Quantum Communication Seminar: Quantum Cryptography: Why and How

T217 Room| Escuela Ingeniería Telecomunicación (Vigo) · on April 21, 2017

Next Friday, 31 April from 15:00h to 16:30 it will take place a seminar about Quantum Communication delivered by Professor Norbert Lütkenhaus of Institute for Quantum Computing (University of Waterloo, Canada).

Norbert Lütkenhaus studied at the Rheinisch-Westfälische Technische Hochschule Aachen (RWTH Aachen) and the Ludwig Maximilian University (LMU) of Munich, from which he graduated with a thesis in general relativity.

He then changed the field to study quantum optics and quantum cryptography under the supervision of Stephen M. Barnett at the University of Strathclyde, Scotland, UK.

In 1996 he obtained his PhD after postdoctoral positions in Innsbruck (Peter Zoller and Ignacio Cirac) and the Helsinki Institute of Physics (Kalle-Antti Suominen).

He worked for MagiQ Technologies (New York) to initiate the project of commercial realisation of quantum key distribution.

Returning to academia in 2001, he built up and lead an Emmy-Noether Research Group at the University of Erlangen-Nürnberg, during which time he did his habiliation (2004).

Currently he is a Professor at the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) and in the Physics department at the University of Waterloo and runs the Optical Quantum Communication Theory Group.

Title: Quantum Cryptography: Why and How.

Speaker: Prof. Norbert Lütkenhaus.

Place and time: T217 Room| Escuela Ingeniería Telecomunicación (Vigo), on Friday 21 april from 15:00h to 16:30h.

Seminar: Practical Quantum Key Distribution with Continuous Variables

Sala acristalada (A-010) | Escuela Ingeniería Telecomunicación (Vigo) · on April 20, 2017

Quantum mechanics is a well established theory that can explain a lot of phenomena occurring at very small scales. The consequences of quantum mechanics are not always intuitive but they play a fundamental role in the evolution of technology
towards atomic scales in order to develop more versatile and efficient devices. At the same time, it is possible to take advantage of these effects (many of which are not observable in the macroscopic world) and use them to process information in ways which are not possible with classical physical theories. Welcome to the world of quantum information!

Quantum information (QI) adopts a physical approach to information in order to take advantage of some quantum properties (entanglement, uncertainty, superposition…). The most well known promises of QI are quantum computers and quantum key distribution (QKD). Quantum computers are able to perform some tasks more efficiently than their classical counterparts while QKD allows the establishment of a key between different parties that remains secure no matter the resources of the attacker.

The talk will cover the basic quantum mechanics to grasp the most general QI algorithms. The current trends of QKD and their implication in the modern world will be discussed. A more technical approach will be taken to explain QKD, specially the continuous variable version (CV-QKD) which is very attractive for integration and mass production.

Luis Trigo Vidarte is an engineer coming from the University of Vigo (Spain). After spending four years working at Gradiant (Galician R&D ICT Center) he got attracted to quantum mechanics and he is currently working towards a PhD in Paris (Institut d’Optique Graduate School and Université Pierre et Marie Curie). The topic of his PhD is high performance continuous variable quantum key distribution (CV-QKD), specially regarding new protocols, integration and extension to free space (with satellite communications in mind).

Title: Practical Quantum Key Distribution with Continuous Variables

Speaker: Luis Trigo Vidarte

Place and time: A-010 Room| Escuela Ingeniería Telecomunicación (Vigo), on Thursday 20 april from 15:30h to 17:00h.

Signal processing, the core of 5G

Signal processing is at the core of the emerging fifth generation (5G) cellular communication systems, which will feature revolutionary changes in the physical layer. The objective of this summer school is to teach the main physical-layer techniques for 5G from a signal-processing perspective. The lectures will provide background on 5G wireless communication concepts, and their formulation from a signal processing perspective. Emphasis will be placed on showing specifically how cutting-edge signal processing techniques can be used in 5G.

The lecture topics include: Massive MIMO, mmWave communications, positioning, and massive machine-to-machine (M2M) communication. Through the course of the lectures, connections will be made to core signal processing topics, including channel estimation via compressed sensing, while also introducing the mathematics associated with the analysis and optimization of communication systems.

IEEE Globecom 2016

Washington (DC, USA) · from 4 to 8 December, 2016

IEEE Globecom is one  of two flagship conferences of the IEEE Communications Society (ComSoc), together with IEEE ICC.

The conference meets once a year in North America and attracts roughly 2000 leading scientists, researchers and industry practitioners from all around the world. IEEE GLOBECOM is therefore one of the most significant scientific events of the networking and communications community, a must-attend event for scientists, researchers and networking practitioners from industry and academia.

IEEE Globecom is a five-day event. Two days are dedicated to tutorials and workshops, while the remaining three days are dedicated to the IF&E program and the technical symposia. The program of the technical symposia includes oral or poster presentations of about 1000 scientific papers, grouped into 12 thematic symposia, and more than 15 parallel sessions. In addition to the technical program, IEEE Globecom 2016 will feature an industry forum and exhibition (IF&E) program, including industry-focused workshops, tutorials, keynote talks from industrial leaders, panel discussions, a large exposition, and business and industrial forums.

IEEE Globecom 2016 will be held in Whasington (DC, USA), on December 4-8.

UCAmI 2016

Las Palmas de Gran Canaria (Spain) · from 29 November to 2 December, 2016

Las Palmas de Gran Canaria held from November 29th to December 2nd the 10th International Conference on Ubiquitous Computing and Ambient ‪Intelligence UCAmI 2016, the international date focused on finding new ways to obtain a better integration of the information technology in everyday life devices and activities. The Ubiquitous Computing (UC) idea envisioned by Weiser in 1991, has recently evolved to a more general paradigm known as Ambient Intelligence (AmI) that represents a new generation of user-centred computing environments and systems.

The main focus of this edition of the UCAmI Conference will be “Ambient Intelligence: Sensing, Processing and Using Environmental Information”. Recently the interest in AmI environments has grown considerably due to new challenges posed by society, demanding highly innovative services, such as vehicular ad hoc networks (VANET), Ambient Assisted Living (AAL), e-Health, Internet of Things and Home Automation among others.
