First International Workshop on
Quantum Technology and Optimization Problems (QTOP’19)
18th March, 2019, Munich, Germany
Over the last decade, a wide variety of experimental quantum computing hardware has been invented and used for fundamental demonstrations in laboratories. First results confirm feasibility of such hardware in real-world applications. Recently one can observe upcoming research in areas like traffic flow optimization, mobile sensor placement, machine learning, and many more. The development of quantum computing hardware, be it in the quantum gate model or adiabatic quantum computation (quantum annealing), made huge progress in the last years. This started to transfer knowhow from quantum technology based research to algorithms and applications. This development is offering numerous opportunities to contribute within research, theory, applied technologies and engineering.

QTOP 2019 will be held in conjunction with NetSys2019 ( in Munich, Germany on March 18th, 2019.

The following topics are crucial to the development of future improvements in networked systems based on quantum technology and optimization problems:

- Quantum algorithms and applications
- Experimental results and demonstrations
- Optimized algorithms and applications
- Quantum information processing and computing
- Quantum simulation and computation
- Learning with hybrid quantum-classical methods
- Optimization in Internet of Things
- Cyber-physical networked systems
- Emerging networked applications
- Further related topics

The aim of this workshop is to connect people from academia and industry to discuss about theory, technology and applications and exchange ideas to move efficiently forward in the engineering and development in the exciting area of quantum technology and optimization problems in networked systems.

Submission info for manuscripts:

Original and unpublished regular papers are solicited from the above-mentioned areas. Regular papers have a length of up to 12 pages. All manuscripts will be peer reviewed and published in the workshop proceedings and after presentation in the series “Lecture Notes in Computer Science” (LNCS) of Springer-Verlag. Templates for the manuscripts can be downloaded from:

The formatted manuscript should be electronically submitted as pdf via EDAS:
