Workshop on Quantum Private Telecommunications
22 April 2010, Instituto de Telecomunicações - Aveiro
This one-day workshop is organized by the Security and Quantum Information Group (SQIG) and the Optical Communications group (OC-Av) of Instituto de Telecomunicações (IT) within the context of the FCT project QuantPrivTel – Quantum Private Telecommunications. The objective is to present and discuss the achievements obtained so far, both in terms of the theoretical quantum protocols for private telecommunications and of the preparation of their experimental implementation with single photons in optical fibers.
Time and place
The workshop will take place on Thursday 22nd April 2010,
in Anfiteatro, at the Instituto de Telecomunicações site in Aveiro (Campus Universitário de Santiago).
The workshop is open to anyone interested. Participation is free, but an e-mail registration is necessary to attend the meeting.
