IEEE Quantum Week 2022 Workshops provide forums for group (i.e., 20–50 participants) discussions on QCE22 topics in quantum research, practice, education, and applications. Workshops provide opportunities for researchers, practitioners, scientists, engineers, entrepreneurs, developers, students, educators, programmers, and newcomers 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 a forum for common interests or 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. Note IEEE Quantum Week is a multidisciplinary quantum computing venue.
Each workshop at IEEE Quantum Week 2022 is 4.5 hours long (i.e., three sessions on the same day of 90 mins).
Session 1 — Quantum Trends — 10:00-11:30 MDT
This session, lead by Andy Chen, IEEE TEMS, will bring together quantum industry experts from various geographies. The panel will discuss the quantum industry and its directions, share complex problems the industry has, which may be solved by Quantum Computing (QC). Are companies internalizing QC? How are they getting prepared? Etc.
Session 2 — Academic Researchers as Quantum Entrepreneurs — 13:00-14:30 MDT
This session, lead by Rafael Sotelo of Quantum South & Universidad de Montevideo Uruguay, will review experiences and best practices on how universities support their emerging QC entrepreneurs through startup accelerators, Intellectual Property protection, equity distribution, fundraising, etc. The session consists of individual presentations of each panelist, followed by a Q&A panel.
Session 3 — Transforming Academic Research to Technology Startups — 15:15-16:00 MDT
This session, lead by Joanne Wong of IEEE Entrepreneurship, will cover how universities are at the cutting edge of research and innovation. They are the birthplace of many of the ideas and technologies incorporated into the companies and the products that we see and use daily. How do these technologies move from the university into successful startup companies, and ultimately into the hands of the user? Please join our panelists for a roundtable discussion of how to work with universities to license technologies, how to form a successful startup venture around those innovations, and what resources might be available to aid in that success.
Session 4 — Quantum Funding Panel — 16:00-16:45 MDT
This session, lead by Joanne Wong of IEEE Entrepreneurship, consist of helping the quantum startups navigate the funding foray whether that be from VCs or from government grants. They will review particular aspects of investing and accessing government grants in QC. QC is a field where concrete applications are some years ahead. What do an investor look for in a QC start-up? How is a QC start-up valued? People? IP? Product? Business leads? How are government grants setup for QC startups? Get the perspective from the funder as well as the fundee.
Session 1 — 10:00-11:30 MDT (UTC-6) — Applications of Quantum Computing to Consumer Technology: a view from the industry
This session will consist of a panel of people from CT and QC industries who will discuss potential applications of one field to the other. The session consists of individual presentations of each panelist, followed by a Q&A panel.
Session 2 — 13:00-14:30 MDT (UTC-6) — Quantum Computing and Consumer Technology from academia and research perspective
This session will bring together researchers from Consumer Technology and from Quantum Computing to explore how they envision the convergence of both fields. The session consists of individual presentations of each panelist, followed by a Q&A panel.
Session 3 — 15:15-16:45 MDT (UTC-6)— Enabling technologies and services for applying Quantum Computing to Consumer Technology
This session will discuss the capabilities of quantum computing hardware and services necessary for applying Quantum Computing to Consumer Technology. Current state and roadmaps will also be discussed.
