PICQUE/QUCHIP final project conference

From 2017-09-26 to 2017-09-29, Rome, IT
The EU-funded PICQUE and QUCHIP projects will host their final conference in Rome, Italy, 26 to 29 September 2017.
Quantum information has the potential to revolutionise information processing, especially for computer simulations which require system sizes that are currently impossible in classical machines. Consequently, there is a need for a suite of powerful and precise instruments enabling this improved computation. Europe is a world-leader in this field.

This final conference will include tutorial lectures, invited seminars on scientific results, presentations and posters. Around 100-150 senior scientists and young researchers are anticipated to attend.

The PICQUE project was set up to harness the quantum nature of information and learn how to process it using physical systems, operating according to quantum mechanics laws. The project particularly investigated integrated photonic circuits for quantum information processing in optical systems.

The QUCHIP project was set up to develop new photonic technologies, ranging from on-chip sources of single photons to complex waveguide architectures and on-chip detectors.
