Workshop on

Information and Security in Quantum World



Organized by

Centre of Excellence in Cryptology, Indian Statistical Institute

Dates: March 28-30, 2012, Location: NAB-1, Indian Statistical Institute

Research in quamtum computing and quantum cryptography is growing rapidly throughout the world. The goal of this workshop is to make young Indian researchers aspiring to work in the area get exposed to state-of-the-art research, possible future research avenues and open problems.


Attending the workshop is by invitation only. Interested participants may contact the program coordinator at goutam.paul@ieee.org
