2022 Workshop on Entanglement Assisted Communication Networks (EACN)

On February 3rd - 6th, 2022, the 2nd Workshop on Entanglement Assisted Communication Networks (EACN) will take place at Physikzentrum Bad Honnef.


Boulat Bash (University of Arizona), Christian Deppe (TUM-LNT), Janis Nötzel (TUM-TQSD) and Stefano Rini (NYCU)

Local Organization

Benjamin Kambs, Olaf Gröscho, Uzi Pereg, Matteo Rosati, Simon Sekavčnik


Topics of Interest

Will quantum communication reshape classical network design? What will be the next technological breakthrough in quantum communication? This interdisciplinary workshop focusses on entanglement as a resource assisting classical communication systems. We welcome participants from academic institutions, research labs and industry. Selected approaches to entanglement-assisted communication will be presented, along with established communication models in classical networking. To spark fruitful discussions, information regarding the progress in quantum hardware development will be provided.
