The technological progress of the 20th century was driven by electronics and photonics. At the beginning of the 21st century there is already substantial evidence that the use of coherence and entanglement of composite quantum mechanical systems will propel technological applications. Indeed, today quantum mechanics is no longer restricted to physics but plays an important role in many other disciplines such as chemistry, electrical engineering, and mathematics. Quantum Science has emerged as a common denominator that encompasses all key elements of these previously separate disciplines. The purpose of this conference is to assemble a number of leading scientists from various fields to present a wide range of quantum physics and technological fields which are affected by quantum technology, from fundamental research (e.g. superconducting devices and biology) to real-world applications (e.g. communicati ons, metrology and semiconductor technology). Additionally, there will be a panel discussion on the economic perspectives of quantum technologies.
