QCRYPT initiates a new conference series on Quantum Cryptography. The first conference in this series will be held at ETH Zurich and the second at CQT in Singapore. The aim of this series is to bring together researchers working on all aspects of the subject (both on the theoretical and experimental sides) and to support the building of a research community in Quantum Cryptography.

Taking a step toward the realization of futuristic quantum technologies, a team of physicists from China and Germany has demonstrated a key element – an entangling gate – of a quantum teleportation scheme proposed more than 10 years ago. The entangling gate serves as a fundamental building block for applications such as long-distance quantum communication and practical quantum computers.

The Institute for Quantum Computing is now inviting applications for tenured or tenure-track faculty positions in all areas of quantum information research.

Positions are available for cross-appointment in the Faculty of Mathematics, the Department of Chemistry and the Department of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Waterloo.
