QuICS hosts international cryptography conference in Washington, D.C.
Researchers from around the globe descended on downtown Washington, D.C. recently for the 6th International Conference on Quantum Cryptography, known colloquially as QCrypt.
More than 250 physicists, mathematicians, cryptographers and engineers spent five days (Sept. 12–16) at the Carnegie Institution for Science discussing quantum principles and other techniques relevant to cryptography, which is the study of how to communicate securely.
The annual conference was hosted by the Joint Center for Quantum Information and Computer Science (QuICS). It marked the first time QCrypt was held in the United States.
