Call for papers: Quantum Physics and Logic, JULY 2013, Barcelona
The 10th workshop on Quantum Physics and Logic (QPL) will take place at ICFO in Castelldefels, Barcelona between 17th and 19th JULY 2013.
This workshop will bring together researchers working on mathematical foundations of quantum physics, quantum computing and spatio-temporal causal structures, and in particular those that use logical tools, ordered algebraic and category-theoretic structures, formal languages, semantical methods and other computer science methods for the study of physical behaviour in general.
Previous QPL events were held in Ottawa (2003), Turku (2004), Chicago (2005), Oxford (2006),Reykjavik (2008), Oxford (2009), Oxford (2010), Nijmegen (2011), and Brussels (2012).
The confirmed invited speakers are:
Antonio Acin (ICFO, Barcelona)
Jonathan Barrett (University of Oxford, UK)
Yves Lafont (l'Universite d'Aix-Marseille, France)
Peter Selinger (Dalhousie University, Canada)
Submission Deadline: 17th May
Notification of Acceptance: 7th June
Papers Ready: 28th June
Prospective speakers are invited to submit a contribution to the workshop. Selected submissions will appear in the journal Information and Computation, a top journal in computer science. We are considering two kinds of contributions.
Short contributions consisting of a 3 page description of the work, and a link to a paper published elsewhere.
Longer original contributions consisting of a 5-12 page extended abstract which provides sufficient evidence of results of genuine interest and provides sufficient detail to allow the program committee to assess the merits of the work. Submissions of works in progress are encouraged but must be more substantial than a research proposal.
Submissions should be prepared using LaTeX, and must be submitted in PDF format, and can be done via EasyChair:
Bob Coecke (chair)
Matty Hoban (co-chair)
Ana Belen Sainz
