Member and Partner Events

The Chicago Quantum Exchange organizes events throughout the year to promote academic collaboration and information exchange across the quantum information science community. These events enable researchers and students at our member and partner institutions to learn from one another and to hear from some of the most prominent quantum researchers around the globe.

If you are a CQE member or corporate partner and would like to access these events, contact For information on previous events, visit the CQE calendar.

The CQE regularly hosts workshops dedicated to bringing together leading experts in emerging fields of quantum information science and engineering to discuss interesting and exciting emerging technologies, challenges and opportunities. These workshops are often interactive with substantive discussions and exploration of collaborations.

Highlighted past workshops: 

The CQE Seminar Series consists of 60-minute presentations by thought leaders and prominent researchers from across the world. The series, which rotates among CQE member universities and national laboratories, invites these individuals to present the latest research and findings to CQE members and corporate partners. Participation from CQE members and partners is encouraged.

The virtual Quantum Employer Spotlight series provides opportunities for trainees to hear from experts in the quantum field about their institutional QISE strategies and hiring needs, and for employers to connect virtually with prospective interns and employees.

Past Quantum Employer Spotlights include:

The annual Chicago Quantum Recruiting Forum brings together current quantum leaders from both academia and industry with the rising generation of quantum scientists and engineers. This forum is an outstanding opportunity for students and trainees across the STEM disciplines interested in pursuing quantum information through physics, computing, or engineering to meet CQE members and partners who are recruiting.
