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

QIP2015 is the eighteenth international conference on theoretical aspects of quantum computing, quantum cryptography, and quantum information in a series that started in Aarhus in 1998 and was last held in 2014 in Barcelona. QIP2015 will feature a tutorial programme, plenary talks, contributed talks, and a poster session.

QIP2015 will be the first edition of QIP conferences in Sydney, NSW, Australia. It will be hosted by Quantum Computation Laboratory at Centre for Quantum Computation & Intelligent Systems, University of Technology, Sydney (UTS), and co-organised by Quantum Information Research Groups at the University of Sydney, Macquarie University, and the University of Queensland. Conference venues will be located in the City Campus of UTS.
