Quantum Information and Measurement (QIM) - IV: Quantum Technologies

Quantum Information and Measurement (QIM) - IV: Quantum Technologies

05 - 07 April 2017
Université Pierre et Marie Curie, Paris, France

Quantum information science has changed the way we view information processing and quantum physics. It is a rapidly growing area of interest, attracting cutting-edge theoretical and experimental research worldwide, and it has given birth to a number of novel quantum technologies that promise dramatically improved performance in imaging, sensing, communication, simulation and computation. The conference topics will cover the latest in theoretical developments and experimental implementations of quantum information technology, including the advanced engineering needed to realize such technologies.   In addition to the conference's traditional focus on quantum optics and photonics, the fourth QIM conference will widen the scope of the meeting to include other platforms for quantum technologies, broadly construed, including topics such as solid state systems (superconductors, semi-conductors), atoms and ions (including gravity gradiometers and gyroscopes, and computing and simulation engines).
