Dear colleagues and friends,

We are happy to announce the Advances in Quantum Cryptography workshop organized by the Paris Centre for Quantum Computing (PCQC) in Paris France, as well as the GdR-IQFA and the GT-IQ.

PCQC brings together computer scientists, theoretical & experimental physicists and mathematicians, working in Paris and aspires to break the ground for the establishment of new and realistic applications in quantum information processing. More details about the centre can be found at For more information on the GdR-IQFA
visit and for the GT-IQ visit

The Advances in Quantum Cryptography workshop will take place on 23-24 March 2015 at Institut Henri Poincaré in Paris, France.
Everyone except speakers must register. The registration is free and we will try to accept everyone who wants to participate, but space is limited.
