QPL 2023

The 20th International Conference on Quantum Physics and Logic (QPL 2023) will take place from 17 July to 21 July 2023 at Institut Henri Poincaré in Paris, France. 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.

Important Dates

All deadlines are stated with respect to the Anywhere on Earth (AoE) time zone.


Prospective speakers are invited to submit one (or more) of the following:

Page limits exclude bibliography and appendices (which may be read at the discretion of reviewers). All submissions will be handled by EasyChair.

There will be an award for Best Student Paper that will be determined by the Program Committee. Papers eligible for the award are those where all the authors are students at the time of submission.


Authors of accepted proceedings and non-proceedings submissions will be invited to give a long or short talk, depending on the quality and maturity of the submission. Authors of accepted poster submissions will be invited to present their work at the poster session. Authors of accepted programming tool submissions will be invited to live demo their tool to conference attendees, at the same time as the poster session.

Conference Proceedings

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

Local Information

The conference will take place at Institut Henri Poincaré in Paris, France.

We will update the website with more relevant information at a later time.
