Quantum physics and communication
Dubna, May 16-17, 2002
Quantum information processing is a new research area at the intersection of quantum physics and computer science. The main goal of this field is to improve on classical computers and classical complexity bounds as well as cryptographic communication protocols by making use of quantum mechanical phenomena. Simultaneously, investigation of resources for quantum computation (such as quantum entanglement) enables us to understand from a different perspective fundamental properties of quantum mechanics.
Recent advances in the realization of elementary quantum logic gates (e.g. using
ions traps, cavity QED and NMR technology), and the experimental implementation
of phenomena such as quantum teleportation, entanglement swapping or quantum
cloning, and, obviously, experimental implementation of quantum key distribution have led to a massive exploration of this field by scientists from varied disciplines.
The purpose of the Workshop is to provide a compact and comprehensive overview of basic ideas of quantum information theory and to establish perspective contacts for future collaboration.
Main topics of the Workshop should cover entanglement as a resource for quantum computing and communication, multi-partite quantum correlations, decoherence,
physics of information processing, and others.
Dates and venue
The Workshop will be held on May 16-17, 2002 in Dubna at the Joint Institute for
Nuclear Research (JINR). Dubna is a quiet and pleasant town 130 km north of Moscow
on the picturesque banks of the Volga river. There is railway and bus communication
between Dubna and Moscow. More detailed information about Dubna can be found
The Workshop languages are Russian and English. Simultaneous translation of the
presentations from Russian into English will be offered.
The Organizing Committee expects of participants short abstracts of their presenta-
tions in either language. The abstracts in the form of PostScript- or Word-files should be e-mailed to the addresses given below.
The deadline for abstracts submission is April 30, 2002.
