Call for submissions

We invite contributions, both for talks and posters, on outstanding recent research in the theory of quantum information and computation. A QIP Best Student Paper prize will be awarded.

BEST STUDENT PAPER PRIZE

 A submission is eligible for the Best Student Paper 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%) has been done by said student(s), including contributing the majority of the key ideas. Eligibility can only be indicated at the time of submission. The PC chair is free to ask for any clarifications regarding the students' contributions at any time.

 

INSTRUCTIONS FOR TALK SUBMISSIONS 

All submissions must be made electronically through the online submission system EasyChair.  

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 website in case of acceptance), each submission to QIP for a talk should consist of the following two components.

 

Extended Abstract: This should be 1 to 3 pages in length and contain a nontechnical, clear, and insightful description of the results and main ideas, their potential impact, and their importance to quantum information and computation. Extended abstracts should not be a compressed version of a full paper, but instead should facilitate an intuitive understanding of the research results that they represent and help the program committee assess their importance. Extended abstracts should be in PDF format and typeset in single-column form with reasonable margins and font size at least 11 points. The 3-page maximum does not include references. Authors who submitted (at least part) of the work to any previous QIP should clarify what is the difference compared to their earlier submission on the first page of the Extended Abstract.

 

Technical Manuscript: This is a full paper describing the work, including technical details. This manuscript may be from an on-line repository, such as arXiv; however, a PDF copy of it must be uploaded. If your submission consists of multiple technical papers they should be merged into a single file.

 

The Program Committee reserves the right to decide how to treat submissions that deviate from the above format, including rejection of submissions solely on the basis of their format.

 

Submissions not accepted as a talk will automatically be considered as a poster.

 

An author can contact the Program Committee chair or co-chair directly if he or she has a serious and substantive conflict of interest with an individual who is likely to be asked to serve as a subreviewer for the paper. This has to be done immediately after the submission, and should include a detailed justification.

 

INSTRUCTIONS FOR POSTER-ONLY SUBMISSIONS 

Poster submissions should be made using the same submission system as talk submissions. For poster-only submissions, only a 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 "presenter" the person that will present the poster at the conference.

 

EASYCHAIR INSTRUCTIONS

Go to https://easychair.org to log in (or create an account if you have not used EasyChair before). Then go to https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=qip2023 to create a submission, select the appropriate track (talk or poster-only) and follow the instructions. Please check the box for Best Student Paper Prize only if all co-authors of this submission are aware of the eligibility criteria of the prize and actually support the choice. Authors are also required to choose exactly one topic among the following list: cryptography, information theory, foundations, many-body systems, algorithms, error correction, complexity, learning and other topics in quantum computing. Note that this is only to facilitate internal coordination of the reviewing process, as the number of submissions continues to grow. QIP remains a single-submission-track conference, and the reviewing will not be divided into separate tracks with separate panels.

 

You may update or withdraw submissions up until the deadline; only the latest version will be reviewed. Submissions will be automatically closed immediately after the deadline, so early submissions are encouraged.

 

RESUBMISSION TO CONFERENCES WITH A SIMILAR SCOPE 

As a research community, our goal is that contributed talks at quantum information conferences reflect the breadth of our field. We therefore discourage resubmission of works presented as a talk at QIP to conferences with a similar scope, such as TQC.
