Welcome to the 18th AQIS Conference

8-12 September 2018, Nagoya, Japan

The AQIS’18 conference will focus on quantum information processing, communication and cryptography, an interdisciplinary field bridging quantum physics, computer science, mathematics, and information technologies. AQIS’18 will be a natural successor of EQIS’01-EQIS’05 and AQIS’06-AQIS’17. AQIS’18 will consist of tutorials, invited talks, selected oral and poster presentations, as well as other activities. Contributions are solicited in (but not limited to) the following areas:

  • Quantum computation, algorithms and complexity
  • Quantum information theory
  • Concepts, methods and tools against decoherence
  • Quantum cryptography
  • Quantum communications experiments and theory
  • Quantum technologies (optics, NMR, solid state, etc.)
  • Quantum processor and computer design
  • Quantum programming languages and semantics


  • Ignacio CIRAC (MPQ, Garching)
  • Sandu POPESCU (U of Bristol)

Invited Speakers

  • Keisuke FUJII (Kyoto U)
  • Nicolas GISIN (U of Geneva)
  • Barbara KRAUS (U of Innsbruck)
  • Yasunobu NAKAMURA (U of Tokyo)
  • Robert RAUSSENDORF (U of British Columbia)
  • Pascale SENELLART (C2N-CNRS)
  • Wolfgang TITTEL (Calgary U)
  • Thomas VIDICK (Caltech)
  • Howard WISEMAN (Griffith U)
