Paper Submission:

Quantum Information Processing (QIP) is a rapidly developing field of
research spanning both physics and computer science. As the name
implies, the field extends information processing (including computing
and cryptography) to physical regimes where quantum effects become

QIP 2011 is the fourteenth workshop on theoretical aspects of quantum
computing, quantum cryptography, and quantum information theory in a
series that started in Aarhus in 1998 and was held last year in
Zurich. QIP 2011 will feature plenary talks (called invited talks at
previous QIP workshops), featured papers (previously called long
contributed talks), contributed papers, and a poster session.

Submissions of abstracts for contributed papers are sought in research
areas related to quantum information science and quantum information
processing. A small number of contributed paper submissions will be
selected as featured papers. The submission to QIP should consist of
2-3 pages, containing a non-technical, clear and insightful
description of the results and main ideas, their impact, and their
importance to quantum information and computation.  In addition, the
submission should direct the reader to a technical version of the work
(this should preferably be online but otherwise can be provided as an
attachment). The submission should not consist of a compressed version
of the technical exposition of the paper, but instead should
facilitate the reading of the technical version and help the program
committee assess its importance. In exceptional cases, submissions
without technical versions may be accepted.

The 2-3 page abstracts of the accepted contributed papers and featured
papers will be posted on the QIP 2011 website.  More details will be
provided in the acceptance notices.
