IEEE Quantum Week — the IEEE International Conference on Quantum Computing and Engineering (QCE) — is bridging the gap between the science of quantum computing and the development of an industry surrounding it. As such, this event brings a perspective to the quantum industry different from academic or business conferences. IEEE Quantum Week is a multidisciplinary quantum computing and engineering venue that gives attendees the unique opportunity to discuss challenges and opportunities with quantum researchers, scientists, engineers, entrepreneurs, developers, students, practitioners, educators, programmers, and newcomers.
IEEE Quantum Week 2021 received outstanding contributions from the international quantum community forming an exceptional program with exciting exhibits featuring technologies from quantum companies, start-ups and research labs. QCE21, the second IEEE International Conference on Quantum Computing and Engineering, provides over 300 hours of quantum and engineering programming featuring 10 world-class keynote speakers, 17 workforce-building tutorials, 23 community-building workshops, 48 technical papers, 29 innovative posters, 18 stimulating panels, and Birds-of a Feather sessions. The QCE21 program is structured into 10 parallel tracks over six days, October 17-22, 2021 and is available on-demand for registered participants until the end of the year.
The QCE conference grew out of the IEEE Future Directions Quantum Initiative in 2019 and held its inaugural IEEE Quantum Week event in October 2020. IEEE Quantum Week 2020 was tremendous success with over 800 attendees from 45 countries and 270+ hours of quantum computing and engineering programming in nine parallel tracks over five days.
With your contributions and your participation, together we are building a premier meeting of quantum minds to help advance the fields of quantum computing and engineering. As a virtual event, Quantum Week provides ample opportunities to network with your peers and explore partnerships with industry, government, and academia. Quantum Week 2021 aims to bring together quantum professionals, researchers, educators, entrepreneurs, champions and enthusiasts to exchange and share their experiences, challenges, research results, innovations, applications, pathways and enthusiasm on all aspects of quantum computing and engineering.
IEEE Quantum Week aims to showcase quantum research, practice, applications, education, and training including programming systems, software engineering methods & tools, algorithms, benchmarks & performance metrics, hardware engineering, architectures, & topologies, software infrastructure, hybrid quantum-classical computing, architectures and algorithms, as well as many applications including simulation of chemical, physical and biological systems, optimization problems, techniques and solutions, and quantum machine learning.
