Along with advances in the Quantum Computing domain, Quantum Communication has also made significant strides in the last twenty years, starting with DARPA Quantum Network effort in the first decade of the twenty-first century. The pace of advances in Quantum Communication/Networking has accelerated significantly in the second decade with efforts all across the world on advancing this important technology. Major efforts are currently underway, not only in the United States, but also in countries such as China, India, U.K., The Netherlands and Singapore.

Network Science has been used to model the structure and dynamics of a wide variety of large-scale complex networks, including Internet connectivity, the WWW, peer-to-peer networks, and online social networks. The concepts from Network Science can play an equally important role in Quantum Communication as it has played in the classical communication. The topic of this workshop will be of particular relevance to the INFOCOM community, as Quantum Communication technology is going to play a major role in the computer communication in the future. Consequently, it’s extremely important to understand the physics of quantum communication, the higher layer protocols of classical communication as well as tools and techniques from Network Science to derive comprehensive benefit from the Quantum Communication technology.

A deeper understanding of the interplay between multiple disciplines can only be achieved through closer interaction between physicists, mathematicians, network scientists and communication network designers. The goal of this workshop is to provide a forum for this diverse group of researchers to come together and exchange ideas leading to insights into the design of robust and complex quantum communication networks of the future.
