Conference Description (submitted by organizer)
2017 has seen a tremendous increase in interest for quantum solutions, designed to counteract the forthcoming threat of the quantum computer.
To celebrate our 10th anniversary, we are happy to welcome many international experts, including three special guests: Charles Bennett and Gilles Brassard, the early pioneers of quantum cryptography and teleportation (BB84 protocol) and Artur Ekert, the inventor of entanglement based quantum cryptography (E91 protocol).
The Winter School will take place between 20th-26th January 2018 and will feature two tracks:
– The Executive Track will provide a high-level overview of quantum threats and cyber security during the first two days
– The in-depth Technology Track will last the full week and go into all of the technical details
This year, our distinguished faculty guests will include Romain Alléaume, Johannes Buchmann, Nicolas Gisin, Jason Hart, Andrew Lord, Vadim Makarov, Michele Mosca, Renato Renner, Sandu Popescu and ID Quantique’s R&D team.
