We are interested in composite pulses widely employed in Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) and geometric phase gates (GQGs) with vanishing dynamic phases in Quantum Information Processing (QIP). A composite pulse in NMR is constructed with poor quality pulses but becomes more reliable than its components. We found: a composite pulse robust against pulse length error in NMR is always a GQG [1]. We then extended this observation to two-qubit operations. Let us consider the interaction $e^{-i \theta \sigma_z \otimes \sigma_z}$ and assume that there is a systematic error in $\theta$. When we construct a ``composite pulse'' robust against this error, we obtain a two-qubit GQG [2]. We clarified that geometric phase gates are really useful in QIT. \\[4pt] [1]Y.\ Kondo \& M.\ Bando, {\it J. Phys. Soc.
