Focused Sessions

The AIP Congress will cover the broad spectrum of academic and industrial physics activities in Australia with up to 20 streams.
As a part of its Scientific Program, the Meeting will hold a number of Focused Sessions consisting of up to 3 - 6 invited talks by eminent speakers on cutting-edge research themes.
We call for proposals for such Focused Sessions.

Precision and Quantum Sensing Workshop (PQS2022)

The PQS workshop aims to bring together researchers and industry experts to discuss Precision Quantum Sensing applications. Focus areas will include precision magnetometry and defence applications in this space.

The following two events fall under the Army Quantum Technology Roadmap. Further details to appear soon...

Army Quantum Technology Workshop

The second in a regular series of workshops where the Army is seeking to engage directly with the Community in order to communicate its interests and intentions in quantum technology, build collaborative networks and relationships, curate its understanding of the quantum technology landscape, and workshop ideas with the Community about how the Army can gain and retain a quantum advantage.

Army Quantum Next Generation pitchfest

Quantum Next Generation 2022 (QNG22) are technology challenges targeting Australia’s next generation of talented postgraduate students, early-career researchers and early-stage start-up entrepreneurs, and Army soldiers and officers. QNG22 aims to embolden, network and develop this next generation and Army teams, whilst also solving an important Army problem. The Pitchfest being held at AIP Congress is the evaluation and showcase of the solutions invented by participating teams.
The specific Challenge for 2022 will be released in the second half of 2022 – stay tuned!
