Quantum Networks for Open Science Workshop

Sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy
Office of Advanced Scientific Computing Research
Rockville, Maryland
September 25 - 26, 2018

This Workshop is by Position Paper Only

The Quantum Networks for Open Science (QNet) Workshop will bring together experts from DOE national Labs, industry, government, and academia to identify research challenges and opportunities in the development and deployment of quantum networks to enable distributed Quantum Information Science (QIS) activities. QIS is critical and strategic to post-Moore's Law technology for DOE and the nation that will introduce a new era in non-digital computing based on quantum mechanical properties such as superposition and entanglement.

The workshop will cover a broad spectrum of end-to-end quantum communications networks, and sub-systems ranging from quantum interconnects, to Quantum Local Area Networks (Q-LANs), Quantum Metropolitan Networks (Q-MANs), and Quantum Wide Area Networks (Q-WANs).
