The entanglement entropy of a quantum critical system in d+1-dimensions described by a Conformal Field Theory is calculated as the "area" of a d-dimensional minimal surface in a d+2-dimensional Anti-deSitter space. This formulation is analogous to the Bekenstein-Hawking formula for the black hole entropy.
