These conference proceedings will be of interest to researchers and graduate students in Physics and Applied Mathematics. Quantum entanglement which is the key ingredient for the storage and distribution of quantum information among the fundamental physical constituents, was first noticed as a key feature of the quantum world seventy-five years ago by Schrodinger. Since then, the long road of development of the theory and applications of entanglement has led to remarkable concepts and prospects such as quantum teleportation, cryptography and computation which are set to revolutionize the field of communication and information transfer. Along this long road have also sprung up many surprises, paradoxes and fascinating puzzles. The S. N. Bose National Centre for Basic Sciences Silver Jubilee Symposium on 75 Years of Quantum Entanglement: Foundations and Information Theoretic Applications was organized during January 6th to 10th , 2011 to take stock of the present state-of-art of the subject by bringing together distinguished theorists and experimentalists from all over the world. Lectures by eminent scientists lead to stimulating discussions among the hundred and forty participants including about thirty-five students and post-doctoral fellows in the congenial atmosphere of the Neotia Centre of Excellence for Leadership, Salt Lake, Kolkata. Several poster presentations by young researchers invoked substantial interest among the experts.
