International Quantum Structures Association
Formation1990; 33 years ago (1990)
Roberto Leporini

The International Quantum Structures Association (IQSA) is an association of professional scientists dedicated to mathematical structures related to quantum mechanics. It serves an international community through its biannual conferences, publications, and by awarding the Birkhoff-von Neumann prize.

The IQSA was founded in 1990 as a non-profit scientific organisation.


The IQSA organises an international conference every two years. These have been recognised as important to bring the community together.[1][2][3]
