NOTICE: LEAPS meets QT Conference POSTPONED TO MAY 15 - 22, 2022

Dear colleagues
In view of the evolution of the COVID-19 disease, we have decided to postpone the Conference "LEAPS meets Quantum Technology" to a new date: May 15 - 22, 2022. Among the reasons for this decision, let me mention reinforcing the prevention, taking into account the foreseen difficulties for traveling in the next future around Europe, and avoiding losing part of the fees.
I am sorry for any inconvenience this may cause, and I want, on behalf of LEAPS, warmly thank you for all the work you have dedicated up to now to the success of this first LEAPS conference. Most of this work will directly apply to the event in the new date.
And I want to thank also the speakers who have given their availability for participating to the program, which looks extremely interesting. We strongly hope they all will be available for the future rescheduled conference.
My best wishes
Caterina Biscari
LEAPS Chair, LEAPS 2020 Conference Chair
