The 13th Asian Conference on Quantum Information Science (AQIS'13)

2013-08-26 - 2013-08-30
Chennai, India

AQIS'13 is a meeting focused on quantum information processing, communication and cryptography, an interdisciplinary field bridging quantum physics, computer science, mathematics, and information
technologies. This event, which is the thirteenth in a highly successful series, building upon EQIS'01-05 and AQIS'06-12, is coming to India for the first time, having been held previously in Japan, China and Korea. This is the prime Asian conference in the field.

Organized by the Institute of Mathematical Sciences, AQIS'13 will take place in Chennai, India, from 25 to 30 August 2013. Details about the conference are available via the website, which we invite you to visit often as new information will appear regularly.

AQIS’13 will consist of invited talks, selected oral and poster presentations, as well as other activities.

We are very pleased to announce a spectacular array of invited speakers (to be completed):

  • Girish S Agarwal (Oklahoma State University, USA)
  • Alain Aspect* (Institut d'Optique, Palaiseau, France)
  • Nicolas Gisin (Université de Genève, Switzerland)
  • Lov K Grover* (Bell Laboratories, New Jersey, USA)
  • Jian-Wei Pan (University of Science and Technology of China, Hefei, China)
  • Masahide Sasaki (Nat. Inst. of Information and Communications, Tokyo, Japan)
  • Umesh Vazirani (University of California, Berkeley, USA)

*To be confirmed

Contributions are solicited in (but not limited to) the following areas:

  • Quantum computation, algorithms and complexity
  • Quantum information theory
  • Quantum decoherence fighting concepts, methods and tools
  • Quantum cryptography
  • Quantum communications experiments and theory
  • Quantum technologies (optics-, NMR- and solid-state, etc.)
  • Quantum processor and computer design
  • Quantum programming languages and semantics

The submission deadline is 16 June 2013, 23:59 in US Pacific Daylight Time. Please pay special attention to the fact (new for AQIS) that all submissions MUST follow the guidelines specified at . Submissions deviating significantly from these guidelines will be rejected without consideration of their merits.

We are looking forward to seeing you in Chennai!
