QIP 2019

January 14-18, 2019
University of Colorado Boulder, USA

Call for submissions

The Conference on Quantum Information Processing (QIP) series is the premier annual meeting for theoretical quantum information research. Since 1998, the conference has featured breakthroughs by the leaders in the disciplines of computing, cryptography, information theory, mathematics and physics. The scientific objective of the series is to gather the theoretical quantum information community to present and discuss the latest groundbreaking work in the field. In 2018, QIP was held in Delft.

QIP 2019 is the 22nd Annual Conference on Quantum Information Processing and will be hosted by JILA and the University of Colorado at Boulder. QIP 2019 will feature a tutorial program, plenary talks, contributed talks, and a poster session.

We invite contributions, both for talks and posters, on outstanding recent research in the area of the theory of quantum information and computation. There will be a QIP Best Student Paper prize awarded. QIP will feature parallel tracks on each day of the conference.

Important dates

Submission instructions

All submissions for talks or posters must be made electronically through the online submission system EasyChair: QIP2019.

Contributed talks at QIP are intended to be representative of outstanding recent research contributions to the theory of quantum information and computation. In addition to a title and a short abstract (for the conference webpage in case of acceptance) each submission to QIP for a talk should consist of two components:

Best student paper prize

A submission is eligible for the student prize if and only if the main author(s) is/are a student(s) at the time of the submission and will present the work at QIP, and further a significant portion of the work (at least 60%) must have been done by said student(s), including the majority of the key ideas. Eligibility can only be indicated at the time of submission. All authors are notified if their paper has been labelled as eligible for the student prize, and have 14 days following submission to voice any disagreements about the paper's nomination to the PC chair. The PC chair is free to ask for any clarifications regarding the students' contributions at any time.

Instructions for poster-only submissions

Poster submissions use the same link as talk submissions. For poster-only submissions, only title and abstract are required (i.e., an extended abstract is not needed). A technical manuscript can be attached. Please indicate in the required field "speaker" the person that will present the poster at the conference.
