ECOC is the largest conference on optical communications in Europe, and one of the most prestigious and long-standing events in this field worldwide.
September 13th-16th | 2021
Our colleague Florian Fröwis will be part of the workshop on “Optical communications beyond 2020: Are we ready for the quantum age? “ running Monday September 13th.
The quantum communication industry is at the verge of a major roll-out of quantum-based technologies across the globe. In Europe, the deployment is heavily driven by the EuroQCI initiative, aiming to establish a Quantum Internet by the end of the decade and unleashing new concepts such as distributed quantum computing. On a shorter timescale, EuroQCI will deploy a QKD secured communication infrastructure around Europe. Such a significant addition to classical communication networks requires a concerted effort on many levels.
The aim of this workshop is therefore to bring together players from component manufacturing, system integration, network operators, and end-users to discuss the latest developments in this fast-moving field, with expert contributions on the following:
• Integration of point-to-point QKD links to large networks
• Dynamic control of QKD networks
• QKD system design
• QKD device implementation based on photonic integrated circuits
• Novel QKD protocols for long-distance transmission
• Industrial scale manufacturing of QKD systems
• Examination of practical deployment issues
• Standardization efforts
