The 4th International Conference on Quantum Foundation and Technology: Frontier and Future (ICQFT2016) will be hosted by University of Science and Technology of China (USTC) at Shanghai, China during November 12-17, 2016. On behalf of the organizing committee, we would like to invite you to participate ICQFT2016.

The 1st ICQFT was inaugurated in 2006 at Hangzhou, China, and then the ICQFT has been held every three years in China. The 2nd ICQFT at Shanghai and the 3rd ICQFT at Dunhuang were held successfully in 2009 and 2012. The details of the ICQFT2016 may be found in

ICQFT2016 covers vast areas of quantum science ranging from fundamental physics to the newest technologies and devices, including but not limited to:

  • Quantum Cryptography and Quantum Communications Theory
  • Quantum Computing and Quantum Information Theory
  • Implementations of Quantum Information Processing and Quantum Simulations
  • Quantum Photonic Network
  • Measurement and Metrology and Foundations of Quantum Mechanics

The conference will provide the opportunity for leading scientists and younger researchers to meet for discussions on the most recent developments in the field of Quantum Science. The conference is open to scientists worldwide. We plan for a maximum attendance of just above 300 participants.

In 2016, the international scientific community shall witness two historic moments in China: the first quantum satellite will be launched in July in China and the first two-thousand-kilometer quantum network between Beijng and Shanghai will be built up at the end of the year. These two key breakthroughs will open up the «global quantum network» age. We would like to invite you to being in the part of the historic moments.
