What is Quantum Information?

Quantum Information is the information that is carried and processed by molecules, atoms, photons and other elementary particles, according to the principles of Quantum Mechanics. The science of studying Quantum Information is called Quantum Information Science and it lies in the intersection of mathematics, physics, computer science, electrical engineering, and chemistry.

Here is the description of Quantum Information given by the American Physics Society.

Quantum Information was recently featured in the news of the American Physics Society.

The Division of Quantum Information has exhibited the most impressive growth during the last 5 years among all divisions of the American Physics Society, as you can see in this table which can be found in the website of the Unit Statistics of the American Physics Society

I strongly encourage the students who are interested in Quantum Information to attend some conferences on the subject. Update : Because of COVID-19 many of these conferences became webinars so now it is easier to attend! Moreover several Quantum Information online seminars emerged that I encourage the students to attend! Here is a list of some interesting conferences and online seminars in Quantum Information that I suggest.
