Call For Papers


The Fifth International Symposium on Quantum Interaction (QI'2011,, 27-29 June 2011, Aberdeen, United Kingdom.

Quantum Interaction (QI) is an emerging field which is applying quantum theory (QT) to domains such as artificial intelligence, human language, cognition, information retrieval, biology, political science, economics, organisations and social interaction.

After highly successful previous meetings (QI'2007 at Stanford, QI'2008 at Oxford, QI'2009 at Saarbruecken, QI'2010 at Washington DC), the Fifth International Quantum Interaction Symposium will take place in Aberdeen, UK, from 27 to 29 June 2011.

This symposium will bring together researchers interested in how QT addresses problems in non-quantum domains. QI'2011 will also include a half day tutorial session on 26 June 2011, with a number of leading researchers delivering tutorial on the foundations of QT, the application of QT to human cognition and decision making, and QT inspired semantic information processing. The keynote speaker will be Dr. Christopher Fuchs, Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics, Canada.

***Call for Papers***

We are seeking submission of high-quality and original research papers that have not been previously published and are not under review for another conference or journal. Papers should address one or more of the following broad content areas, but not limited to:

- Artificial Intelligence (Logic, planning, agents and multi-agent systems);
- Biological or Complex Systems;
- Cognition and Brain (memory, cognitive processes, neural networks, consciousness);
- Decision Theory (political, psychological, cultural, organisational, social sciences);
- Finance and Economics (decision-making, mergers, corporate cultures);
- Information Processing and Retrieval;
- Language and Linguistics;

The post-conference proceedings of QI'2011 will be published by Springer in its Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series. Authors will be required to submit a final version 14 days after the conference to reflect the comments made at the conference. We will also consider organizing a special issue for a suitable journal to publish selected best papers.

***Important Dates***

28th March 2011: Abstract submission deadline;
1st April 2011: Paper submission deadline;
1st May 2011: Notification of acceptance;
