2022 Silicon Quantum Electronics Workshop, Orford, Quebec, Canada

2 October 2022, 7:00 PM - 6 October 2022, 5:00 PM

Orford, Quebec, Canada


SiQEW is almost here!

In less than one week, you'll be mixing and mingling with other researchers from around the world; over 150 participants from Europe, Japan, Korea, China, Australia, the U.S. and Canada will attend this year’s workshop.

All events will happen in one convenient location, so you'll have more time to network and build relationships than ever before.

Update your profile today at SIQEW 2022. Be sure to upload your photo—networking works so much better when people know what faces to look for in a crowd.

How's the weather?

At this time of the year, almost anything can happen—from warm, sunshiny days to snow. Bring layers that you can put on or take off to stay warm, dry or cool. While temperatures generally linger around 279-289K, we've seen them go as high as 298K and then drop to 273k overnight—be prepared! (t-shirt, long-sleeved shirt, sweater, windbreaker/raincoat, jacket, pants, shorts)


Mittens, knit cap... and a bathing suit!

The hotel has a swimming pool and spa for you to enjoy during your stay. The site is located in the midst of nature, so don't be surprised if you see deer or wild turkeys wandering the grounds.

At the top of Orford - wear good walking shoes.

Your mountain adventure on October 3rd will deliver you spectacular views of Quebec's breathtaking autumn colours—and maybe the mysterious sea serpent believed to inhabit nearby Lake Memphremagog! 

Plan on hiking to the summit? Wear good hiking boots. Yes, you can ride the gondola, but it's rocky and uneven at the top and can be much cooler and windier than it is at the bottom - grab that extra layer!

"Une poutine s'il vous plait." (One "poutine* please)

Order up Quebec's signature dish of french fries with gravy and cheese if you have the chance to hang out at the Bistro bar at Estrimont Suites & Spas.
