CFP
Quantum Computing Thematic Track
in conjunction with the International Conference on Computational Science

July 2 - 4, 2024, Malaga, Spain


Introduction

Quantum computing is a widely developing paradigm that exploits the fundamental principles of quantum mechanics to solve problems in various fields of science that are beyond the possibilities of classical computing infrastructures. Despite the increasing activity in both theoretical research and hardware implementations, reaching the state of useful quantum supremacy is still an open question. This workshop aims to provide a forum for computational scientists, software developers, computer scientists, physicists and quantum hardware providers to understand and discuss research on current problems in quantum informatics. The special focus of this year workshop is application of quantum algorithms to the computational science problems.

Topics

Specific topics include (but are not limited to):

  • Application of quantum computing to current problems in computational science;
  • New quantum computing algorithms;
  • New hybrid quantum-classical solutions;
  • Quantum algorithms in machine learning and big data in computational science;
  • Integration of quantum computation with supercomputing infrastructure;
  • Quantum computing hardware;
  • Quantum error correction;
  • Advanced methods for quantum software engineering;
  • Novel numerical methods supporting quantum information theory;
  • Environments and frameworks for quantum computing;
  • Quantum simulators;
  • Cloud-based support for quantum computing;
  • Dedicated services required for quantum computing;
  • Novel approaches to quantum games;
  • Quantum networks / quantum Internet;
  • Quantum programming languages;
  • Creative tools for quantum computation education: video games, interactive art;
  • Challenging applications in industry and academia.

Papers

We cordially invite you to submit a paper presenting the results of original research in the area of quantum computing. Papers of 12-15 pages, written in English and formatted according to the Springer LNCS templates, should be submitted electronically via EasyChair. Choose Quantum Computing thematic track. You also have the option of submitting a short paper of 6-8 pages. Both Full and Short Papers use the same templates and are published in LNCS. Templates are available here. The LaTeX2e Proceedings Templates are also available in the scientific authoring platform Overleaf. Please also make sure to follow Springers authors guidelines. All papers will be peer reviewed.
After the conference, the best papers will be invited for a special issue of the Journal of Computational Science (Impact Factor: 3.3).

Important Dates

Full paper submission (final extension!): March 1, 2024
Notification of acceptance: April 1, 2024
Camera-ready papers: April 19, 2024
