On YQIS Origins

Welcome to the First Edition of the International Conference for "Young Quantum Information Scientists" (YQIS),made by young researchers for young researchers (PhD students and post-doctroal fellows).

Initiated by Alain Aspect (Institut d'Optique Graduate School, Palaiseau, France) and Sébastien Tanzilli (University Nice Sophia Antipolis, France), the first edition of YQIS will be held at the Institut d'Optique Graduate School in Palaiseau, France, and is made possible thanks to a fraction of the 2013 Balzan Prize awarded to Alain Aspect for his pioneering work in the field of quantum information and communication. Promoting pedagogical actions towards young research fellows is one of the major concerns of the International Balzan Prize Foundation.

YQIS Scope

The fundamental properties of quantum physics are now considered as resources for the processing and the communication of information. Quantum Information Science (QIS) has established a new benchmark in communication and processing of information, thanks to protocols allowing augmented security in data exchange and increased processing capabilities. This young research field, lying at the interface of physics, computer science, mathematics and chemistry, has been driven by a strong international effort over the past fifteen years, with substantial rates of publications, patents, but also in terms of committed researchers. Quantum Information is now recognized as a full-fledged specialty, which motivated the formation of new teams. It is also a source of significant progress, both in terms of fundamental and applied technology, allowing for instance to coherently write and manipulate various quantum systems.

In this context, it is of utmost importance to permit young research fellows to benefit from their conference, in order to communicate on their research topic and exchange with others. YQIS themactics are broadband and cover both the theoretical and experiemtal sides, ranging from the very foundations of quantum information to applied quantum systems. In other words, all quantum information protocols are very welcome to be presented, whatever the quantum information carriers and the systems in which they are implemented. The thematics covered by YQIS are well summarized by the following artist view.


Tutorial Speakers

 Two 1-hour tutorial talks will be given by internationally recognized experts in YQIS related fields.

  • Prof. Alain Aspect (Institut d'Optique Graudate School, Palaiseau, France) - Title to be announced.
  • Prof. John Rarity (University of Bristol, United Kingdom) - Title to be announced.

All other talks, slots of 30 min each, will be given by young researchers after selection by the Scientific Committee (see the right panel).
