2nd Workshop for Quantum Repeaters and Networks 

We are pleased to invite you to the Second Workshop for Quantum Repeaters and Networks, to be held in Seefeld, Austria, Sept. 25-26, 2017.

The first workshop, held in 2015 in Pacific Grove, California, brought together a diverse international group of researchers for a fruitful weekend of talks and discussions.  At this second workshop, we look forward to continuing these discussions, with a focus on recent progress, challenges and new possible directions emerging in our community.  We invite researchers working on key enabling technologies and system integration, protocols for connecting repeaters across network links with high fidelity, architectures for large-scale networks, and applications of distributed quantum entanglement.

We've arranged the technical sessions around four themes, with the goals of quantum networks, figures of merit, component technologies, and paths to scalability; please see the Speakers & Program page for details.  There will be two poster sessions.

We encourage you to apply and hope to see you in Seefeld in September.
