QEC 2019 Registration Now Open

Dear colleagues,
I am very pleased to announce that registration is now open for the 5th International Conference on Quantum Error Correction. QEC’19 will be taking place at Senate House, London from
29th July to 2nd August 2019.
You can register here:
We are also open until 1st April for submissions for contributed talks
QEC highlights recent advances in quantum error correction, quantum control
and related topics and important theme of the conference is the way quantum
error correction influences other fields of research in quantum information,
quantum technologies, physics and computer science. Information about
previous conferences in the series can be found at QEC7
Senate House is a striking art-deco building which is the headquarters of the
University of London. It is situated next to the British Museum in the heart
of London. Please see our web-page for further information about the:

Quantum Physics and Logic Conference

CALL FOR PAPERS

16th International Conference on
Quantum Physics and Logic
(QPL 2019)

June 10-14, 2019
Chapman University, Orange,
California, USA

https://qpl2019.org

* * *

The 16th International Conference on Quantum Physics and Logic
(QPL 2019) will take place at Chapman University June 10-14, 2019.

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.

IMPORTANT DATES

April  1: abstract submission
April  7: paper submission
April 30: application for student support
May   12: notification of authors
May   17: early registration deadline
May   24: final papers ready
June 10-14: conference

INVITED SPEAKERS

John Baez (UC Riverside)
Anna Pappa (University College London)
Joel Wallman (University of Waterloo)

INVITED TUTORIALS

Ana Belen Sainz (Perimeter Institute)
Quanlong Wang (University of Oxford)

SUBMISSIONS

Prospective speakers are invited to submit one (or more) of the
following:

– Original contributions consist of a 5-12 page extended abstract
that 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.

– 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.

The conference proceedings will be published in Electronic
Proceedings in Theoretical Computer Science (EPTCS) after the
conference. Only “original contributions” are eligible to be
published in the proceedings.

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=qpl2019

There will be an award for the best student paper at the discretion
of the programme committee. Papers eligible for the award are those
where all the authors are students at the time of submission.
