Speaker: Rodney Van Meter, Keio University
Title: Networks of Networks of Quantum Repeaters
Date/time: Friday March 6, 1:30-2:30pm.
Location: CS 401.


Experimental progress toward quantum repeaters is moving at a
tremendous rate, and theorists have proposed half a dozen approaches
to managing errors to create high-fidelity entanglement along a chain
of repeaters.  The next frontier is extending from one-dimensional
chains to complex topologies.  Problems in network engineering include
robust protocol design and resource management.  I will give an
overview of these issues, then discuss the even more daunting
challenge of creating networks of networks -- a true quantum Internet
-- capable of coupling networks that are heterogeneous in both
physical technology and error management scheme.


Rodney Van Meter received a B.S. in engineering and applied science
from the California Institute of Technology in 1986, an M.S. in
computer engineering from the University of Southern California in
1991, and a Ph.D. in computer science from Keio University in 2006.
His current research centers on quantum computer architecture and
quantum networking.  Other research interests include storage systems,
networking, and post-Moore's Law computer architecture.  He is now an
Associate Professor of Environment and Information Studies at Keio
University's Shonan Fujisawa Campus.  Dr. Van Meter is a member of
