker with over 30 publications, 60 keynote and panel talks, and numerous patents. She has been a reviewer for Nature, Science, Physical Review, NSERC, CRC, and more. Her work has been covered by the New York Times, CBC, BBC, Wired Magazine, Scientific American, the New Scientist, and the New York Times.
IQT New York 2023 is devoted to three days of coverage of quantum cybersecurity, quantum networking and quantum sensors. This must-attend event will be held October 24-26 at the Conference Center in New York City with a new sky-level exhibition space overlooking the Hudson River and the Intrepid Aircraft Carrier.
IQT New York is a 100% in-person only conference, offering 30+ sessions and 100+ speakers, and is New York’s quantum event. In addition to our usual topics, IQT New York 2023 will feature panels on the hottest areas in quantum such as Quantum AI, QKD-over-Satellite, Quantum Sensing in Healthcare, and the Emergence of the Quantum Internet. There will also be a new session on the Manufacturing of Quantum Systems.
Attendees at IQT New York 2023 will leave the event with the deepest understanding of the future of quantum technology. This conference brings together corporate management, entrepreneurs, end users, technology providers, infrastructure partners, researchers and investors who are looking for business opportunities in the quantum ecosystem. IQT New York 2023 takes place October 24-26 at The Conference Center, 636 11th Ave. (between 46th & 47th St.) in New York City.
