Workshop on Entanglement Assisted Communication Networks

TU Munich


June 19 - 23, 2023


Taipei, Taiwan

Shared entanglement is widely acknowledged as the key enabler to future quantum information processing tasks. Yet, from a technological perspective, it has remained largely unclear how exactly one should approach the transfer from ideas and laboratory experiments to actual technology. In particular this is true for the domain of quantum communication.

To find answers to multidisciplinary questions connecting theory, experiment and network design, this interdisciplinary workshop focusses on entanglement as a resource assisting classical communication systems. We welcome participants from academic institutions, research labs and industry. Selected approaches to entanglement-assisted communication will be presented, along with established communication models in classical networking.

This workshop is organized together with the ICSSUR 2023, which takes place the week after from June 26 to June 30.
