2022 Quantum Key Distribution (QKD) Summer School (August 15-19, 2022)

2022 Quantum Key Distribution (QKD) Summer School (August 15-19, 2022)

The international Quantum Key Distribution (QKD) Summer School is a five-day program focused on theoretical and experimental aspects of quantum communication with a focus on quantum cryptography. 2022 Quantum Key Distribution (QKD) Summer School aims to provide a solid foundation in relevant approaches and techniques to enable graduate students and young postdoctoral fellows to perform their own independent research. This year, QKD Summer School is running August 15-19, 2022.

This is a three optional follow-up workshop, where participants will gain hands-on project-based experience with open-source numerical QKD software tools. The workshop will be led in small groups by members of the Optical Quantum Communication Theory group at IQC who are actively developing the QKD software tool.
