ESRC — QCALL Early-Stage Researchers Conference 2019
16 Sep 2019 - 19 Sep 2019 • Palermo, Italy
Quantum Communications for ALL (QCALL) is a European Innovative Training Network that endeavours to take the next necessary steps to bring the developing quantum technologies closer to the doorsteps of end users. QCALL will empower a nucleus of 15 doctoral researchers in this area to provide secure communications in the European continent and, in the long run, to its connections worldwide.

The QCALL Early-Stage Researchers Conference (ESRC) is a four-day conference on quantum communications, aimed at Master and PhD students as well as early post-doctoral researchers.

The conference will feature five well-known invited speakers, introducing each of the main topics of the conference, and possibly an industrial session will be organised. There will also be time for around 30 talks by other participants as well as a poster session. The topics covered by the conference will be:

Entanglement-based Quantum Communications

Security of QKD

Satellite QKD


Component technology (Chip-based QKD, detectors, QRNG, etc.)

The list of invited speakers for each session, respectively, is below:

Wolfgang Tittel (QuTech)

Charles Lim Ci Wen (CQT Singapore)

Daniel Oi (University of Strathclyde)

Li Qian (University of Toronto)

Jake Kennard (KETS)
