Call for Technical Papers

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. Papers accepted by IEEE International Conference on Quantum Computing & Engineering (QCE 2020) 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).

Accepted Technical Papers

To be published here by July 18, 2020

Hybrid/virtual QCE20: Due to COVID-19, there is a fair chance that QCE20 will be hybrid with virtual components. If we have virtual components, then we will ask technical paper presenters to provide a pre-recorded video for their technical paper. The pre-recorded video of your paper will be streamed at the time scheduled for your paper. At the end of your presentation, QCE20 attendees will be able to interact with you for a few minutes of Q&A. Attendees can submit questions during the video streaming. A session question curator will compile the question for you. QCE20 attendees will be able to view your paper video throughout the conference. For QCE20 updates, regarding the COVID-19 situation, please refer to the QCE20 COVID-19 page.
