IQTC Meeting 2022

We are glad to announce that the IQTC Meeting will take place on Tuesday 19th and Wednesday 20th July 2022 of Universitat de Barcelona.

The event allows the IQTC members to share the findings obtained from their research. The aim of the event is to broaden the views on topics of interest to the community.

IQTC Ph.D. Students and young researchers are encouraged to submit their posters!

Registration is required: registration form
