ICQNS 2023

International Conference on Quantum Nanoscience

October 10 - 13, 2023
​Seoul, South Korea



Bringing the quantum nanoscience community together

There are many conferences that cover subfields of quantum nanoscience. However, as far as the organizers know, there is currently no conference that brings this broad community under one roof. With this conference, we are bringing together leading experts and young scientists from all around the globe to share recent advances and have in-depth discussions on these exciting research topics.


Besides the invited speakers listed below, we will have several contributed speakers in each session chosen from the submitted abstracts. You can also participate to the conference with a poster presentation or simply as a listener.


We ask you to kindly register your interest to attend this conference.

At this point, we simply need to know how many people to expect in order to reserve proper facilities. Later, we will offer a discount on the registration fee for early registrants. Thank you in advance for registering!


The local hosting will be provided by the Center for Quantum Nanoscience, which is located at Ewha Womans University in the heart of Seoul and is funded through the Institute for Basic Science. QNS has long-term expertise in investigating, assembling, and controlling quantum spin systems at surfaces. This relatively new topic in quantum nanoscience will be covered as one session in this conference.

from Europe, USA, Asia, and Australia



More speakers will be updated


Opening Session: Tutorial Talks

Andreas Heinrich, Center for Quantum Nanoscience (QNS), South Korea

Quantum-coherent nanoscience

Andrea Morello, University of New South Wales (UNSW), Australia:

Quantum Spins in Semiconductors

Poster Session

Session 1: Spin qubits in color centers and dopants

David Awschalom, University of Chicago, USA:

Quantum Properties of Color Centers in Silicon Carbide

Andrea Morello, University of New South Wales (UNSW), Australia:

Quantum-Coherent Control of Dopants in Silicon

Session 2: Spin qubits in quantum dots

Seigo Tarucha, RIKEN, Japan:


Guido Burkard, University of Konstanz, Germany:


Session 3: Quantum control in molecular qubits

Danna Freedman, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), USA:


Harry Anderson, University of Oxford, UK:


Session 4: Quantum surface science

Surfaces of materials offer the opportunity to use scanning probe techniques to measure their properties. This can be combined with atomic-scale manipulation to build structures with atomic-scale precision. Recently it has become possible to perform quantum-coherent manipulation of atoms on surfaces.

Yujeong Bae, Center for Quantum Nanoscience (QNS), South Korea:


Jascha Repp, University of Regensburg, Germany


Session 5: Quantum limits of mechanical motion

Ania Jayich, University of California, Santa Barbara (UCSB), USA:

quantum sensing with hybrid sensors

Session 6: Quantum nanophotonics

Ewha Womans University has a beautiful campus that is centrally located in the capital city of South Korea. It offers interesting architecture, green spaces and great facilities to hold a conference.

This is a very central location in Korea, only about 1 hour from the international airport in Incheon. Incheon airport has excellent connections to almost all parts of the world.

The weather in October is usually very nice with temperatures of 10°C-20°C, plenty of sunshine, and relatively low humidity.
