Leiden, Lorentz Center Workshop — 11 Dec 2018 through 14 Dec 2018

The inter­net — a vast net­work con­nect­ing devices any­where on earth using long-range clas­si­cal com­mu­ni­ca­tion — has had a rev­o­lu­tion­ary impact on our world. The vision of a Quan­tum Inter­net is to pro­vide fun­da­men­tal­ly new inter­net tech­nol­o­gy by enabling quan­tum com­mu­ni­ca­tion between any two points on earth. Such a Quan­tum Inter­net will – in syn­er­gy with the ‘clas­si­cal’ inter­net that we have today — con­nect quan­tum proces­sors in order to achieve unpar­al­leled capa­bil­i­ties that are prov­ably impos­si­ble using clas­si­cal com­mu­ni­ca­tion.

Giv­en present progress in research and devel­op­ment, the first small scale quan­tum net­works are expect­ed in the com­ing year. The objec­tive of this work­shop is to bring togeth­er researchers from physics, com­put­er sci­ence and engi­neer­ing in order to define a roadmap of com­mon research goals.
