Call For Papers

Third IEEE Workshop on

Quantum Communications and Information Technology (QCIT’17)

EXTENDED DUE DATE - 23. July 2017

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 technology
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 communications
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 to
spend significant amounts of funding in research and development of quantum
technologies. However, the step from quantum technology based devices to
real systems running a communications or information processing task has not
completed yet. Moreover, many problems show opportunities to contribute with
knowhow, technologies and engineering out of the communications area. The
following topics are crucial to the development of future quantum technology
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 industry
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 above-mentioned
areas. Regular papers have a length of 4 to 6 pages with an optional payable
7th page. All manuscripts will be peer reviewed and published in the workshop
proceedings and after presentation in IEEE Xplore. Templates for the
manuscripts can be downloaded from:

The formatted manuscript should be electronically submitted as pdf via EDAS:

Further information is available in the Globecom 2017 webpages:
