Communication over a quantum broadcast channel with cooperation between the receivers is considered. The first form of cooperation addressed is classical conferencing. Another cooperation setting involves quantum conferencing, where Receiver 1 can teleport a quantum state to Receiver 2. The conferencing setting is intimately related to quantum repeaters, as the sender, Receiver 1, and Receiver 2 can be viewed as the transmitter, the repeater, and the destination receiver, respectively. We develop lower and upper bounds on the capacity region in each setting. At last, we show that as opposed to the MAC with entangled encoders, entanglement between decoders does not increase the classical communication rates for the broadcast dual.
