We would like to draw your attention, and that of the quantum information community, to the 15th edition of the Asian Quantum Information Science Conference (AQIS'15). 

It is the leading conference in the subject in Asia, its highly successful predecessors having been EQIS'01-05 and AQIS'06-14. The topics covered include, but are not limited to, quantum computing, quantum information theory and experiment, quantum communication and cryptography, and foundations of quantum mechanics.

Details about the conference can be found on the website: 
Please check repeatedly as the information there will be updated regularly. 

Like its previous editions, AQIS'15 will consist of invited talks and tutorials, as well as oral and poster presentations, selected by a high-profile international programme committee.

Invited speakers include [to be completed]:
*Scott Aaronson (MIT)
*Sergey Bravyi (IBM)
*Kihwan Kim (Tsinghua U)
*Christian Kurtsiefer (NUS, Singapore)
*Yasunobu Nakamura (RIKEN and U Tokyo)
*Jian Wei Pan (USTC, Hefei)
*Renato Renner (ETH, Zurich)
Tutorial Speakers include [to be completed]:
*Dagmar Bruss (U Duesseldorf)
*Daniel Nagaj (Solvak Acad. Sciences)
Contributions are solicited in (but not limited to) the following areas:

- Quantum computation, algorithms and complexity
- Quantum information theory
- Quantum decoherence fighting concepts, methods and tools
- Quantum cryptography
- Quantum communications experiments and theory
- Quantum technologies (optics, atomic physics, and solid-state physics, etc.)
- Quantum processor and computer design
The submission deadline is June 11, 2015, 23:59 Anywhere on Earth (AoE).
All submissions must follow the guidelines specified on the web site.

We are looking forward to seeing you in Seoul, Korea!
