Local Organization

Roberto Ferrara, Uzi Pereg, Stepehn Di Adamo, Christin Wizemann, Robert Schetterer

Topics of Interest

Will quantum communication reshape classical network design? What will be the next technological breakthrough in quantum communication? This interdisciplinary workshop focusses on entanglement as a resource assisting classical communication systems. We welcome participants from academic institutions, research labs and industry. Selected approaches to entanglement-assisted communication will be presented, along with established communication models in classical networking. To spark fruitful discussions, information regarding the progress in quantum hardware development will be provided.
