QD2024 is the twelfth International Conference on Quantum Dots, the leading conference on quantum dot research.

It all started in Munich (QD2000) and since then has travelled the world, visiting USA (QD2012), Canada (QD2004, QD2018), Japan (QD2002), Korea (QD2008, QD2016) and Europe (QD2004, QD2006, QD2010, QD2014).

In 2020, the conference was held online due to the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic. We are pleased to announce that the conference will now return in-person to Munich where it started more than twenty years ago, bringing together the world’s leading quantum dot researchers in the epitaxial, colloidal, and lateral quantum dot communities, working in experiment and theory.

Continuing from QD2020, QD2024 returns with the expanded scope of the conference, which includes emergent themes, such as nanoclusters, nanoplatelets and localized excitons in 2D-materials and colour centres in wide-gap insulators, with a special emphasis on colloidal quantum dots.
