Special Issue "Quantum Information Processing"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 May 2020).
Quantum information is a growing research field with the aim of exploiting quantum systems to enhance information processing tasks. Indeed, the adoption of quantum resources promises to disclose strong advantages in several fields. Notable examples are communication tasks, the intrinsically secure transmission of information over long distances, improved sensitivity in the estimation of unknown parameters, the simulation of complex physical systems through quantum platforms, or quantum algorithms enabling enhanced performance in computational tasks.
These promises have led to growing research efforts both from a theoretical and an experimental point of view. On the one hand, great interest has been devoted to investigating and developing novel protocols that exploit quantum resources for enhanced information processing. On the other hand, significant advances have been made in the last few years to identify the most suitable platform for each task, as well as to push the technology towards handling progressively larger quantum systems. All these research efforts have contributed to establishing a worldwide growing community working in the field, which is progressively attracting researchers from other fields, disclosing novel platforms and approaches.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Entropy is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1800 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
