In 2017, UTS:QSI had another fruitful year at the Annual ACM Symposium on the Theory of Computing (STOC), with two papers accepted. STOC, and its sister conference, the IEEE Symposium on Foundations of Computer Science (FOCS), are widely regarded as the most prestigious conferences in theoretical computer science. In June, Professor Zhengfeng Ji and Chancellor’s Postdoc Dr. Nengkun Yu left for Montreal, Canada to attend the 49th Annual ACM Symposium on the Theory of Computing (STOC), to present their accepted paper “Compression of Quantum Multi-Prover Interactive Proofs” (by Prof Ji) and “Exponential Separation of Quantum Communication and Classical Information” (by Dr. Yu and his collaborators).
The complete list of UTS:QSI accepted papers at STOC 2017 are:
• Zhengfeng Ji. Compression of Quantum Multi-prover Interactive Proofs. (arXiv:1610.03133)
• Anurag Anshu, Dave Touchette, Penghui Yao, and Nengkun Yu. Exponential Separation of Quantum Communication and Classical Information. (arXiv:1611.08946)
