 LOS ALAMITOS, Calif., 24 March 2021 – The IEEE International Conference on Quantum Computing and Engineering (QCE 2021), 18 – 22 October 2021, is bridging the gap between the science of quantum computing and the development of an industry surrounding it. Bringing a perspective to the quantum industry that is different from academic or business conferences, the all-virtual QCE 2021 will reveal cutting-edge research and developments featuring quantum research, practice, applications, education, and training.

Participation opportunities are available for a limited time.  Authors are invited to submit contributions for technical papers, tutorials, workshops, panels, posters, and Birds-of-a-Feather sessions. Papers accepted by QCE21 will be submitted to the IEEE Xplore Digital Library, and the best papers will be invited to the journals IEEE Transactions on Quantum Engineering (TQE) and ACM Transactions on Quantum Computing (TQC). The submission schedule is available at QCE21 Submission Deadlines.

The high standards for QCE21 were set by the tremendous success of the inaugural QCE20. Over 800 people from 45 countries and 225 companies attended the premier event that delivered 270+ hours of programming on quantum computing and engineering.

The second annual Quantum Week will virtually connect a wide range of leading quantum professionals, researchers, educators, entrepreneurs, champions and enthusiasts to exchange and share their experiences, challenges, research results, innovations, applications, and enthusiasm, on all aspects of quantum computing, engineering and technologies.  The IEEE Quantum Week schedule will take place during Mountain Daylight Time (MDT).
