CALL FOR PARTICIPATION
3rd International Workshop on Quantum Programming Languages
(QPL2005)
June 30 - July 1, 2005, Chicago, U.S.A.
Affiliated with LICS 2005
http://quasar.mathstat.uottawa.ca/~selinger/qpl2005/

Registration for this workshop is now available, please see below
for registration information and a list of talks. Note that the
early hotel registration deadline for LICS is May 1.
OVERVIEW:
The goal of this workshop is to bring together researchers working
on mathematical foundations 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 design 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, abstract models for quantum
computation, properties of quantum computing resources and
primitives, concurrent and distributed quantum computation,
compilation of quantum programs, semantical methods in quantum
information theory, and categorical models for quantum computation.
Previous workshops in this series were held in Ottawa (2003) and
Turku (2004).
REGISTRATION:
Registration and local arrangements will be handled through the
LICS 2005 main conference (http://homepages.inf.ed.ac.uk/als/lics/lics05/).
There will be a small fee for attending the workshop, which will
cover coffee breaks and the informal proceedings. Participants are
encouraged to register as early as possible, as this will help us
plan how many copies of the proceedings to print.
