We aim to bring together members of academia and industry who are interested in natural language processing, graphical languages, category theory and compositional models of complex systems, linguistics, artificial intelligence and tensor network methods. Our prime aims are to create a space for dialogue and encourage collaboration as well as provide a bridge between quantum computing and natural language processing.

The conference will be held at St Aldate's Church.
Oxford is the home of the oldest university in the English speaking world, and boasts many tourist attractions. It is easily reached from London's international Heathrow airport via the so-called airline bus service. For more information see these travel directions.
Oxford has a wide range of places to stay, including college accommodation, private rooms and flats, or short term properties to share, and many bed and breakfasts (B&Bs) and guest houses. Particularly well located are Courtyard Oxford City Centre, Rewley House, Old Bank Hotel, Malmaison Hotel Oxford and The Randolph Hotel. Please contact Destiny Chen should you need further information. Demand for accommodation in Oxford is high, so the rule of thumb is to book a place as soon as possible.
