CFP: Quantum Physics and Logic, Nijmegen

8th workshop on QUANTUM PHYSICS AND LOGIC (QPL 2011)

Nijmegen, October 27-29, 2011.

This event will bring together researchers working on mathematical foundations of quantum physics, quantum computing and information, 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 physical behaviour in general. Over the past few years, there has been growing activity in these foundational approaches, together with a renewed interest in the foundations of quantum theory, which complement the more mainstream research in quantum computation.

Invited Speakers:

Hans Maassen (Nijmegen)
Urs Schreiber (Utrecht)
Rob Spekkens (Perimeter Institute)


Submission: Aug 27
Notification of authors: Sep 20
Corrected papers due: Oct 13


Prospective speakers are invited to submit a 5-12 page extended abstract that provides sufficient evidence of results of genuine interest and provides sufficient detail to allows 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 at


Extended versions of accepted talks will be published in Electronic Proceedings in Theoretical Computer Science (EPTCS) after the workshop.
