About IEEE Quantum Week
IEEE Quantum Week is a multidisciplinary quantum computing venue where attendees will 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 invites contributions and participation from the international quantum community to form a world-class program. The multi-faceted event will include a series of keynotes, technical paper presentations, technical briefings, informative tutorials throughout the week, community-building workshops, collocated events, 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 quantum workforce, nurturing quantum start-ups.
Proceedings & Best Papers
- Papers accepted by IEEE International Conference on Quantum Computing & Engineering (QCE20) will be submitted to IEEE Xplore Digital Library.
- The best papers will be invited to the journals IEEE Transactions on Quantum Engineering (TQE) and ACM Transactions on Quantum Computing (TQC).
- QCE20 will award one Best Paper Award for each of the eight Technical Program Tracks. The award for a QCE20 Best Paper will be presented in the plenary session of the morning keynote on the day the paper is being presented.
Call for Contributions and Papers
IEEE Quantum Week will provide attendees the unique opportunity to see the latest quantum technologies that will shape our exciting quantum future. Exhibits will feature the latest quantum technologies and accomplishments from the world’s leading companies, start-ups, national labs, research institutes, and universities. Exhibits are a great opportunity to showcase emerging products, tools, services, and posters. The Quantum Week exhibits will feature daily receptions to facilitate networking with participants of the rapidly growing quantum computing community.
IEEE Quantum Week aims to be a leading venue for presenting high-quality original research, groundbreaking innovations, and compelling insights in quantum computing and technologies. Technical papers are peer-reviewed and can be on any topic related to quantum computing and its technologies.
The IEEE Quantum Week Posters program presents excellent opportunities for practitioners, researchers, graduate students, entrepreneurs, and start-ups to showcase their work and engage with the international quantum computing R&D community during the IEEE Quantum Week Exhibits.
The shortage of skilled labor is one of the quantum computing sector’s greatest challenges. The week-long tutorials program, with half- and full-day tutorials by leading experts, is aimed squarely at workforce development and training considerations. The exclusive hands-on tutorials are ideally suited to develop quantum champions for industry, academia, government, and build expertise for emerging quantum ecosystems.
IEEE Quantum Week Workshops provide forums for small-group discussions on topics in quantum research, practice, education, and applications. Workshops provide opportunities for researchers to exchange and discuss scientific and engineering ideas at an early stage before they have matured to warrant a conference or journal publication. In this manner, an IEEE Quantum Week workshop serves as an incubator for a scientific community to form a research roadmap or share a research agenda. Workshops are the key to sustaining, growing and evolving IEEE Quantum Week in the future.
IEEE Quantum Week aims to facilitate enlightening and impactful discussions among experts on different perspectives of quantum topics including hardware-software co-design, hybrid computing, quantum information science and programming education and training, or frontiers of quantum algorithms.
