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 are currently entering a new technological era where quantum mechanics is used not only to predict physical behaviour but increasingly to exploit quantum resources in applications such as Quantum Communication, Cryptography, Computation and Metrology. Due to the probabilistic nature of quantum measurements, statistical inference based on measurement data plays an increasing role in analysing and validating the results of quantum experiments.
The 2nd Conference in the Quantum Africa Series will take place from 3 to 7 September 2012.
Invited Plenary Speakers:
F. Jelezko (University of Ulm)
N. Gisin (University of Geneva)
A. Ekert (National University of Singapore and University of Oxford)
M. Padgett (University of Glasgow)
L. Davidovich (Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro)
The past two decades have witnessed the emergence and explosive development of quantum information science and technology (QIST), which requires concerted efforts from a wide variety of different disciplines including quantum physics, mathematics, computer science, information science, chemistry, material science, and engineering.
