Collaborative Travel Funding

We offer RQS students and postdocs on-going travel funding in support of collaborations across RQS universities and teams. RQS students and postdocs can apply for this funding at any time. 


Quantum Simulation Conference (QSim)

QSim is an international annual conference on quantum simulation that aims to bridge theory and experiment, bringing together physicists, engineers, chemists, material scientists, mathematicians, and computer scientists working at the forefront of quantum simulation and related problems that include applications, algorithms, verification, noise, scaling, etc. for both analog and digital approaches. This conference stimulates interactions across disciplines and unveils new connections between seemingly disparate aspects of physics.


Annual Workshop

The institute workshop brings together the RQS leadership and team of faculty, postdocs, students, and staff to share our research, education and outreach, and other accomplishments; identify new areas of collaboration; strategically plan for upcoming activities; and identify new areas of collaboration across RQS universities, industry, and government.

RQS Seminar

The monthly RQS seminar features speakers from a variety of academic, government, and industry research groups. All seminars are presented in a hybrid format and can be viewed by RQS team members and members of the wider quantum simulation community.
