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.
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. The submission should highlight new conceptual contributions and make the ideas involved as broadly accessible as possible. 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 (even 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. As the scope of the conference is recent work, resubmissions will typically be rejected unless they involve major improvements over previous submission.
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.
