Quantum Information and Measurement (QIM) is an exciting, rapidly growing area of scientific interest and development, attracting cutting-edge theoretical and experimental research worldwide. Entanglement is a key resource for quantum information and quantum computing, whereas decoherence is the main adversary. Optical methods play a key role in many implementations of quantum information.  There are 27 invited and 66 contributed oral presentations scheduled, together with 43 poster presentations.
