Wojciech Kozlowski, Quantum Network Engineer, QuTech; will give session keynote “Future Directions in Quantum Networking” today at IQT NYC 2023.
Talk 9.3: Quantum Networking Software
Wojciech Kozlowski studied Theoretical Quantum Physics at the University of Cambridge where he obtained his MSci (2012). He then completed his PhD in Atomic and Laser Physics at the University of Oxford (2016). In his PhD he studied the interactions of quantum light with trapped cold atomic gases and developed theoretical models for the resulting competition between measurement back-action and intrinsic atomic dynamics.
Following his PhD studies, Wojciech decided that he would rather dive into Computer Science. Therefore, rather than following an academic career he went to work as a software engineer in the network protocols team at Metaswitch in London. It is here that he developed his interest in computer networks. During his time in industry, Wojciech was able to learn the basic theory of operation of computer networks whilst gaining practical experience in implementing and running network software.
Wojciech found out about QuTech while attending the IETF 101 meeting in London where the Quantum Internet Research Group at the IRTF was formed. Less than a year later, in February 2019 Wojciech joined QuTech as a postdoc in the Wehner Group. His research work focused on quantum network protocol design and the software architecture for quantum networking nodes. In the meantime he also became a co-chair of the Quantum Internet Research Group at the IRTF. As of April 2021, Wojciech is a Quantum Network Engineer at QuTech. In his new role he works on developing the overall software architecture for quantum networks covering both the data and control plane.
IQT New York 2023 is devoted to three days of coverage of quantum cybersecurity, quantum networking and quantum sensors. This must-attend event will be held October 24-26 at the Conference Center in New York City with a new sky-level exhibition space overlooking the Hudson River and the Intrepid Aircraft Carrier.
IQT New York is a 100% in-person only conference, offering 30+ sessions and 100+ speakers, and is New York’s quantum event. In addition to our usual topics, IQT New York 2023 will feature panels on the hottest areas in quantum such as Quantum AI, QKD-over-Satellite, Quantum Sensing in Healthcare, and the Emergence of the Quantum Internet. There will also be a new session on the Manufacturing of Quantum Systems.
Attendees at IQT New York 2023 will leave the event with the deepest understanding of the future of quantum technology. This conference brings together corporate management, entrepreneurs, end users, technology providers, infrastructure partners, researchers and investors who are looking for business opportunities in the quantum ecosystem. IQT New York 2023 takes place October 24-26 at The Conference Center, 636 11th Ave. (between 46th & 47th St.) in New York City.
