IEEE Quantum Week 2020 Transitions to All-Virtual
The IEEE International Conference on Quantum Computing and Engineering (QCE20) will be conducted virtually, on 12-16 October 2020, instead of in-person in Colorado as originally scheduled. The multidisciplinary event focusing on quantum technology, research, development, and training has transitioned to fully virtual based on the importance of the health and safety of participants amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
The QCE20 conference program features over 270 hours of programming. Each day the QCE20 conference, also known as IEEE Quantum Week, will virtually deliver 9-10 parallel tracks of world-class keynotes, workforce-building tutorials, community-building workshops, technical paper presentations, innovative posters, and thought-provoking panels through a digital combination of pre-recorded and live-streamed sessions. Attendees will have the opportunity to participate in live Q&A sessions with keynote speakers and panelists, paper and poster authors, as well as tutorial and workshop speakers. Birds of a Feather, Networking, and Beautiful Colorado sessions spices up the program between technical sessions. The recorded QCE20 sessions will be available for on-demand until November 30.
“With our expansive technical program and lineup of incredible presentations from thought-leaders all over the globe, this is shaping up to be the quantum event of the year,” said Hausi Müller, QCE20 General Chair, IEEE Quantum Initiative Co-Chair. “I encourage all professionals and enthusiasts to become a quantum computing champion by engaging and participating in the inaugural IEEE International Conference on Quantum Computing & Engineering (QCE20).”
Workshops and tutorials will be conducted according to their pre-determined schedule in a live, virtual format. The QCE20 tutorials program features 16 tutorials by leading experts aimed squarely at workforce development and training considerations, and 21 QCE20 workshops provide forums for group discussions on topics in quantum research, practice, education, and applications.
QCE20 is co-sponsored by the IEEE Computer Society, IEEE Communications Society, IEEE Photonics Society, IEEE Council on Superconductivity, IEEE Electronics Packaging Society, IEEE Future Directions Quantum Initiative, and IEEE Technology and Engineering Management Society.
