Our first conference on the subject successfully held in December 2016 happened to celebrate the victory of condensed matter physics, in particular topological quantum matter, in 2016. 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.

In order to efficiently exchange the rapid developments and cultivate collaborations in the interdisciplinary studies of the subject, we once again aim to assemble the leading theorists and experimentalists of topological orders, quantum information and computation, and emergent gravity in this second conference.
