Virtual Event Platform

The virtual platform is designed to facilitate scientific exchange, with a strong focus on networking, and to help host poster sessions online.

The platform offers two spaces:

  • A 3D environment featuring an auditorium for live talks, poster galleries where posters are displayed on virtual walls, an exhibition area where you can find out more about the Quantum Alliance and the participating cluster/centers though various media on display.
  • The 2D space features the same auditorium, a networking area with dedicated rountables, and poster presenters have their own virtual space. This is where the networking magic happens. Once in the platform, you simply join a table and start a conversation with your peers. It is that easy.

You will also be able to switch between spaces quite easily and the platform is bowser-based, so no installation is necessary.

Virtual Poster Session

  • Each cluster/center will select up to 15 of the submitted posters to participate at the event. You will be contacted directly by the office of your respective cluster/center regarding acceptance.
  • After receiving the poster acceptance confirmation, submit your poster and additional media following the poster submission guidelines by 4 November 2020 the latest.
  • All poster presenters will have the opportunity to present a short (one-minute) “elevator pitch” of their poster in a joint session.
  • Please follow the file naming guidelines for all submitted media.


Can I participate if I will not present a poster?
Yes, the event is open to all PhDs and PostDocs from the clusters and centers part of the Quantum Alliance. The focus lies on networking and bringing the quantum science community together, therefore we encourage you to join the event.

My submitted abstract was rejected. Can I still attend the event?
Yes. Even if your poster was not accepted for this event, we strongly encourage you join your peers, as you will still have the opportunity to get insight into their research and to exchange ideas.
