» Student bursaries now available!

Thanks to the generous sponsorship of University of Waterloo's Institute for Quantum Computing, we are able to offer a limited number of student travel bursaries to cover (or partially cover) travel costs for students wishing to attend QPL. To apply, send an email to giving your name, institution, days you wish to attend, and a brief summary of your background and interest in QPL.

» WARNING: Limited accommodation on Tuesday night

It's recently been brought to our attention that there is a huge Robbie Williams concert in Nijmegen on the second night of QPL (July 4). This means that most of the hotel rooms in the city centre are already booked.

However, (as of 11 May) there seem to still be good options on AirBnB and in nearby villiages. Groesbeek, Wijchen, Lent, Maldon, and even nearby cities like Arnhem and Utrecht have easy train or bus connections to central Nijmegen. In any event, we suggest all participants get their accommodation booked as soon as possible. If you have questions or concerns, email


The 14th International Conference on Quantum Physics and Logic (QPL) will be hosted by Radboud University between Monday 3 and Friday 7 July, 2017.

QPL is a conference that brings together researchers working on mathematical foundations of quantum physics, quantum computing, and related areas, with a focus on structural perspectives and the use of logical tools, ordered algebraic and category-theoretic structures, formal languages, semantical methods, and other computer science techniques applied to the study of physical behaviour in general. Work that applies structures and methods inspired by quantum theory to other fields (including computer science) is also welcome.

Previous QPL events were held in Glasgow (2016), Oxford (2015) Kyoto (2014), Barcelona (2013), Brussels (2012), Nijmegen (2011), Oxford (2010), Oxford (2009), Reykjavik (2008), Oxford (2006), Chicago (2005), Turku (2004), and Ottawa (2003).

The International Quantum Structures Association (IQSA) is hosting an intermediate workshop on Quantum Structures as a satellite event of QPL. The IQSA workshop will take place from Tuesday July 4th to Friday the 7th of July. IQSA brings together researchers who design and use quantum structures, ranging from quantum logics to various formal methods that can be applied to reason about quantum phenomena including traditional topics in the foundations of quantum mechanics as well as applications in quantum computation, quantum information and quantum communication. We welcome work on quantum foundational approaches, formal applications of quantum structures to physics, mathematics and philosophy as well as interdisciplinary applications of quantum structures.

By hosting IQSA and QPL together, we want to create a platform to encourage the discussion and collaboration between both the IQSA and QPL communities.

IQSA was founded in 1990, has hosted 16 international conferences and workshops till now. More information about the IQSA society, its members and friends, can be found online at .

Important dates

All deadlines are at 23:59 on the given day, Anywhere on Earth (UTC-12).

Submission of papers

Submissions are now open! Prospective speakers are invited to submit one (or more) of the following:

Extended versions of accepted original research contributions will be published in Electronic Proceedings in Theoretical Computer Science (EPTCS) after the conference.

Submissions should be prepared using LaTeX, and must be submitted in PDF format. Use of the EPTCS style is encouraged. Submission is done via EasyChair:

There will be an award for the best paper whose authors are all students, at the discretion of the programme committee.

This information is also available in the official Call for Papers.

Registration is now open! Click here to register and/or sign up the for the conference banquet.

The single registration allows entry to QPL and IQSA satellite workshop. Both events will be hosted at the LUX arthouse cinema in the centre of Nijmegen, where talks will be given in actual movie theatres, with big screens and comfy seats.

To help cover the venue and our other costs, we ask the following registration fees:

Students can register at a discounted rate. Early bird registration fee ends on 10 June. Depending on available funds, a limited number of fee waivers may be offered to those unable to afford this registration fee. If it is impossible for you to pay the cost of registration, please contact us at and briefly explain your circumstances.

There will be a conference banquet at De Vereeniging on Wednesday, 5 July, for an additional €68. This will be a 5-course meal with drinks. Please include any dietary requirements when you register.

Registration officially closes on 30 June. Registration after that date is at the committee's discretion. Send your request to
