We would like to thank all participants and co-organizers for a interesting, fruitful, and fun conference week. We hope you all enjoyed the conference and had some time to explore Stockholm in her autumn dress.


The interdisciplinary field of quantum information processing and communication connects at its deepest level quantum mechanics, photonics, solid state physics, superconductivity, atomic physics, and electronics with computer science and information theory in order to gain advantages and functionality in cryptography, communication, and computing that are impossible to achieve within the realm of classical physics. Quantum information science has also revitalized the discussions about the foundations of quantum theory. The field has grown rapidly and is now one of the "hottest" subfields in both computer science and in physics.

The International Conference on Quantum Information will focus on physical and theoretical aspects of quantum information processing and communication, as well as on their physical implementation. The conference will bring together key researchers in the foundations of quantum mechanics, quantum information theory, quantum communication, quantum key distribution, and quantum computing to review, present and discuss recent important results.

Students from the Nordic countries are particularly encouraged to attend the conference. Attending students will be able to apply for (limited) financial support for their participation.

The conference is held in conjunction with two scientific programs, the Nordita Program on Quantum Information, 27 September - 29 October, 2010, and the Institut Mittag-Leffler program on Quantum Information Theory.
