VDL talk on "The rise of the Quantum Internet: From No-Cloning to Teleportation"


Austin ComSoc/SP/CtSoc and Computer/EMBS  joint chapters  would like to invite you to attend a special VDL talk on


 "The rise of the Quantum Internet: From No-Cloning to Teleportation”



Prof.  Angela Sara Cacciapuoti, University of Naples Federico II (Italy)



The interconnection of quantum devices via the Quantum Internet – i.e., through a network enabling quantum communications among remote quantum nodes – represents a disruptive technology. In fact, the Quantum Internet can provide functionalities with no counterpart in the classical world, such as advanced quantum security services, distributed quantum computing services characterized by exponential increase of the computing power, and new forms of communications. These functionalities have the potential of fundamentally changing the world in which we live, in ways we cannot image yet.

The aim of this talk is to provide the participants with a wide view about quantum communications and quantum networks, and the unique challenges for transmitting quantum information. For this, some marvels of quantum mechanics such as entanglement, no-cloning theorem and teleportation, will be gently introduced.



Angela Sara Cacciapuoti is Associate Professor at the University of Naples Federico II (Italy), where she is co-leading the Quantum Internet Research Group (http://www.quantuminternet.it). Her research interests include mainly quantum communications and quantum networks. In particular, her research seeks to pave the ground for a better understanding of the challenges and technical leaps necessary to achieve the ultimate vision of a Quantum Internet.

Her work has appeared in first tier IEEE journals and she has received different awards and recognitions, including the the "2022 IEEE ComSoc Best Tutorial Paper Award” and “2021 N2Women: Stars in Networking and Communications”.

She is a IEEE ComSoc Distinguished Lecturer for the class of 2022-2023!

Angela Sara currently serves as Area Editor for IEEE Communications Letters, and as Editor/Associate Editor for the journals: IEEE Trans. on Communications, IEEE Trans. on Wireless Communications, IEEE Trans. on Quantum Engineering and IEEE Network. She was also the recipient of the 2017 Exemplary Editor Award of the IEEE Communications Letters.

Angela Sara served as Vice-Chair of the IEEE ComSoc Women in Communications Engineering (WICE). Previously, she has been appointed as Publicity Chair of WICE. In 2016 she has been an appointed member of the IEEE ComSoc Young Professionals Standing Committee. From 2017 to 2018, she has been the Award Co-Chair of the N2Women Board. From 2017 to 2020, she has been the Treasurer of the IEEE Women in Engineering (WIE) Affinity Group of the IEEE Italy Section.
