Call for papers: Special Issue in Quantum Structures in Computer Science - Theoretical Computer Science

Submission Deadline: 15 June 2017.
This special issue aims at opening the quantum theoretical approach to the community of computer and information scientists, explaining how the quantum mechanical formalism addresses the challenges of the dynamic and multi-modal nature of data and user interaction context, and hence can be successfully applied to natural language, semantics and information access and retrieval, and related problems.

Identity & Otherness

The theme of "Identity & Otherness" encompasses a number of fundamental questions: What distinguishes the self from the other? How does an identity emerge? How do we draw boundaries between inside and outside, between system and environment, between the one and the other? How can we categorize different appearances, states or situations as belonging to the same phenomenon? This fundamental issue runs through the whole of science and philosophy. As such, the answer to these questions defines an essential building block of an eventual integrating world view.
