Quantum Physics and Logic 2019

10-14 juin 2019

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.


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


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


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


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:

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.
