Workshop 3: Space Quantum Internet

hosted by Humboldt Universität at the ErwinSchrödinger Zentrum in Berlin, Germany, from Wednesday 30th August – Friday 1st September, 2023.

We are delighted to announce workshop 3 of INSQT, which will focus on the space quantum internet. Distributing entanglement across a quantum network is a precursor to enabling distributed technologies that can improve performances in quantum sensing, imaging, and computing. This workshop will review efforts in developing global quantum networks that are capable of supporting these distributed challenges. The workshop will focus on the role of key components and enablers of quantum networking within this architectural framework such as quantum memories. The workshop will feature a diverse range of talks from international partners actively involved in the development of various components necessary for achieving this ambitious goal across academia and industry. This will include the development of satellite links, memory-assisted quantum communication protocols, satellite and terrestrial networks, and the potential application of a space quantum internet to address open fundamental questions in Physics. Discussions on the progress, current readiness, and outstanding challenges will help accelerate the development of quantum networks and shape future activities. Join us in Berlin for the third workshop of INSQT!

Abstract Due: 15th July 2023

Author Notification: 15th August 2023

Workshop dates: 30th August to 1st September 2023

Venue: Erwinschrödinger Zentrum in Berlin, Germany.  [http://xn--erwinschrdinger%20zentrum-6rc/] Accommodation included.

Organising Committee:

Mustafa Gundogen (Humboldt Universität)

Jasminder Sidhu (University of Strathclyde)

Markus Krutzik (Humboldt Universität)

Contributions (talk or poster) are welcome for the following (not exclusive) topics:

  • Concepts and Architectures for the Space Quantum Internet (SQI)
  • Enabling technologies (Quantum memories, repeater architectures, timing synchronisation)
  • Applications I: secure communication
  • Applications II: detectors
  • Applications III: networking quantum computers, distributed sensing
  • Tests of Fundamental Physics

The aims of the workshop are:

  • Concepts and Architectures for the Space Quantum Internet (SQI) for the large scale distribution of entanglement and enabler of quantum networking
  • Quantum Memories in space or on-ground for space connections, performance and perspectives for future development
  • Applications of the SQI, e.g. fundamental physics, secure communication, networking quantum computers, distributed sensing, PNT,…

Funding: INSQT aims to provide accommodation and subsistence for the duration of the workshop. You may chose to apply for additional funding for travel within your application, which will be reviewed by INSQT, with priority given to INSQT members and early career attendees.
