Call for Book Chapters:

Quantum Computing is an emerging paradigm of research and development, 
with enormous potential to offer disruptive computational capabilities 
which can revolutionise many areas including data science, drug 
discovery, particle physics, materials design and optimisation tasks. 
This book aims to cover a broad range of topics, providing an up-to-date 
and comprehensive reference of the rapid progress in the field of 
quantum computing and related technologies from major international 
companies (such as IBM, Google, Intel, Rigetti, Q-Control) and academic 
researchers. The book will serve as a key source for a diverse range of 
audience including graduate students, industry developers and university

Important Dates - Proposed

Chapter Proposal: You are invited to submit a 1-2 pages proposal to 
describing the topic of your chapter. The proposal should include the 
chapter organization, anticipated number of pages of the final 
manuscript and brief biography of authors.  We plan to follow the 
timeline given below:

·         Proposal deadline: November 1, 2023 (Early expression of 
interest is highly encouraged)

·         Notification of proposal acceptance: Dec 15, 2023

·         Full draft chapter submission: March 1, 2024

·         Chapter review report to authors: April 30, 2024

·         Final version submission: June. 30, 2024

Early submission is highly appreciated as the editors would like to have 
progressive dialogue and work with prospective authors to bring out a 
book of wide appeal. Please submit your proposal in PDF / Word format 
using submission link https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=qcpp2023

If we receive more than one proposal for a chapter on the same topic, 
the editors may request authors to collaborate to develop an integrated 

Manuscript Submission

Each accepted chapter should have about 20-35 A4 pages. We expect to 
deliver CRC of the book to the publisher. A MS Word template will be 
provided later.
