Quantum Information Project 2010
Objectives of the Project:
Realizing the immense promise held out by QIS, on the one hand, and the numerous challenges that need to be surmounted by the physics community before the power and versatility of this resource can be harnessed into productive activities, on the other, the EJTP team finds it an opportune time to come up with a Special EJTP Issue dedicated exclusively to QIS. This would provide researchers with a collective platform for presenting their findings to the extended readership within a short gestation.
This project would relate to all facets of QIS including, in particular, but not restricted to
(a) Quantum Information Theory & Quantum Entropy
(b) Quantum Entanglement, Decoherence & Quantum Measurements
(c) Quantum Computation & Algorithms
(d) Quantum Error Corrections
(e) Quantum Cryptography
(f) Fundamental Issues in QIS e.g. Bell Inequalities, Nonlocality etc.
(g) Experimental Issues in QIS
(h) Quantum Communications
(i) QIS & Fundamental Physics e.g. QFT, GTR, Black Hole Dynamics & Cosmology.
Processing information is what all physical systems do. Quantum computation is not just a technological promise, but the most challenging test for the conceptual problems in Quantum Mechanics. We could say that Schrödinger's cat has been tamed and is leading us along the most charming paths of the physical world. Anyway, NP-complete problems appear impregnable even by traditional quantum computing. All that sounds paradoxical considering that the local and classical world emerges from the non-local quantum one, which permeates any aspect of the physical world. Turing Machine is a computation model strongly connected to classical, local and deterministic physics. So the proper question is whether the Turing model is really the best scheme for quantum information. In other words, Quantum Turing Machines constrain the quantum system to yes/no answers, whereas the real computational vocation of QM would be to use superposition and non-locality to obtain probabilistic oracles beyond Turing barrier performance. In this volume we have tried to provide a panorama of these trends. On one hand the physics of traditional, Turing-based Quantum Computing - crucial to clarify the old foundational problems and surely decisive in the future in nanotechnology and quantum communication - , on the other the possibility of a broader concept of quantum information which will lead to a new pact between quantum dissipative field theory and the concept of computation in physical systems
Quantum Communication Workshop 2010
QCW2010 is a two-day workshop on theoretical and experimental aspects of quantum communication and quantum cryptography.
This event is organized by UNIK - University Graduate Center of Kjeller, at the Kjeller Technology Cluster, located half-way between the Oslo Airport and downtown Oslo in Norway.
QCW2010 will focus on practical advanced solutions for quantum communication and cryptography currently under development in European and world-wide partnerships involving academic research centers, commercial companies and public consortia.
Quantum communication technologies developed in the trusted environment of experimental laboratories have recently addressed industrialization and commercialization, thus facing expected and unexpected challenges: from security vs. business requirements and conformity to standardization and legal specifications, to field operational tests under malevolent attacks.
Aiming to provide network security for communications, quantum fiber-based and free-space technologies are both becoming a reality across optical networks, and will thus be discussed at QCW2010 by experts in the field within a global perspective.
