IEEE International Conference on Quantum Computing & Engineering (QCE22), IEEE Quantum Week 2022 for short, aims to be a leading venue for presenting high-quality original research, ground-breaking innovations, and compelling insights in quantum computing and engineering.

IEEE Quantum Week 2022 is a multidisciplinary quantum computing venue where attendees have the opportunity to discuss challenges and opportunities with quantum researchers, scientists, engineers, entrepreneurs, developers, students, practitioners, educators, programmers, and newcomers. Quantum Week aims to exchange and share experiences, challenges, research results, innovations, applications, pathways, and enthusiasm on all aspects of quantum computing and engineering.

In 2021, the inaugural IEEE Quantum Week received outstanding contributions from the international quantum community to form an exceptional program with 300+ hours of programming with 10 world-class Keynote speakers, 48 Technical Paper presentations, 30 innovative Posters, 18 stimulating Panels, 23 workforce-building Tutorials, 21 community-building Workshops, Birds-of-a-Feather sessions, and over 30 exciting Exhibits featuring technologies from quantum companies, start-ups, and research labs. The format of Quantum Week 2022 will be similar.

IEEE Quantum Week aims to showcase quantum research, practice, applications, education, and training including quantum development kits, software engineering methods & tools, algorithms, benchmarks & performance metrics, qubit technologies & engineering, quantum computing architectures as well as integration with classical high-performance computing (HPC) architectures, software infrastructure, hybrid quantum-classical computing, simulating chemical, physical and biological systems, quantum optimization techniques, and quantum machine learning (QML).

All papers must be original and not simultaneously submitted to another journal or conference. The following paper categories are available:

Full papers should:
(1) clearly describe innovative and original research, or
(2) report a survey on a research topic in the field. Technical papers are limited to 10 pages (including figures and tables and appendices), plus two additional pages for references.
Short papers are 4-6 pages, plus one page of references.
These papers should fall into one of the following categories:
New Ideas and Emergent Results (NIER) papers describe novel and promising ideas and/or techniques that are in an early stage of development.
Experience and Application papers describe the experiences gained from applying/evaluating quantum computing and engineering research results in practice.

It is encouraged that the partners from both practice and research join the effort as co-authors and that the paper reflects the perspective of both sides. The papers should emphasize the value of the experience for the community – especially the lessons learned due to the transfer of research results to practice.

Artifact papers describe model problems, exemplars, or useful sets of resources for the broader quantum computing and engineering community.

Each technical paper must conform at the time of submission to the IEEE Formatting Instructions (i.e., title in 24pt font and full text in 10pt type, LaTEX users must use \documentclass[10pt,conference]{IEEEtran} without including the compsoc or compsocconf option). The submission must also comply with the IEEE Policy on Authorship.

Workshops
IEEE Quantum Week 2022 Workshops provide forums for small-group (i.e., 20–50 participants) discussions on topics in quantum research, practice, education, and applications. Workshops provide opportunities for researchers, practitioners, scientists, engineers, entrepreneurs, developers, students, educators, programmers, and newcomers 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. Note IEEE Quantum Week is a highly multidisciplinary quantum computing venue where you can discuss challenges and opportunities with quantum researchers, scientists, engineers, entrepreneurs, developers, students, practitioners, educators, programmers, and newcomers.

Each workshop at IEEE Quantum Week 2022 is one day long (i.e., there are no half-day or two-day workshops). The QCE22 workshops must last 4.5 hours (i.e., 3 sessions of 90 mins). Participation in an IEEE Quantum Week 2021 workshop should preferably be open.

For information about workshop submission, contact the workshop chairs: (email)

Tutorials
The shortage of skilled labor is one of the quantum computing sector’s greatest challenges. The week-long tutorials program, with tutorials by leading experts, is aimed squarely at workforce development and training considerations. The tutorials are ideally suited to develop quantum champions for industry, academia, government, and build expertise for emerging quantum ecosystems. IEEE Quantum Week will cover a broad range of topics in quantum computing and technologies including a lineup of fantastic hands-on tutorials on programming and applications. Note IEEE Quantum Week is a highly multidisciplinary quantum computing venue where you can discuss challenges and opportunities with quantum researchers, scientists, engineers, entrepreneurs, developers, students, practitioners, educators, programmers, and newcomers.

Each tutorial at IEEE Quantum Week 2022 is one day long (i.e., there are no half-day or two-day tutorials). QCE22 tutorials must last 4.5 hours (i.e., 3 sessions of 90 mins).

Panels
IEEE Quantum Week 2022 aims to facilitate enlightening and impactful discussions among experts on different perspectives of quantum computing and engineering. Suggested panel topics include but are not limited to quantum technologies, quantum start-ups, hardware-software co-design, hybrid quantum-classical computing, NISQ applications, post-quantum cryptography, quantum programming education & training, quantum workforce training, or frontiers of quantum information science & algorithms. The goal is to gather diverse researchers and practitioners in sharing their insightful perspectives and engaging the broader community in a dialogue. The length of each panel session is 45-90 minutes.

Posters
The IEEE Quantum Week Posters program presents excellent opportunities for graduate students, undergraduate students, researchers, practitioners, entrepreneurs, and start-ups to showcase their work and engage with the international quantum computing R&D community during the IEEE Quantum Week Exhibits. Posters are intended to stimulate discussions of recent advances, experiences, and challenges in quantum computing and engineering.

Posters will also include an extended abstract (up to two pages) that will be published in the conference proceedings.

A poster proposal must be one PDF file containing the following sections, in this order:

Poster title
Poster authors and contact information
Poster abstract (up to 250 words) to be posted on the conference website
