After three very successful editions in 2009, 2010 and 2011, ID Quantique is proud to announce that the fourth edition will take place in January 2012 in the Swiss Alps.

The goal of this event is to introduce to a general audience of physicists and computer scientists with little or no background in practical quantum cryptography this exciting topic in a relaxed and stimulating atmosphere.
Special emphasis will be put on practical quantum cryptography system design. The emerging applications of this promising technology will also be discussed.

By including hand-on-tutorials, the Winter School will offer participants the unique opportunity to learn to operate a real quantum cryptography system, as well as single-photon detectors.
