Quantum Communications and Information Technology (QCIT’16)
December 8th, 2016
Washington D.C., U.S.A.
Unlike in the classical public key cryptography, which uses one-way functions, quantum key distribution (QKD) uses the principles of quantum mechanics to generate and share keys between two parties. It also allows the provision to detect eavesdropping during the sharing process. The resultant shared keys can then be used with any chosen encryption algorithms.
Though these concepts have been fairly developed, there is no real system on the market that can carry out these tasks. This conference aims to connect people from academia and industry to exchange ideas related to quantum communications and developing applications and research in this new field.
QCIT ’16 is a part of IEEE Globecom, which will be held in the U.S. capital of Washington D.C. Conference goers can visit various points of interest like the Smithsonian Institution, the Washington Monument, the Lincoln Memorial, and the iconic White House.
