EQIS'01: The Workshops EQIS are to focus on quantum information science, a new interdisciplinary field bridging computer science and quantum physics. EQIS'01 is intended to be the first workshop in a series of such workshops and is to concentrate, primarily but not exclusively, on computational aspects of quantum information science. Program of EQIS'01 consists of the keynote talk, 12 invited talks, short communications and posters. Contributions for short communications and posters are solicited in research areas related to quantum information science, including, but not limited to: design and analysis of quantum algorithms and circuits, quantum games, quantum computational and communication complexity, quantum computing and automata models, quantum cryptography and cryptographical protocols, quantum information theory, quantum entanglement, quantum continuous variables computations, quantum geometric and topological computations.

In next year, EQIS'02 will be held in September 5-8, 2002.
