Call for papers

The 21st International Conference on Quantum Physics and Logic (QPL 2024)

Buenos Aires, Argentina, July 15-19, 2024

Quantum Physics and Logic is an annual conference that brings together academic and industry researchers working on mathematical foundations of quantum computation, quantum physics, and related areas. The main focus is on the use of algebraic and categorical structures, formal languages, type systems, semantic methods, as well as other mathematical and computer scientific techniques applicable to the study of physical systems, physical processes, and their composition. Work applying quantum-inspired techniques and structures to other fields (such as linguistics, artificial intelligence, and causality) is also welcome.


  • Abstract submission: February 26, 2024
  • Paper submission deadline: March 4, 2024 March 8, 2024 (extended)
  • Notification: April 29, 2024 May 4, 2024 (delayed)
  • Camera-ready deadline: June 15, 2024
  • Conference: July 15-19, 2024

All deadlines are midnight anywhere-on-earth (AoE); late submissions will not be considered.

Submissions guidelines:

Prospective speakers are invited to submit one (or more) of the following:
  • Proceedings paper. This consists of a 5-12 page paper. It must provide sufficient evidence of original results of genuine interest, in sufficient detail, for the program committee to assess the merits of the work. Proceedings submissions must use the EPTCS style files.
  • Talk proposal. This consists of a 3-page summary along with a link to a separate published paper or preprint. If the published paper or preprint is not publicly available (e.g. not open access), then it must be included in full after the summary.
  • Poster. This consists of a 3-page abstract of (partial) results or work in progress.
  • Programming tool submission. This consists of a 3-page description of a programming tool or framework, with a strong preference for open-source contributions.

Submission is via EasyChair at the following URL:


Authors of accepted submissions are expected to present their work during the conference in person (e.g. by giving a talk, presenting a poster or tool demo).
There will be an award for Best Student Paper at the discretion of the Program Committee. Papers eligible for the award are those where all the authors are students at the time of submission.

Conference Proceedings

Conference proceedings will be published in Electronic Proceedings in Theoretical Computer Science (EPTCS) after the conference.
