About IEEE Quantum Week (QCE20)

May 14, 2020 Press Release

Registration is openIEEE Quantum Week is a multidisciplinary quantum computing venue where attendees have the unique opportunity to discuss challenges and opportunities with quantum researchers, scientists, engineers, entrepreneurs, developers, students, practitioners, educators, programmers, and newcomers.

IEEE International Conference on Quantum Computing and Engineering (QCE20) invites contributions and participation from the international quantum community to form a world-class program. The multi-faceted event will include a series of world-class keynotes, technical paper presentations, technical briefings, informative tutorials throughout the week, community-building workshops throughout the week, posters, networking receptions, and exhibits featuring the latest technologies and accomplishments from the world’s leading vendors, research organizations, and universities. IEEE Quantum Week aims to showcase quantum research, practice, applications, standards, education, and training. The extensive topics include quantum programming systems, software engineering methods & tools, algorithms, NISQ, benchmarks & metrology, performance metrics, hardware engineering, architectures, & topologies, hardware-software co-design, software stack & infrastructure, hybrid computing (integrating quantum & classical computing); communications, sensing, cryptography, QKD; simulating chemical, physical and biological systems; quantum photonics & optics; optimization, machine learning, ramping up the quantum workforce, nurturing quantum start-ups.
