Contributors are invited to submit a paper (at most 15 pages) presenting original, unpublished research results.

Please use the template file and the LIPIcs class file: LaTeX Template files
(If you have trouble using these files, please see the LIPIcs Manual )

If the authors believe that more details are essential to substantiate the main claims, they may include a clearly marked appendix (or a reference to a version on that will be read at the discretion of the program committee.

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 20 March 2014. 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.

Open reviewing

A new and experimental policy for TQC 2014 will be partial open reviewing. For accepted talks, a digest of the PC discussion will be posted on the website SciRate. The reviews will be signed by the PC as a whole and may not include the entire PC discussion. One of the main purposes of publishing reviews in this way is to help create a resource for quantum information that is similar to the AMS's MathSciNet.
