Workshop on
Quantum Physics and Communication

Dubna, Russia, 15 - 19 October, 2007

First announcement

Workshop objectives

Quantum information processing is a new research area at the borderline of quantum physics and computer science. The main goal of this field is to go beyond classical computing 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 the understanding of the 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 various disciplines.

The purpose of Workshop is

  1. to provide a compact and comprehensive overview of recent advances in quantum information theory;
  2. to focus on physical aspects of generating, storing and transporting quantum information;
  3. to explore possible experimental realizations of quantum logic elements such as qubits and quantum gates;
  4. to discuss mathematical and computational aspects of quantum information.
Main topics:
  • 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 official language of the Workshop is English.
The Workshop will be held on 15 - 19 October, 2007 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.
