Opportunities to sponsor at ASC 2022

HELP US TO MAKE AN EVEN BETTER EVENT WITH YOU

Sponsors and exhibitors are integral to the Applied Superconductivity Conference providing much valued information to the conference as a source of networks and knowledge for the participants, and it is also a great place for meeting the talent pool of upcoming graduates and early career researchers, especially at this time of skills shortages.

On behalf of the Applied Superconductivity community, it is our pleasure to invite you to sponsor the 2022 Applied Superconductivity Conference to be held at the Hawaii Convention Center in Hawaii from October 23 – 28, 2022.

The Applied Superconductivity Conference (ASC) will be the biggest and most diverse scientific meeting of the international applied superconductivity community in 2022. The ASC attracts the key leaders and researchers in all the key fields that support and develop superconducting technologies around the globe. It provides a unique forum for discussions within specialist topic areas and opportunities for researchers from academia, government, industry, and the commercial sector to keep up to date in areas such as quantum engineering and superconducting electronics, materials and large-scale applications.

The four-and-a-half-day program includes plenary lectures, parallel sessions, poster sessions, exhibitions, professional development, public outreach, student engagement, a welcome reception, and a conference dinner, all of which provide a variety of settings for delegates to increase and update their knowledge.

We hope that you will consider being a highly valued sponsor to our conference and look forward to welcoming you to Hawaii later in 2022.

Please find a full list of sponsorship and advertising opportunities here.
