The workshop is supposed to bridge gaps between disciplines, and bring researchers working on traditional software engineering in contact with persons from non-software centric fields: We believe that many unsolved and interesting issues can be found at boundaries and intersections between fields, and that there are insufficient venues to publish such cross-disciplinary results. We also believe that a big aspect of future quantum computing will concern software, and software engineering should consequently act as a platform to connect. Many important questions regarding quantum software concern fundamental scientific issues, but must at the same time show their merits on real machines.
Call For Paper
Topics of the workshop include:
Generate inputs from software side to hardware and infrastructure, and devise migration paths to new quantum-classical hybrid architectures.
Show ways to measure performance of quantum computers (quality, speed, cost, latency, scalability, and new KPIs).
Address gate-based systems, annealers, and experimental architectures (as long as they are reasonably programmable via appropriate software interfaces).
Discuss use of simulators to predict capabilities and effective performance of solutions, and for testing and integration.
Focus on interfaces, deployment, experimental evaluation, and hybrid quantum-classical architectures. We do deliberately not focus on issues that might materialise in decades.
