The submission to AQIS should consist of 2 to 3 pages, 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 submission must refer to a technical version of the work, either posted to an online repository, such as, or included with the submission as an attachment. The main submission should not consist of 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 at the discretion of the program committee only. The space limit of 2 to 3 pages concerns a text written in an at least 11-point font (preferably 12 points) convenient enough for the PC members to read. References can use additional pages.

Submissions deviating significantly from these guidelines WILL BE REJECTED without consideration of their merits. The 2 to 3 page abstracts of the accepted contributed papers will be posted on the AQIS website.
