4th Winter School On Practical Quantum Cryptography


QKD School 12

After three very successful editions in 2009, 2010 and 2011, ID Quantique is proud to announce that the fourth edition will take place in January 2012 in the Swiss Alps. The goal of this Winter School is to introduce, to a general audience of physicists and computer scientists with little or no background in practical quantum cryptography, this exciting topic in a relaxed and stimulating atmosphere. Special emphasis will be put on practical quantum cryptography system design. The emerging applications of this promising technology will also be discussed.

By including hands-on tutorials, the Winter School will offer participants the unique opportunity to learn to operate a real quantum cryptography system, as well as single-photon detectors.

In order to maximize the possibility to interact with instructors and to allow intensive hands-on tutorials, the number of participants is limited to 16. Applications will be accepted on a first come, first served basis.

Come join us in Les Diablerets next winter! This Winter School is a unique opportunity to learn about state-of-the-art practical quantum cryptography and gain hands-on experience. The program will also allow participants to network and socialize, while discovering winter sports such as downhill skiing or snowshoe hiking in a beautiful Swiss Alps winter landscape.
