The emergent phenomena in topological orders not only play a fundamental role in condensed matter physics but also point to a new way of thinking about spacetime, namely as an emergent entity of more fundamental discrete degrees of freedom. On the other hand, the anyonic excitations in topological orders also lead to topological quantum computation---a quantum computing scheme robust again local errors. Recent advances have shown that topological orders, quantum computation, and emergent gravity are intimately and deeply related.


Our previous four conferences on the subject were very successful. Since then, there has been quite a few relevant advancements made by various research groups. It is therefore timely to have our fourth conference in order to efficiently exhcange the rapid developments and cultivate further and deeper collaborations in the interdiscipinary studies of the subject.
