CALL FOR PARTICIPATION
2nd International Workshop on Quantum Programming Languages
(QPL2004)
July 12-13, 2004, Turku, Finland
Affiliated with LICS 2004
http://quasar.mathstat.uottawa.ca/~selinger/qpl2004/

Registration for this workshop is now available, please see below
for registration information and a list of talks.
OVERVIEW:
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.
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.
The first workshop in this series was held June 15-16, 2003, in
Ottawa, Canada.
REGISTRATION:
Registration and local arrangements will be handled through the
LICS 2004 main conference (http://www.dcs.ed.ac.uk/home/als/lics/lics04/).
There will be a small fee for attending the workshop, which will
cover lunch, coffee, and the informal proceedings.
