UofT Conferences

2023 Q-Site Conference: Sept. 29-Oct. 1, 2023

Quantum information science and technology (QIST) is a rising multidisciplinary field with promises to revolutionize many fields including cryptography and communications, simulation and material discovery, sensing and new materials, and computing. This is currently challenging engineers, physicists, computer scientists, mathematicians, economists, and policymakers worldwide to push forward, collaborate, and make breakthrough discoveries and new policies. This has prompted many institutions to start offering QIST related courses and programs at the undergraduate levels.

Q-SITE engages undergraduate students in QIST by inviting researchers and educators from academia and industry to give talks, panels, and tutorials on cutting edge research topics and industry-leading applications. The Q-SITE program is specifically designed to jump start attendees’ quantum curiosity and careers – from the ground up.

Other Conferences

Canadian Undergraduate Physics Conference (CUPC)

The Canadian Undergraduate Physics Conference (CUPC) is an annual event organized by and for Canadian physics students. It is hosted by a different university each year, usually held over an extended weekend in October (4 days). Physics students from across Canada meet at CUPC to present oral or poster contributions on various topics related to physics, to attend specially invited lectures, tour local research facilities, meet with representatives from participating institutions that offer graduate degrees in physics, and meet with a representative of the CAP Executive to learn more about the association and its support of physics in Canada.

The 2023 CUPC is being hosted in person at the University of Waterloo from October 26-29, 2023! Visit for detailed information.

Canadian Conference for Undergraduate Women in Physics 2024

CCUWiP is an undergraduate conference that provides a safe space for underrepresented groups in physics to present their research and learn from leading physicists.

Save the Date: From January 19 to January 21, 2024, the 11th CCUWiP will be hosted in Montréal by McGill University and the Université de Montréal. This will be the first edition in Montréal since the very first one, hosted in 2014. For more information, please visit the CCUWiP website.

Physics Undergraduate Conference at Western

PhUnC is an annual undergraduate physics conference organized by the Physics and Astronomy Students’ Association (PASA) of Western University. Throughout the day, delegates will participate in various events such as poster presentations, oral presentations, a keynote talk, research panel, and physics trivia. It is an excellent opportunity for undergraduate students to present their work on a summer research project, honours thesis, or any physics topic of interest, including interdisciplinary physics research.

This year’s conference will take place in person on March 22, 2024. All undergraduate students with an interest in physics are invited; we are excited to welcome delegates from across Ontario (and beyond)! Visit to learn more and register!
