PLENARY SPEAKERS

QTech 2018 conference will gather high-profile Quantum Technology experts to deliver plenary speeches:

Prof. Eleni Diamanti

University Pierre and Marie Curie, France

Eleni Diamanti is a researcher at the French National Research Centre (CNRS) LIP6 laboratory, at University Pierre and Marie Curie in Paris, France. She received her Diploma in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the National Technical University of Athens, Greece, in 2000 and her PhD in Electrical Engineering from Stanford University, USA, in 2006. She then worked as a Marie Curie post-doctoral scholar at the Institute of Optics in Palaiseau, before joining the CNRS in 2009. Her research focuses on experimental quantum cryptography and communication complexity, and on the development of photonic resources for quantum networks. She is a recipient of an ERC Starting Grant, vice director of the Paris Centre for Quantum Computing, steering committee member of the French national network on Quantum Technologies, and elected member of the Board of Stakeholders of the European Public Private Partnership in Photonics. She also serves at the Editorial Board of IOP Quantum Science and Technology.
