The registration for the Quantum Technology Flagship kickoff in Vienna is now open.
This marks the point at which the first round of funded projects are presented to each other, to the community, and to the decisionmakers who are interested in supporting the flagship. On day two, the community as well as official groups reflect on the start and help setting the flagship program on a successful trajectory for the next steps.
The Kickoff will be held in a great setting in Vienna - with a festive day at the Hofburg and a focused working day at the Academy of Sciences. Please join us in launching the program and setting it onto a successful path.
Registration closes on 25 September 2018.
We will confirm your registration on 1 October 2018.
Note that organizing travel and hotel is up to you, the organizers cannot help or endorse any particular business.

World’s first link layer protocol brings quantum internet closer to a reality
Researchers from QuTech have achieved a world’s first in quantum internet technology. A team led by Professor Stephanie Wehner has developed a so-called link layer protocol that brings the phenomenon of ‘quantum entanglement’ from a physics experiment towards a real world quantum network. This brings closer the day when quantum internet can become a reality, delivering applications that are impossible to achieve using a ‘classical’ internet. The work was published recently at ACM SIGCOMM.
