Submission deadline: 
26 Jul 2015

The Quantum Communications and Information Technology (QCIT’15) workshop (at IEEE Globecom’15) is dedicated to explore the new opportunities for application of communications theory and technologies to quantum technology.
Over the last decade, a variety of physical quantum computing devices (called qubits) has been demonstrated and used for fundamental experiments in laboratories. Results confirm feasibility of real applications in quantum communications and information related fields.
