This is the thirteenth in a series of conferences that aims to bring together the leading researchers in the areas of quantum computation, quantum communication and quantum cryptography. TQC covers all theoretical aspects of quantum information.

Areas of interest include, but are not restricted to:

* quantum algorithms
* models of quantum computation
* quantum complexity theory
* simulation of quantum systems
* quantum cryptography
* quantum communication
* quantum information theory
* quantum estimation and measurement
* intersection of quantum information and condensed-matter theory
* quantum coding theory
* fault-tolerant quantum computing
* entanglement theory

Important dates:

* Paper/Talk/Early-Poster submission deadline: March 20, 2018
* Decision notification: May 10, 2018
* Final manuscript deadline: May 24, 2018
* Late-Poster submission deadline: June 8, 2018
* Conference: July 16-18, 2018

Two tracks: Conference (talk + proceedings) and Workshop (talk only). As the goal of TQC is to bring together researchers on all aspects of quantum information, submissions are solicited for two tracks:

* Conference (talk + proceedings): Submissions to this track must be original
papers that have not previously appeared in published form. Accepted papers
will be presented orally at the conference and will appear in the conference
proceedings. The PC will target a minimum of 10 articles to be published in
the proceedings.

* Workshop (talk only): We solicit submissions for talk-only papers; accepted
submissions will be presented orally at the conference but will not appear
in the proceedings. This track allows authors to publish their work elsewhere
and accepts already published material.

Depending on submissions received, preference may be given to submissions to the Conference Track. In recent years the overall acceptance rate for all papers submitted to TQC has been around 25%.

In addition to TQC, QSI is also hosting a satellite workshop on Quantum Software and Machine Learning immediately following it, July 19-20. The scope of the satellite workshop will include the following: (1) quantum software and programming environments; (2) the application of quantum algorithms to solve problems in machine learning; (3) the application of machine learning algorithms to currently challenging and unsolved problems in quantum information and many-body physics problems; and (4) the application of ideas in condensed matter physics and quantum computation to solve and understand problems in machine learning and artificial intelligence.
