CALL FOR PAPERS The 14th International Conference on Quantum Physics and Logic (QPL) July 3-7, 2017 Radboud Universiteit, Nijmegen, Netherlands http://qpl.cs.ru.nl The 14th International Conference on Quantum Physics and Logic (QPL) will take place at Radboud University between Monday 3 and Friday 7 July, 2017. The conference brings together researchers working on mathematical foundations of quantum physics, quantum computing, and related areas, with a focus on structural perspectives and the use of logical tools, ordered algebraic and category-theoretic structures, formal languages, semantical methods, and other computer science techniques applied to the study of physical behaviour in general. Work that applies structures and methods inspired by quantum theory to other fields (including computer science) is also welcome. Previous QPL events were held in Glasgow (2016), Oxford (2015), Kyoto (2014), Barcelona (2013), Brussels (2012), Nijmegen (2011), Oxford (2010), Oxford (2009), Reykjavik (2008), Oxford (2006), Chicago (2005), Turku (2004), and Ottawa (2003). INVITED SPEAKERS Jamie Vicary Miguel Navasques Matthias Christandl Paulo Perinotti INVITED TUTORIALS Bart Jacobs (effectus theory) Dan Marsden (categorical string diagrams) Ronald de Wolf (quantum algorithms) Simon Perdrix (TBC) SATELLITES There will be a satellite workshop on Quantum Structures hosted by the International Quantum Structures Association (IQSA) from Tuesday July 4th to Friday the 7th. Look out for details on the QPL website and via an official announcement later this year! IMPORTANT DATES Submission: 21 April, 2017 Notification: 29 May Papers ready: 23 June Conference: 3-7 July SUBMISSIONS Prospective speakers are invited to submit a contribution to the conference. - Original contributions consist of a 5-12 page extended abstract which provides sufficient evidence of results of genuine interest and enough detail to allow the program committee to assess the merits of the work. Submission of substantial albeit partial results of work in progress is encouraged. Authors of accepted papers will be invited to give long or short talks, depending on the quality and/or maturity of the submission. - Extended abstracts describing work submitted/published elsewhere will also be considered, provided the work is recent and relevant to the conference. These consist of a 3 page description and should include a link to a separate published paper or preprint. Extended versions of accepted original research contributions will be published in Electronic Proceedings in Theoretical Computer Science (EPTCS) after the conference. Submissions should be prepared using LaTeX, and must be submitted in PDF format. Use of the EPTCS style is encouraged. Submission is done via EasyChair: https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=qpl2017 There will be an award for the best paper whose authors are all students, at the discretion of the programme committee. REGISTRATION Registration will be opened later, please visit the website for more details.
