During the first day of the UQCC2010 conference on Oct 18th, we presented a live demonstration of secure network operation using QKD in a metropolitan network dubbed "Tokyo QKD Network". The network was formed by combining six different QKD systems developed by 8 companies and research organizations both from Japan and Europe. A secure video conference between the network nodes was successfully demonstrated.
The conference featured 40 talks and 75 posters, with topics related not only to QKD technologies but to a much wider variety of quantum information technologies, such as quantum repeater, quantum memory, quantum metrology and simulations.
