Quantum Information Processing with Rare-Earth doped Solids Meeting

The 6th edition of the Quantum Information Processing with Rare-Earth doped Solids meeting took place in Barcelona on May 12-13, 2011. This meeting has historically been central to the QuReP partners with the current QuReP project having been born out of these meetings. With many of the QuReP partners in attendance, the goal of the workshop was to bring together the main European groups working in the field (as well as some overseas guests), in order to discuss on going work, new ideas, experimental challenges and potential solutions.

This year's edition was organised by ICFO (in particular the Group of Prof. Hugues de Riedmatten) and supported by ICFO as well as the European project QuReP: Quantum Repeaters for Long-Distance Fiber-Based Quantum Communication.
