The goal of this workshop is to bring together researchers working on mathematical formalisms and programming languages for quantum computing. In the last few years, there has been a growing interest in logical tools, languages, and semantical methods for analyzing quantum computation. These foundational approaches complement the more mainstream research in quantum computation which emphasizes algorithms and complexity theory.

The first workshop in this series was held June 15-16, 2003, in Ottawa, Canada.

Topics. Possible topics include the syntax and semantics of quantum programming languages, new paradigms for quantum programming, specification of quantum algorithms, higher-order quantum computation, quantum data types, reversible computation, axiomatic approaches to quantum computation, concurrent and distributed quantum computation, compilation of quantum programs, semantical methods in quantum information theory, and categorical models for quantum computation.

Special Issue of MSCS. There will be a special issue of the journal Mathematical Structures in Computer Science (MSCS, Cambridge University Press) devoted to this workshop and areas represented at the workshop. There will be a period of at least 4 months for revising and submitting the papers after the workshop.

Schedule. Follow this link for the workshop schedule.

Registration. Registration and local arrangements will be handled through the LICS 2004 main conference. There will be a small fee for attending the workshop, which will cover lunch, coffee, and proceedings.

Participants. Currently (as of June 22), 34 participants have registered for the workshop.
