About the conference

Going to space is the natural extension to experiments involving the distribution of quantum states of light. From a practical point of view, the range of quantum communication can be extended over larger distances. More fundamentally, entanglement can be tested not only on scales inaccessible on the ground, but also in conditions where the interplay between gravity and entanglement could potentially play a role. 

On the other side, classical photonics technologies are always more relevant for space. They allow for high rates space communication and laser ranging is a standard technique to determine of satellites orbits and for planetary observation. Many of the technological advances developed for those classical methods could be apply for quantum experiments. Conversely, recent development of quantum technologies could improve classical methods. The goal of the conference is to bring together those various communities and to identify overlaps not only in the technology domain but also from a theoretical perspective. It will help in answering questions as how can quantum technologies can take advantage of classical photonics developments, but also how classical methods may be improved by quantum technologies.
