This book contains a selection of papers invited and presented at the NATO sponsored Advanced Research Workshop on “Quantum Cryptography and Computing: Theory and Implementation” held at the University of Gdansk, Poland from September 9th to 12th 2009. The purpose of the workshop was to assess the state of the art in the subject areas and identify the most pressing research goals.
The workshop was an opportunity for about 38 experts from USA, Europe and the countries of the former Soviet Union republics to discuss theoretical and applied aspects of quantum cryptography and computing.
We wish to thank the NATO Public Diplomacy Division, Science for Peace and Security section (SPS) and more specifically Dr. Chris De Wispelaere, Program Director of Information and Communication Security, for the generous financial support of the workshop.
Special thanks are due to the University of Gdansk administration represented by the Rektor, Prof. Bernard Lammek, for making all meeting facilities available free of charge.
The Workshop Office was skillfully run by Elżbieta Bandura and Malgorzata Chrustowska. An important workshop publicity and communication job was well done by Piotr Arlukowicz. Several other people helped in various ways to make the workshop successful. They are: Rafał Demkowicz-Dobrzański, Andrzej Grudka, Michał Horodecki, Jarosław Korbicz, Łukasz Pankowski and Marcin Pawłowski. We also express our sincere thanks to several persons who helped edit the NATO ARW proceedings book. They are: Jarek Korbicz, Wiesław Laskowski and Marcin Pawłowski.
Above all we are deeply grateful to the workshop participants, especially those who contributed papers to this book.
