QCrypt 2014

4th international conference on quantum cryptography. September 1–5, 2014 in Paris

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.


Public event

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

Hot topic session

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 qcrypt2014@gmail.com. Hot topics speakers will be selected and announced on Monday September 1.

Selected speakers should be prepared to present a 15 min technical talk on Friday September 5 between 2:25-3:25 pm.
