General Information

The 8th Conference on the Theory of Quantum Computation, Communication and Cryptography, will be held at the University of Guelph, from 21st - 23rd May 2013.

Quantum computation, quantum communication, and quantum cryptography are subfields of quantum information processing, an interdisciplinary field of information science and quantum mechanics. The TQC conference series focuses on theoretical aspects of these subfields. The objective of the conference is to bring together researchers so that they can interact with each other and share problems and recent discoveries. It will consist of invited talks, contributed talks, and a poster session.


Accepted papers and a selection of posters will appear in the proceedings of the conference, which are published electronically in the LIPIcs (Leibniz International Proceedings in Informatics) series, available through Dagstuhl's website. The LIPIcs series, guarantee perennial, free and easy electronic access, while the authors will retain the rights over their work (Attribution 3.0 Unported (CC BY 3.0)). Abstract material which has been previously published in another conference proceedings or journal (or which is scheduled for publication prior to TQC) will not be considered for acceptance at TQC. Abstract material can be published elsewhere after TQC. We encourage submissions to open access electronic repositories (e.g., arXiv). The proceedings will be published after TQC.

Notification and submission of extended abstract

All submitted manuscripts will be reviewed by the Program Committee, and notification of acceptance or rejection will be made on March 15, 2013. Authors of accepted papers for oral presentations or a poster session should prepare a short abstract (at most two pages on A4- or Letter-size paper using at least 11-point fonts) to be included in a booklet which will be distributed to participants during the conference.

  • The short abstract format is the same as the format for poster submission available here, so please use the same style files. Abstracts should be sent by May 5, 2013 in PDF format to tqc2013@gmail.com.
  • The PDF file should be named "TQC2013abstract_talk_(presentation number).pdf" for a talk or "TQC2013abstract_poster_(presentation number).pdf" for a poster, and the subject of the email should be the same as the file name.
