The two day summer school is going to take place in London from 28 to 29 May 2024. Lectures by renowned experts in quantum communications and computing are planned as well as a poster session where the particpant’s work can be discussed. The event is intended for an audience of young researchers and Ph.D. students. However, interested postdocs and industry experts who want to get familiar with the topics are also very much welcome. For more information, please see the programme below.


Registration is free before the 21st May 2024. Please subscribe on eventbrite.
