Quantum Information and Measurement (QIM)

18 March 2014 – 20 March 2014 OSA Virtual Event

Quantum information is an exciting, rapidly growing area of scientific interest and development, attracting cutting-edge theoretical and experimental research worldwide. Its rapid development gave birth to a number of novel quantum applications that provide exciting perspective and opens new horizons in many areas of measurement and technology. Optical methods play a key role in many implementations of quantum information and quantum technology.

The conference topics will cover theoretical development and experimental implementation of qubits and quantum gates using all kinds of physical systems, optical, semiconductor, atomic, superconducting, and hybrid environments. Special emphasis will be given to novel ideas targeting quantum information techniques and applications such as quantum metrology and sensors, quantum communication and networking, quantum memories and routers, quantum imaging, etc.

Laser Optics Reception
Tuesday, 18 March, 17:00 - 21:00
Join your fellow attendees at the laser optics reception. Enjoy delectable fare while networking. The reception is open to full congress attendees. Conference attendees may purchase extra tickets for their guest.

Joint Poster Sessions
Wednesday, 19 March, 10:30 - 11:30
Posters are an integral part of the technical program and offer a unique networking opportunity, where presenters can discuss their results one-to-one with interested parties. Each author is provided with a board on which to display the summary and results of his or her paper.

Postdeadline Papers
Wednesday, 19 March, 17:30 - 19:00
The QIM and HILAS committees will accept a limited number of postdeadline papers for oral presentation.  Before the sessions begin light refreshments will be served.
