Quantum.Amsterdam Public Meetup

  • 2021-01-21T16:00:00+01:00
  • 2021-01-21T17:00:00+01:00
January 21 Thursday

Start: 2021-01-21 16:00:00+01:00 End: 2021-01-21 17:00:00+01:00

This is an announcement for something totally different than the usual seminars: the upcoming Quantum.Amsterdam Public Meetup. This event targets an audience without (much) prior knowledge of quantum, hence it may not be of much interest for researchers themselves. However, we do encourage you to invite your partner, nephew, grandma, hamster, etc for this show. This event, and upcoming editions in March and May, should serve as a great way to introduce your friends and family to the things we’re working on at QuSoft.

This week speakers Stacey Jeffery (QuSoft) and Richard Versluis (QuTech / TNO) will give an Introduction to quantum software and quantum hardware.
Please contact Koen Groenland if you like to join in.

Workshop Dutch Secure Autonomous Cloud

  • 2021-01-14T13:00:00+01:00
  • 2021-01-14T16:00:00+01:00
January 14 Thursday

Start: 2021-01-14 13:00:00+01:00 End: 2021-01-14 16:00:00+01:00

We are pleased to invite you to the interactive workshop “Dutch Secure Autonomous Cloud” (DUSAC) on 14 January 2021. The second edition of this workshop focusses specifically on the security needs and challenges of various industry sectors like finance, insurance, software, high tech system integrators, health, etc. Representatives from these sectors are cordially invited to attend and discuss their needs and challenges with academia and industry partners.

Goal
The goal of the workshop is to develop an ambitious national project proposal within the Long Term Programmes grant (KIC 2020-2023, first deadline: 26 January 2021). The ambition of DUSAC is to develop a sovereign transparent secure computing environment where the whole vertical stack from the hardware layer to the higher software layers is secured. The vertical integration of security is transparent and depends minimally on modules/components that are produced/fabricated out of our control. We provide a scalable distributed computing infrastructure which brings computing to the edge that we can trust (secure, fair, available, high performance, digital autonomy).

This opens new opportunities. A trusted responsible high performance infrastructure allows industries to benefit from its service which, if not available, would otherwise require a large investment in private development of such an environment. Besides such cost reduction, using such a trusted infrastructure goes beyond secure data sharing and exchange. It offers secure joint computation with specifications about usage rights for computed results (that explain when a computed result is allowed to be accessed by a participating party). Transparent handling of security by means of open-source implementations and well defined security guarantees with respect to adversarial models generates consumer trust – in turn leading to the availability of more valuable consumer data.

We envision the trusted infrastructure to fundamentally change our society as a whole because it takes away some of the fear due to lack of trust that has accumulated because of cyber attacks, computer viruses, malware, privacy leakage, etc. Our approach is multidisciplinary involving policy and governance and business models that analyse security as a differentiator. Our consortium develops the security and system aspects of the next generation cybersecurity infrastructure.

Registration
The workshop will take place online on 14 January 2021 from 1.00 to 4.00 pm. If you want to attend this event please register here: REGISTRATION

The Conference on Innovative Data Systems Research (CIDR) is a systems-oriented conference. CIDR is complementary in its mission to the mainstream database conferences like SIGMOD and VLDB, emphasizing the systems architecture perspective.

This year, CIDR will be organized as an online event, from 11-15 January 2021. The program runs daily from 16:00-19:00, and features single-track keynotes, papers, demo presentations, and panel discussions.

More details about the program will be shared soon on this web page and the CIDR website: http://cidrdb.org/cidr2021/
