The UK Quantum Communications Hub workshop on recent advances in quantum networking (QNetworks) will return on 28-29 September 2023 with a new programme of speakers reporting on latest breakthroughs in the field.
QNetworks is a two-day annual workshop bringing together researchers from the UK’s Quantum Communications Hub programme and similar initiatives across the world as well as industry to discuss technological challenges and solutions for creating the next generation of quantum communication networks.
This year the particular focus will be on challenges and possible solutions for building a quantum network that can support the rollout of a future quantum internet with applications beyond point-to-point security such as distributed quantum computing. The event will include sessions on: the perspective from industry; international quantum networking initiatives; quantum communications in space; and others.
