(This international conference will take place at Coeur des Sciences, UQAM, Montréal)

Quantum Information Processing (QIP) is a rapidly developing field of research spanning both physics and computer science. As the name implies, the field extends information processing (including computing and cryptography) to physical regimes where quantum effects become significant.

QIP 2012 will be the fifteenth workshop on theoretical aspects of quantum computing, quantum cryptography, and quantum information in a series that started in Aarhus in 1998 and was held 2011 in Singapore.

The conference will take place between December 12 and December 16, 2011.QIP 2012 will feature invited talks, contributed talks, and a poster session. In addition, there will be a rump session with short informal talks. QIP 2012 is the final event of the thematic semester on quantum information organized by the Centre de Recherches Mathematiques (CRM).
