About

The Northern Quantum Meeting (NMQ) is an event bringing together researchers working in quantum-related areas across the North of the UK. The event format facilitates free discussion among participants and prioritises presentations from early career researchers (PhD students and postdocs) to give them the opportunity to present their results to a wide audience. The meeting is an opportunity to nurture the network of research groups in different quantum areas in Northern England and to foster collaborations.

The next meeting, NQM2, will be held at Lancaster University, which offers a pleasant and convenient setting on a modern campus situated three miles from Lancaster town centre. It will be held in the newly-refurbished Physics Department.

A full program will be published soon on our program page. This one-day event will begin at 10amĀ and conclude by 5pm. An informal social event (pub trip!) will follow the meeting.

The venue

The meeting will be held in room C36 in the Physics Department at Lancaster University. It is marked 'PHS' on this map.

Getting to Lancaster University

There are clear instructions for arriving by a range of different means on this page.

Lancaster University campus enjoys excellent transport links, being a short bus or taxi journey from Lancaster station which is on the West Coast Main Line (2.5 hours direct from London Euston via Birmingham, and 2 hours direct from Glasgow, Edinburgh and Leeds).
The campus is also situated directly adjacent to the M6 for easy access by car. Conference attendees arriving by car will need to park in one of the visitor's carparks, and purchase a parking ticket.
Lancaster University has recently undergone a multi-million pound investment in general refurbishment of the campus and the building of new Chemistry, Physics and Engineering departments. Quantum science is a major focus of the university, as demonstrated by the recent establishment of a Quantum Technology Centre.
