Quantum Inf Process (2012) 11:637–638 DOI 10.1007/s11128-012-0390-y EDITORIAL Arun Kumar Pati · Pankaj Agrawal Received: 7 March 2012 / Accepted: 7 March 2012 / Published online: 21 March 2012 © Springer Science+Business Media, LLC 2012 Quantum information science is one of the frontier areas of science and technology. It is also an interdisciplinary area of research where scientists from physics, mathe- matics, and computer science can contribute alike. One of the main goals is how well one can process information using laws of quantum theory. Quantum information the- ory aims to process information that is not amenable with classical devices. At the same time this also provides new insights into the nature of the quantum world. Quan- tum information processing includes quantum computation, quantum communication, quantum cryptography and various information processing tasks. Not only does this provide a fundamental arena to investigate quantum phenomena but also gives new technological beneﬁts like quantum teleportation, remote state preparation and secure communications. In India there is a growing interest in this emerging ﬁeld. In view of this we had organized an International Program on Quantum Information (IPQI-2010) at the Insti- tute of Physics, Bhubaneswar during January 4–January 30, 2010. In this programme,
