Welcome to Quantiki

Welcome to Quantiki, the world's leading social portal for everyone involved in quantum information science. No matter if you are a researcher, a student or a fan of quantum theory, this is the place you are going to find useful and enjoyable! While here on Quantiki you can: browse our content, including fascinating and educative articles, then create your own account and log in to gain more editorial possibilities.

Add new content, such as information about upcoming quantum events, open positions for quantum scientists and existing quantum research groups. We also encourage to follow us using social media sites.

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.

We are inviting you to participate in the 1st International Conference on Quantum Technologies (ICQT-2011) taking place in Moscow during July 13-17, 2011. This conference is planned as a kick-off meeting of the fresh born Russian Quantum Center (RQC), the associate of Skolkovo Foundation. The first RQC conference will bring together interdisciplinary experts from various fields exploring frontiers of quantum technologies.

This postdoctoral work will tackle the crucial question of the practical security of QKD systems. Indeed, while QKD can theoretically be proven absolutely secure, practical implementations may suffer from technological and protocol-operational imperfections that an attacker could exploit in order to compromise the security of the key establishment.

The quantum computation and information group at the University of Bristol offers a number of post-doctoral positions of two years duration, available for research in theoretical aspects of quantum information, quantum computation and foundations of quantum mechanics.

The Department (see http://www.damtp.cam.ac.uk/) invites applications for a post-doctoral research position to commence on 1 October 2011. The successful candidate will be associated with the Centre for Quantum Information and Foundations (formerly Centre for Quantum Computation) of the University of Cambridge (see http://cam.qubit.org), to work on a scientific research project on Mathematical Characterizations of Quantum Reality, funded by the John Templeton Foundation.
