Call For Papers

The 1st workshop on Hybrid Classical Quantum Systems (HCQS), co-located with Euro-Par 2024, will be held in Madrid, Spain, on August 26-27, 2024.

The advent of the Post-Moore era is driving the HPC research community towards alternative forms of computing, also known as Post-Moore computing. Quantum computing is particularly appealing for HPC, due to its proven theoretical speedup for suitable problems. Since not all the computational tasks will benefit from execution on quantum hardware, quantum systems have to be integrated with HPC infrastructures to exploit the full potential of quantum hardware. However, integration of quantum hardware into HPC infrastructure is a cumbersome task, due to the different programming models used in quantum with respect to HPC applications, the high heterogeneity of quantum hardware (i.e., superconducting qubits, ion-traps, photonics, neutral atoms), the necessity of pre-processing classical data (i.e., encoding into a quantum state) and post-processing quantum computation results (i.e., error mitigation). All these open research challenges contributed to the development of a new research area that lies at the intersection of HPC and quantum information and computation, called Hybrid Classical Quantum Systems (HCQS).

We invite submissions of high-quality, original research results and work-in-progress on Hybrid Classical-Quantum Systems. Topics of interest specifically include, but are not limited to:

- Quantum Machine Learning
- Quantum Optimization
- Integration of Quantum and Classical Systems
- Hybrid Classical-Quantum Applications
- Programming models and Compilers for Hybrid Classical-Quantum Systems
- Benchmarking of Hybrid Classical-Quantum Systems

All submissions will be single-blind peer reviewed and accepted papers will receive a slot for an oral presentation and will be published in the LNCS workshop proceedings of Euro-Par 2024. It is a requirement that at least one author of each accepted paper attends the workshop.

Paper Submission Guidelines
The workshop is soliciting full papers between 10 and 12 pages (excluding references, LNCS single-column format), presenting original, previously unpublished research achievements, whether work-in-progress, position papers or mature work. Formatting information and templates are available online:

Contributions should be submitted in PDF format to EasyChair:

Organizing Committee
- Vincenzo De Maio (TU Wien)
- Philipp Gschwandtner (University of Innsbruck)
