Friday, August 10, 2018 (all day) to Friday, August 17, 2018 (all day)
Quantum Cryptography School for Young Students (QCSYS) logo

Apply for QCSYS and discover how the physics and mathematics of quantum mechanics and cryptography merge into one of the most exciting topics in contemporary science – quantum cryptography.

Thursday, June 14, 2018 — 12:00 PM EDT

Speaker: Tom Hunter and Neil Henderson

Abstract: A lot of different concepts and possibilities have been discussed. The final session will recap those and put them in perspective, with emphasis on the relevance to a "typical" university start up and the people involved.

Monday, May 28, 2018 (all day) to Friday, June 8, 2018 (all day)
Undergraduate School on Experimental Quantum Information Processing (USEQIP) logo

Join us at the Institute for Quantum Computing for a two-week introduction to the theoretical and experimental study of quantum information processing.

During the Undergraduate School on Experimental Quantum Information Processing (USEQIP) will be exposed to lectures and experiments on the following topics and more.

Thursday, February 15, 2018 — 12:00 PM EST

Speaker: Viona Duncan

Abstract: We all want to be the nice guy, but we do not want to finish last. How should we respect the IP of others, particularly confidential information and what should we expect of others when we provide confidential information to them? Simple steps that can be taken to meet obligations and preserve confidentiality will be discussed. You may also have obligations to funding agencies and the University. The UW IP policy will be discussed along with issues of ownership and employee confidentiality.

Elizabeth Crosson, California Institute of Technology

Thursday, January 18, 2018 — 12:00 PM EST

Speaker: Heather Hoff

Abstract: Software is a key asset of any new business. How do you protect the results of weeks or months of hard labour? Who owns the software and how do I mange its development to ensure its inherent value is maintained? Should I use Open Source, or even contribute to Open Source? What are the benefits and how does this measure up against the risks?

“He who is good with a hammer thinks everything is a nail.”

- Modified quote from the original by Abraham Maslow


How does one sell security? How does one commercialize such nebulous concepts such as “Trust”, “Security” and “Cryptography”?  Cryptography, which is just one building block of security, is based on other more abstract building blocks such as algorithms which have a foundation on hard mathematical problems.
