Workshop on Theory and Realisation of Practical Quantum Key Distribution 2010

2010-06-14 - 2010-06-17
Waterloo ON, Canada
We are glad to announce that the Second Workshop on Theory and Realisation of Practical Quantum Key Distribution will take place at the Institute for Quantum Computing, University of Waterloo, Waterloo ON, Canada, from June 14th to June 17th 2010.
Quantum Key Distribution is the most advanced application of Quantum Information Science. It reached already the world of commercial implementation. At the same time, fundamental questions remain that might broaden the application spectrum of this basic idea. The workshop is devoted to all aspects of practical QKD, focussing on the latest developments in all its subfields. The workshop brings together experimentalists and theoreticians who are interested in building efficient and practical quantum key distribution set-ups.
Topics of discussion will include:
- Side channels in QKD
- Market analysis/User scenarios/QKD in classical (security) infrastructure/Standards
- Satellite QKD
- Enabling technologies
- Software protocols and finite size effects
- New theoretical scenarios and technologies

The programme will consist of invited oral presentations and contributed posters. 
The number of participants in the workshop is limited. Preference will be given to those researchers who are active in the field of QKD.  All participants will have the opportunity to present a poster which will be displayed for the full duration of the workshop. There will be no conference fee charged. Meals will be provided. The workshop will start with registration and lunch at noon on June 14th, and end with lunch on June 17th.
