 This workshop aims to give a general introduction into these topics and to convey the new thinking, excitement and challenges that go with quantum information science. This workshop aims to give a general introduction into these topics and to convey the new thinking, excitement and challenges that go with quantum information science.
  
-== Outline == +If you want to know more about quantum ​information research in Romania check out the [[https://​roqnet.ro/about/|Romanian Quantum Network (RoQnet)]] or contact DrRadu Ionicioiu ([[r.ionicioiu@theory.nipne.ro|r.ionicioiu@theory.nipne.ro]]) ​and DrMona Mihailescu ([[mona.mihailescu@physics.pub.ro|mona.mihailescu@physics.pub.ro]]).

-   - Monday, 20 Aug +
-      * **Introduction**:​ A brief history of quantum ​computation and quantum cryptography,​ what makes them interesting and the current state of the art. +
-      * **What'​s quantum ​about quantum computing?​**:​ A simple explanation of what makes quantum special and why quantum algorithms could outperform classical algorithms at certain tasks. +
-   - Tuesday, 21 Aug +
-      * **How to make a physical ​theory ​101**: We'll discuss the core elements that characterize a physical ​theory, how these apply to quantum mechanics and how this takes us to quantum information. +
-      * **Quantum information basics**: Qubits ​and quantum gates and how to use them to make quantum algorithmsWe'll also look a simple quantum computation on the IBM quantum chip. +
-   - Wednesday 22 Aug +
-      * **Quantum algorithms**:​ Continuing with algorithms, we'll look at the quantum algorithms of Simon and Shor. +
-      * **Post-quantum cryptography**:​ Given that Shor's algorithm makes many public-key crypto protocols insecure, we'll discuss a potential fix, namely post-quantum cryptography. +
-   - Thursday, 23 Aug +
-      * **Quantum cryptography**:​ An introduction to quantum cryptography and the BB84 quantum key distribution protocol. +
-      * **Entanglement and device-independence**:​ We'll see how quantum entanglement allows us to have secure protocols even in the presence of untrusted quantum devices, or so-called device-independent protocols. +
-   - Friday, 24 Aug +
-      * **Quantum hardware**: How do we physically realize qubits and quantum gates? A look at the basics of quantum hardware. +
-      * **Fault tolerance and the future**: We end by discussing how quantum devices can cope with noise and imperfections as well as discuss the outlook for future implementations.+
