2018 West Point Quantum Computing Symposium 1-2 November 2018
As nexus points for the fusion of military, academia, and industry, the military academies of the United States are natural centers of gravity for new technologies of strategic significance, and the US Military Academy at West Point has a long tradition of excellence. We hope that this event not only introduces these industry magnates to the possibilities of collaboration with USMA, but allows for the discussion of unique research and leadership opportunities in the quantum computing arena, including sources of funding from industry, access to cutting-edge QC systems from research groups who have constructed prototypes, and guidance from military leadership on avenues of QC research which could benefit the warfighter through intelligence analysis, mission planning, logistics optimization, or possibilities not yet realized.

All discussions are considered ‘off the record’ and non-attribute.

A tentative agenda includes:
