Quantum cryptography aims to achieve security from fundamental physical principles, such as the quantum mechanical phenomena of entanglement and Heisenberg’s uncertainty principle. In the last few years, significant progress has been made in the theoretical understanding of quantum cryptography, and its technological feasibility has been demonstrated experimentally. Quantum cryptography is therefore regarded as one of the most promising candidates for a future quantum technology.
The annual conference on quantum cryptography (QCrypt) is a conference for students and researchers working on all aspects of quantum cryptography. The main goals of the conference are to represent the previous year’s best results and to support the building of a research community in quantum cryptography.
We are solliciting submissions for the hot topics session, which is the conference’s closing session. This session is devoted to the latest exciting results in the field of quantum cryptography. Previous oral and postersubmissions cannot be resubmitted as hot topics.
Please send a one-page PDF abstract until Monday August 25 to firstname.lastname@example.org. Hot topics speakers will be selected and announced on Friday August 29.
Selected speakers should be prepared to present a 15 min technical talk on Friday September 5 between 2:25-3:25 pm.
April 28 (Anywhere on Earth): deadline for submission of paper abstracts (passed)
June 16: notification of acceptance (passed)
June 23: deadline for submission of poster abstracts (passed)
Stay tuned for information about the hot topics session!
August 27-29: PCQC Inauguration Workshop
September 1-5: conference
On Tuesday, September 2, 6-8 pm, a Conference and Round Table Discussion will be organized on
“Thirty Years of Quantum Cryptography” with Charles Bennett, Gilles Brassard, Artur Ekert, and Peter Shor
Registration is free but mandatory. Registered QCrypt participants do not need to register to this event.
QCrypt 2015 will take place in Tokyo on September 28 (Mon) – October 3 (Sat), 2015.
