We are now accepting submissions for QCRYPT 2012 to be held in Singapore 10 – 14 September, 2012. Submissions of abstracts for contributed papers are sought in both theoretical as well as experimental quantum cryptography and related fields. We encourage submissions from related areas such as non-locality and information theory. Paper submission deadline is 20 May, 2012 and poster submission deadline is 1 August 2012.

We'd like to announce the next Q+ hangout:

Date: 24th April 2012

Time: 14:00 British Summer Time

Title: Fundamental limitations for quantum and nano thermodynamics

Speaker: Jonathan Oppenheim (University College London)

Two chapters of Advanced Topics in Measurements published by InTech March 2012 using variant construction to show positive evidences to resolve wave-particle duality and Bohr-Einstein debates on the foundation of the Quantum Mechanics.

In relation to classical Young double slits experiments, EPR model, Bell Inequalities, Feynman Criteria and Bohr-Einstein debates, a set of predictions and conjectures are suggested.

In the Chapter 18: From Local Interactive Measurements to Global Matrix Representations on Variant Construction – A Particle Model of Quantum Interactions for Double Path Ex

Quantum measures play a key role in quantum interactions. In this paper, a variant simulation system – a variant double path model – is proposed that uses multiple variable logic functions and variant principle schemes applied to input/output relationships as a variant quaternion. Under this mechanism, a two-state system of quantum interactions can be simulated by the variant double path model. Visual distributions can be expressed by their probability, synchronous/asynchronous, and symmetry/anti-symmetry statistical properties.

The Scuola Normale Superiore (SNS) in Pisa (Italy) is a public institute for higher education with unique features: the selection of students – through specific public competitions – is based on merit only, classes are organized like seminars, teaching and research are closely linked, college life is an integrated part of the experience. Moreover, according to the best models of higher instruction in Europe, great space is devoted to international exchanges. The greatest resource of the Normale is the quality of its students.

Several groups will offer schloarschip for the “4th Practical Quantum Cryptography Winter School” which will take place from January 23 to 26, 2012.

We are pleased to announce the next Q+ hangout organized by Daniel Burgarth. The event will take place this Wednesday (30.11.2011, 14:00 GMT) and this time Matthew Pusey (Imperial College) will present his work "The quantum state cannot be interpreted statistically".

This lecture series is part of QIC 890/891 held at the University of Waterloo, Spring 2011 and organized by Michele Mosca. We will present our variant of the graphical notation of Penrose, tailored to describe networks of connected tensors representing quantum states, operators and processes, and as a uniting tool for the notation and language of quantum theory, information science and condensed matter physics.

The next Q+ hangout is on the coming Tuesday:

Speaker: Prof. Andreas Winter, Bristol University
Date: 27th of September, 14:00 BST
Title: Zero-error communication via quantum channels, non-commutative graphs and a quantum Lovasz theta-function
Abstract: I will review some of the recent progress on the zero-error capacity problem for quantum channels, centered mainly around my work with Runyao Duan and Simone Severini [1002.2514], which suggests an extension of graphs and graph notions into the non-commutative domain.
