Quantum Information Processing, Vol. 5, No. 4, August 2006 (© 2006) DOI: 10.1007/s11128-006-0025-2 Quantum Information: Philosophical, Mathematical and Experimental Perspectives The present issue of “Quantum Information Processing” (QIP) as well as the two subsequent issues will be a forum for a subset of distinguished speakers and authors who met at the University of Vienna in May 2005 to contribute to the international conference “Quantum Physics of Nature (QUPON2005)” and the 6th European workshop on “Quantum informa- tion processing and communication (QIPC)”. There is always a good reason for a top-level scientiﬁc meeting. But this time several additional motivations called for an event with outstand- ing scientists: The year 2005 was not only ofﬁcially declared to be the UNESCO World Year of Physics, it was also the 100th anniversary of Albert Einstein’s paper on the quantum nature of light—, which marks the birthday of quantum optics. It also happened that the ﬁrst day of the con- ference coincided with Anton Zeilinger’s 60th birthday, which is seen by many of us as an important date for Quantum Optics and QIP. While work on the foundations of quantum physics has long been regarded as a subject for philosophers rather than physicists, it
