                  SECOND CALL FOR PAPERS

           The 13th International Conference on
              Quantum Physics and Logic (QPL)

                    June 6-10, 2016
        University of Strathclyde, Glasgow, Scotland


The 13th International Conference on Quantum Physics and Logic (QPL)
will take place at the University of Strathclyde between Tuesday 7 and
Friday 10 June, 2016.

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.

Previous QPL events were held in Oxford (2015), Kyoto (2014),
Barcelona (2013), Brussels (2012), Nijmegen (2011), Oxford (2010),
Oxford (2009), Reykjavik (2008), Oxford (2006), Chicago (2005),
Turku (2004), and Ottawa (2003).

Submission: March 13, 2016
Notification: April 24
Papers ready: May 29
Tutorials: June 6
Conference: June 7-10


Prospective speakers are invited to submit a contribution to the conference.

 - Original contributions consist of a 5-12 page extended abstract which
   provides sufficient evidence of results of genuine interest and
   detail to allow the program committee to assess the merits of the work.
   Submission of substantial albeit partial results of work in progress is

 - Short contributions will also be considered, and consist of a 3 page
   description including a link to work that has already been published
   or submitted elsewhere, provided it is recent and relevant to the

Extended versions of accepted original research contributions will be
published in Electronic Proceedings in Theoretical Computer Science
(EPTCS) after the conference.

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=qpl2016

There will be an award for the best paper whose authors are all students,
at the discretion of the programme committee.


If you are planning to come you must register. Registration is now open:


Thanks to our generous sponsors, limited funding is available to support
participation of graduate students and those with caregiving
If you would like to apply for financial support please send an email to
