Europe’s largest quantum network, MadQCI (Madrid Quantum Communication Infrastructure), will pave the way for the next generation of metropolitan quantum networks. A cornerstone of the EuroQCI initiative, which aims to integrate terrestrial and space segments of quantum communication to achieve a sovereign and secure quantum-internet-of-things for the whole of Europe, MadQCI’s undertakings will contribute to progress on photonic quantum states processing, the development of ultra systems of measurement and distribution of time signals, the development of new quantum algorithms and communication between quantum computers, among others.
MadQCI is a one-of-a-kind quantum network globally: spanning real world applications, and developed with participation from industrial partners such as Telefónica, it already operates with shared quantum and classical infrastructure, including optical fiber, and supports various use cases such as network security, critical infrastructure protection, and e-health services.
In the surroundings of World Quantum Day, you are cordially invited to join our first online talk, “MADQCI: The next generation of metropolitan quantum networks“.
In this talk, Dr. Vicente Martín Ayuso, Principal Investigator of the Quantum Information and Computing Research Group (GIICC) and Director of the Center for Computing Simulation at UPM will take you on a thrilling journey into the heart of MadQCI and its role in shaping the future of quantum communication.
Date: Friday, April 21st
Time: 15:00 (CEST)
Enabling MadQCI stands the Madrid Quantum-CM (MadQ-CM) project, whose objective is to promote a scientific and industrial ecosystem around quantum communications. MadQ-CM is coordinated by Dr. Vicente Martín, and developed with the participation of the Autonomous University of Madrid (UAM), Complutense University of Madrid (UCM), IMDEA SOFTWARE Foundation (IMDEA SW), IMDEA Networks Foundation (IMDEA NW), National Institute of Aerospace Technique (INTA), Spanish Metrology Center (CEM) and the Vithas Foundation (FV).
We look forward to your participation and the chance for you to engage with fellow academics, quantum communication startups, and experts in the field!
This talk is organized by The Center for Computing Simulation (CCS) at UPM and Quantum Literate, a global quantum technologies dissemination initiative by public affairs firm, Mission-Oriented.
