The 20th anniversary of superconducting qubits: progress and future directions (SQ20th)

Taking the opportunity of the 20th anniversary of the first demonstration of coherent control in a Cooper-pair box, i.e., a charge qubit, at NEC Tsukuba Laboratory, we organize this symposium to celebrate the tremendous progress our research community has made since then and even before. We hope that many of you can join us and enjoy discussions on future directions of the field. The scope of the symposium will be focused on physics and applications of superconducting qubits and circuits, but will cover a wide spectrum of the still-growing research field.
