The vast studies in the careful control of quantum states, motivated by the quantum information science with an aim to develop quantum information processors, have also enabled measurements in unprecedented precision and accuracies. The precision measurements using these quantum technologies can be adopted to answer some of the fundamental questions of quantum mechanics, and possibly expand the quantum mechanical description to a macroscopic system, "the classical big system!".

This program will deal with quantum cryptography, quantum computing and quantum repeaters. The goal of this event is to introduce this exciting topic in a relaxed and stimulating atmosphere to a general audience of physicists and computer scientists with little or no background in practical quantum communications. Special emphasis will be placed on practical aspects of quantum communications, such as the implementation of quantum key distribution systems and quantum repeaters, as well as concrete steps towards a quantum computer.
