Quantum cryptography has already been commercialized for urban size quantum networks. With the rapid development of quantum satellites and quantum repeaters, we expect global-scale quantum networks will be available in the near future. Since quantum states cannot be perfectly cloned, quantum networks are fundamentally different from classical networks – for example, to overcome loss errors we need quantum repeaters that are fundamentally different from classical repeaters. How to build an efficient, large scale quantum network? How to characterize, optimize, and use our future quantum networks? The workshop will cover robust protocols for large scale quantum networks, conceive performance metrics, optimize quantum network architecture, and explore novel applications of quantum networks.
