Quantum Optics and Information Meeting

22 - 23 April 2021

YouTube Channel Pre-recorded Talks Posters

Many thanks to our speakers and attendees. Hope to see you next year...


The main goal of these series of meetings is to gather the scientists and students who are interested in the fields of quantum optics and information and create an open environment to support colloboration. In 2016, the series of meetings started with the name KOBİT$\class{p-dark}{|0\rangle}$ in Hacettepe University (Ankara) which followed by the meetings in İzmir Institute of Technology (İzmir-2017), in Mimar Sinan Fine Arts University (Istanbul-2018), in Ankara University (Ankara, 2019) and as an online meeting organized by İzmir Institute of Technology (Online-2020).

KOBİT$\class{p-dark}{|5\rangle}$ will be hosted online by Bilkent, METU, and Hacettepe Universities on 22-23 April 2021.
