Conference format

The scientific program will consist of invited talks, tutorials, contributed long talks, contributed short talks and poster sessions. By default, each submission will be considered for a long talk, a short talk, or a poster, in this order of preference. The submissions page allows authors to express their preference for talk or poster. There will also be a best student poster award.

Please note that AQIS does not have published proceedings, so authors are welcome to submit work that has been previously published, and acceptance at AQIS will not impact the ability to publish work in other venues.

Submission Guidelines

Each submission will be reviewed by the programme committee on the basis of an extended abstract describing the original research. The extended abstract should clearly explain within 2-3 pages the contribution and its significance.


The submission to AQIS should consist of a 2 to 3 page extended abstract, containing a non-technical, clear and insightful description of the results and main ideas, their impact, and their importance to quantum information and computation. In addition, the extended abstract should refer to a technical version of the work, either posted to an online repository, such as, or uploaded as an appendix after the extended abstract. In all cases, the total submission must be uploaded as a single file.

The extended abstract should not be just a compressed version of the technical exposition of the paper, but instead should help the program committee assess its importance. The technical version will be considered only at the discretion of the program committee. The space limit of 2 to 3 pages concerns a text written in an at least 11-point font (preferably 12 point) convenient enough for the PC members to read. References can use additional pages.

Submissions deviating significantly from these guidelines may be rejected without consideration of their merits.

Contributions must be submitted electronically via the submission website. AQIS’17 uses the EasyChair System to manage paper submissions. To submit your paper, you will first need to sign in to the EasyChair System, and then upload your single submission file in required field “Paper”.

The EasyChair submission page is here.


Best Student Poster Award

A submission is eligible only if the main author(s) is/are student(s), and at least 60% of the work has been done by the student(s), including a majority of the key ideas. Eligibility should be indicated at the time of submission by checking the ‘eligible for student poster award’ box on the EasyChair submission page. The PC chair reserves the right to ask for any clarifications regarding the student(s) contributions at any time. Eligible posters will be assessed by a committee during the poster sessions of the conference.
