Quantum Physics and Communication
Dubna, Russia, 30 June - 3 July, 2005
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 fundamental properties of quantum mechanics from a different perspective. Recent advances in the realization of qubits and elementary quantum logic gates using ion traps, cavity QED, NMR technologies, quantum optical systems, superconducting devices and solid state nanostructures open new horizons in quantum information processing. 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 Workshop is
- to provide a compact and comprehensive
overview of recent advances in quantum information theory;
- to focus on physical
aspects of generating, storing and transporting quantum information;
- to explore
possible experimental realizations of quantum logic elements such as qubits and quantum gates.
The official language of the Workshop is English.
- Physics of quantum information processing
- Experimental quantum computing
- Models and logic of quantum computation
- Coherent control of quantum systems
- Quantum entanglement
- Decoherence in quantum systems
- Quantum communication and cryptography
- Quantum algorithms
The Workshop will be held on 30 June - 3 July, 2005 in Dubna at the Joint Institute for
Nuclear Research (JINR). Dubna is a quiet and pleasant town 130 km north of Moscow
situated 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
