Due to the recent events with COVID-19, we are considering the possibility of holding PfQ2 solely online as a virtual workshop. An online virtual workshop will include posters, talks, and anticipated panels. Our experience last year with live streaming and recording was a good one. If our event date is during a time that group gatherings still prove to risk others' health, we are confident we can use live streaming and recording to hold PfQ2 virtually. You can find talks from PfQ1 on our site here. Given that there is no registration fee, you can safely register without concern about a refund if the workshop is canceled or postponed. We will update this page with further information as we have it.
The Photonics for Quantum 2 Workshop (PfQ2) convenes international experts, industry, and students in quantum photonic information science and technology in support of efforts to fulfill the promise of the Quantum 2.0 Revolution.
The workshop features over 30 invited talks on quantum topics spanning applications, experiments, quantum photonic integrated circuits, materials, integration between dissimilar material systems, devices, and concepts to support a national quantum foundry. It also includes a meeting for education researchers and curriculum developers from physics, engineering, and computing who focus on quantum content. The meeting will develop priorities for new curriculum development and research on student learning that aligns with contemporary quantum topics. Also added to this year’s agenda is the Women in Quantum: Increasing diversity in industry and academia Breakfast Panel. This unique event will create a community among women in this area and increase the outreach efforts of future women researchers.
PfQ2 is free for attendees, including registration, all talks, meals, panels, and a job fair. The workshop is partially funded by a National Science Foundation grant that supports an RIT-led team to propose an NSF Quantum Leap Challenge Institute. It is also funded by RIT’s Future Photon Initiative and corporate sponsors.
To assist undergraduate and graduate students with travel costs, we have introduced sponsored travel stipends. We hope that through these sponsored travel stipends, we can help directly facilitate relationships between students and industry while supporting the student’s extended learning at the workshop.
Due to generous contributions from RIT and our sponsors, there is no registration fee.
For further information about this workshop, email Robyn Rosechandler (firstname.lastname@example.org).

Student Travel Stipends
New this year! Thanks to our generous corporate sponsors, we are offering a new program to assist undergraduate and graduate students with travel costs through $200 stipends per student. We hope that through these sponsored travel stipends, we can help directly facilitate relationships between students and industry while supporting the student’s extended learning at the workshop. Students can apply for the travel stipends through our registration form. Student travel stipends are first come, first serve and reserved for students traveling more than 50 miles to Rochester.
Air and Ground Travel
The nearest airport is the Rochester International Airport (ROC). Cabs, Lyft, and Uber are available in Rochester.
Other area hotels:
Due to generous contributions from RIT and our sponsors, the workshop will provide continental breakfast and lunch each day of the workshop. Evening events include dinner.

Sponsorship opportunities for Photonics for Quantum 2 (PfQ2) are now available!
All sponsors will have tabletop exhibit space. Higher levels of sponsorship include breaks and meals, and participation in the expanded workforce and education events. Platinum sponsors will be able to give a talk in front of all the attendees this year. Each sponsorship level will include travel stipends to assist undergraduate and graduate students with travel costs. We hope that through these sponsored travel stipends, we can help directly facilitate relationships between students and industry while supporting the student’s extended learning at the workshop.
Please contact Robyn Rosechandler for more information on sponsorship levels.
