IEEE International Conference on Quantum Computing & Engineering (QCE20) – 12-16 Oct 2020

IEEE Quantum Week is a multidisciplinary quantum computing venue where attendees have the unique opportunity to discuss challenges and opportunities with quantum researchers, scientists, engineers, entrepreneurs, developers, students, practitioners, educators, programmers, and newcomers.

IEEE International Conference on Quantum Computing and Engineering (QCE20) invites contributions and participation from the international quantum community to form a world-class program. The multi-faceted event will include a series of world-class eynotes, technical paper presentations, technical briefings, informative tutorials throughout the weekcommunity-building workshops through out the week, posters, networking receptions, and exhibits featuring the latest technologies and accomplishments from the world’s leading vendors, research organizations, and universities. IEEE Quantum Week aims to showcase quantum research, practice, applications, standards, education, and training. The extensive topics include quantum programming systems, software engineering methods & tools, algorithms, NISQ, benchmarks & metrology, performance metrics, hardware engineering, architectures, & topologies, hardware-software co-design, software stack & infrastructure, hybrid computing (integrating quantum & classical computing); communications, sensing, cryptography, QKD; simulating chemical, physical and biological systems; quantum photonics & optics; optimization, machine learning, ramping up quantum workforce, nurturing quantum start-ups.

Keynote Speakers

The Quantum Week 2020 program will feature nine outstanding proven keynote speakers addressing topics of the IEEE International Conference on Quantum Computing and Engineering. The plenary keynotes are intended to fire up the conference attendees at the beginning of each conference day and provide food for thought to stimulate discussion for the networking receptions in the exhibits hall at the end day. The keynote speakers will promote the virtues and state of the art of the different themes of quantum computing and engineering.

Tutorials Program

The shortage of skilled labor is one of the quantum computing sector’s greatest challenges. The week-long tutorials program, with half- and full-day 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.

Preliminary Tutorials Program

Workshops Program

IEEE Quantum Week Workshops provide forums for small-group discussions on topics in quantum research, practice, education, and applications. Workshops provide opportunities for researchers 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.

Preliminary Workshops Program


Exhibitors and Sponsor Program will be continuously updated.

IEEE Quantum Week aims to provide attendees the unique opportunity to see the latest quantum technologies that will shape our exciting quantum future. Exhibits will feature the latest quantum technologies and accomplishments from the world’s leading companies, start-ups, national labs, research institutes, and universities. Exhibits are a great opportunity to showcase emerging products, tools, services, and posters. The Quantum Week exhibits will feature daily receptions to facilitate networking with participants of the rapidly growing quantum computing community.


Accepted Posters will be posted by July 20, 2020.

The IEEE Quantum Week Posters program presents excellent opportunities for practitioners, researchers, graduate students, entrepreneurs, and start-ups to showcase their work and engage with the international quantum computing R&D community during the IEEE Quantum Week Exhibits.
