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.
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 a 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 can build a premier meeting of quantum minds and advance the fields of quantum computing and engineering. Even 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 2021 hopes to receive outstanding contributions from the international quantum community to form an exceptional program with exciting exhibits featuring technologies from quantum companies, start-ups and research labs, world-class keynote speakers, workforce-building tutorials, community-building workshops, technical paper presentations, stimulating panels, innovative posters, and Birds-of Feather sessions.
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.
