                    Third Workshop on

Quantum Communications and Information Technology (QCIT’17)


At IEEE Globecom’17, Singapore, 4-8 December 2017

The scope of this dedicated workshop is to explore the opportunities for 
application of communications theory and technologies to quantum 
and its applications. The workshop is the annual main event of ComSoc’s 
Emerging Technical Committee on Quantum Communications and Information 
Technology (ETC-QCIT).

Over the last decade, a wide variety of experimental quantum 
and processing devices has been invented and used for fundamental 
demonstrations in laboratories. Results confirm feasibility of real 
applications in quantum communications and information related fields. 
Recently one can observe upcoming applications in areas like a quantum 
communications, quantum sensors and random number generators which are 
partially even commercially available. Companies and governments started 
spend significant amounts of funding in research and development of 
technologies. However, the step from quantum technology based devices to 
real systems running a communications or information processing task has 
completed yet. Moreover, many problems show opportunities to contribute 
knowhow, technologies and engineering out of the communications area. The 
following topics are crucial to the development of future quantum 
based systems:

- Algorithms and applications complexity
- Analysis of classical vs quantum software
- Coding theory
- Coherent routers, repeaters and converters
- Communications and information theory
- Devices and circuits
- Entanglement distillation 
- Error correction 
- Experimental results and demonstrations
- Interconnection and complexity theory
- Metrology for quantum systems
- Modeling and simulation
- Network coding
- Photonic communications technology
- Processing and systems architecture
- Quantum electro-dynamics
- Quantum information theory
- Quantum key distribution
- Quantum sensors
- Quantum-algorithms and applications
- Remote state preparation
- RF based programming and algorithms
- RF technology and control
- Signal processing for quantum control
It is the aim of this workshop to connect people from academia and 
to discuss about theory, technology and applications and exchange ideas to 

move efficiently forward in research, engineering and development of this 
exciting area.

Submission info for camera-ready manuscripts
Original and unpublished regular papers are solicited from the 
areas. Regular papers have a length of 4 to 6 pages with an optional 
7th page. All manuscripts will be peer reviewed and published in the 
proceedings and after presentation in IEEE Xplore. Templates for the 
manuscripts can be downloaded from:
