IEEE Quantum Week Program
Quantum Week 2020, IEEE International Conference on Quantum Computing & Engineering (QCE20), 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, engineering and technologies.
The IEEE Quantum Week Conference invites contributions and participation from the international quantum community to form an exceptional program with outstanding keynotes, technical paper presentations, technical briefings, informative tutorials, community-building workshops, collocated events, exciting posters, and world-class exhibits.
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 computing, simulating chemical, physical and biological systems, optimization, machine learning. IEEE Quantum Week features Exhibits from Monday afternoon to Thursday afternoon with plenty of opportunities for networking. To facilitate interactions, the Exhibits host receptions Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday in the Exhibits space.
The Quantum Week 2020 program will feature nine outstanding proven keynote speakers addressing topics of the IEEE International Conference on Quantum Computing and Engineering. The plenary keynotes are intended to fire up the conference attendees at the beginning of each conference day and provide food for thought to stimulate discussion for the networking receptions in the exhibits hall at the end day. The keynote speakers will promote the virtues and state of the art of the different themes of quantum computing and engineering.

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.
