We are pleased to announce the 2nd Quantum Thermodynamics Conference that will take place in Palma de Mallorca, Spain (19-24/4/2015). This conference follows the First Quantum Thermodynamics Conference in Potsdam/Berlin in January 2014 and is funded by COST action 1209 Quantum Thermodynamics. This 2nd edition is hosted by the Institute of Cross-Disciplinary Physics and Complex Systems IFISC, a joint research Institute of the University of Balearic Islands UIB and the Spanish National Research Council CSIC.

The 2nd Quantum Thermodynamics Conference is meant to be a reference for researchers working in thermodynamics in the quantum regime, in connection with quantum information theory and statistical physics. Two keynote, several invited and contributed talks as well as a poster session are scheduled, promoting young scientists. Time for discussions and workgroup meetings is allocated during the week. The rich program of scientific activities is completed by local outing and an excursion to Serra de Tramuntana (World Heritage Site by UNESCO) providing excellent opportunities to further connect with colleagues. Baby-sitting services are offered to participants attending the conference with their children.

The conference will take place at the UIB campus and transport will be provided from and back to the hotel.
