Description

Quantum computing is a new paradigm that exploits fundamental principles of quantum mechanics to solve problems in various fields of science that are beyond possibilities of classical computing infrastructures. Despite increasing activity in both theoretical research and hardware implementations, reaching the state of useful quantum supremacy is still an open question. This topic aims to provide a forum for software developers, computer scientists and physicists  to understand and discuss research on current problems in quantum software development.

  • software engineering for hybrid (classical and quantum) computing
  • ‘co-design’ concept in quantum computing engineering
  • mechanisms and protocols for communication with quantum computers
  • development methodologies for quantum computing software
  • quality assurance processes in quantum software engineering
  • quantum computing software evolution and support
  • quantum software reuse and modularization
  • open source processes and licensing for quantum computing software
  • quantum error correction algorithms
  • quantum computing compilation/transpilation
