Quantum Research Retreat 2018
Quantum Research Retreat in Tenerife - Spain (2018)
The idea of this meeting is to discuss about the newest techniques using quantum algorithms. The meeting is focused in develop new attacks and/or to use encryption with quantum algorithms. In 2016, we gave an introduction talk about quantum algorithms and quantum walks. Furthermore, we gave some other ideas for attacks and how to deal with some problems that quantum algorithms raise, e.g., reversible and unitary operations.
The event is co-organized with the ECRYPT-CSA and PQCRYPTO conference on post-quantum cryptography, for more information can go to their website.
January 29th - January 30th
Tenerife, Islas Canarias, Spain
