4th International Conference on Quantum Cryptography (QCrypt 2014)

Paris, France, September 1-5, 2014

Conference website: http://2014.qcrypt.net

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.

QCrypt is an international conference series on quantum cryptography. The first three conferences took place at ETH Zurich in September 2011, at the National University of Singapore in September 2012 and at IQC in Waterloo in August 2013.

QCrypt 2014 will take place at Telecom ParisTech in Paris, France, September 1-5.

QCrypt features invited talks, contributed talks, and a poster session. In addition, we will also have a select series of focused tutorials and an industry panel session.

Important dates
April 28, 2014: deadline for submission of paper abstracts
June 16, 2014: notification of acceptance
June 23, 2014: deadline for submission of poster abstracts
September 1-5: conference

Submission information
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. The submission to QCrypt should consist of 2-3 pages in PDF format, containing a non-technical, clear and insightful description of the results and main ideas, their impact, and their importance to quantum cryptography. For theoretical work, the submission should direct the reader to a technical version of the work (this should preferably be online but otherwise can be provided as an attachment). The submission should not consist of a compressed version of the technical exposition of the paper, but instead should facilitate the reading of the technical version and help the program committee assess its importance. There are no proceedings, thus simultaneous submission to other workshops, conferences or journals is possible.

For poster submissions, a one-page non-technical PDF abstract is required.

Submissions this year will be managed by the EasyChair system.
When filling the submission form, please indicate whether your submission is intended for:

- oral or poster contribution,
- oral contribution only,
- poster contribution only
