Udson Mendes, Team Leader, Quantum Computing, CMC Microsystems; will speak at IQT Canada 2023
Udson Mendes has a PhD in Physics from the University of Campinas in Brazil. He was a postdoctoral fellow at the Laboratoire Pierre Aigrain at the École Normale Supérieure de Paris, and then at the Institut Quantique at the Université de Sherbrooke. Dr. Mendes’ research has been focusing on the development of quantum technologies ranging from quantum hardware to quantum algorithms. Since joining CMC, he created the world’s first cost-sharing fabrication service for superconducting devices and helped to train over 170 high qualified personnel in CMC’s quantum workshops. Moreover, Dr. Mendes leverages his expertise to lead a team of quantum scientists working on applications ranging from cybersecurity to protein design to cancer diagnosis.
This event is Canada’s Quantum Computing Event, focusing on Ecosystems for Quantum Readiness. A number of vertical topics encompassing more than 30 panels and talks from over 80 speakers will provide attendees with a deep understanding on state-of-the-art developments of the future quantum ecosystems as well as the current impact of quantum computing technologies.
The conference brings together corporate management, entrepreneurs, end users, technology providers, infrastructure partners, researchers and investors who are working on the current future developments of the quantum ecosystem. IQT Canada is organized by 3DR Holdings, IQT Research, INTRIQ, and the Governments of both Canada and Quebec. The June conference will be an “in-person” event to ensure maximum networking and discussion and will take place at Centre Mont-Royal in Montréal (Québec), Canada.
