This is the first iteration of a new workshop series on the subject of Radiation Impact on Superconducting Qubits (RISQ) that will bring together the broader QIS and particle physics communities to assess the effects of radiation and cosmic rays on superconducting solid-state qubits, and development of the tools needed to address the problem. The workshop will take place at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory on May 30-31, 2024 and will feature two days of invited talks, detailed discussions, and tours of dedicated lab facilities for addressing these issues. Tours will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis, so please register as soon as possible and indicate that you would like a tour if interested. For those who do not attend tours, space will be provided for working discussions.

On May 29, 2024, a related satellite workshop will be held on the subject of GEANT4/G4CMP development for the modeling of energy dissipation in solid-state systems. The registration form includes a question as to whether you intend to come to this satellite workshop day, but separate registration will be required (instructions to be circulated at a later date).

Alongside this workshop, we will hold a ribbon cutting for the Quantum Underground Instrumentation Experimental Testbed (QUIET), the newly-commissioned QSC underground QIS facility at Fermilab. The exact time of this ribbon cutting has not been decided.

For those who will be unable to attend in person, but still wish to participate, a zoom will be provided (upon registration).

There is no registration fee for this workshop. Talks will be invite-only. Abstracts can be submitted to present a poster at the reception.
