QCIT-P1: QCIT Panel Discussion

Room: 4212

Prof Gui-Lu Long, Tsinghua University, Beijing, China
Jinhong Yuan, UNSW, Sydney, Australia
Lajos Hanzo, Southampton University, Southampton, UK
Peter Mueller, IBM Zurich Research Laboratory, Switzerland

With the upcoming new Quantum Communications and Information Technologies, many new fields of research and applications are under discussion. This panel discussion aims to discuss the aspects of quantum technologies, its requirements and its possible applications. A special emphasis is given to the questions how the new technology could be integrated in our traditional fields of communications and how our know-how can be applied to let quantum technologies happen. The panel also discusses key technologies and technology enablers to motivate future research.
