Second International Workshop on Quantum Computing Software held in conjunction with SC21: The International Conference For High Performance Computing, Networking, Storage and Analysis

Yuri Alexeev (Argonne National Laboratory)

The International Workshop on Quantum Computing Software is an official workshop of SC21 scheduled Monday, 15 November, 2021 from 9am – 5:30 pm CST.  This is the second year the workshop is offered through Supercomputing (SC).

Quantum computing is emerging as a remarkable technology that promises to achieve major scientific breakthroughs. This includes solving complex problems whose solution lies well beyond contemporary and even future supercomputers based on conventional technologies. Interacting with these quantum computers, including noisy-intermediate scale quantum devices, for both basic and applied research will require a unique collection of software tools and techniques.

The purpose of this workshop is to explore the innovative software needed to make quantum computing practical and accessible. The workshop will focus heavily on the tools and software for quantum computing with particular emphasis on realized implementations.

Topics of interest for this workshop include but are not limited to:

  • Languages
  • Programming
  • Compilers/Profilers
  • Simulators
  • Tools/Workflow
  • Debugging/Verification/Benchmarking software
  • Quantum control software
  • Other quantum computing software

Topics that are not relevant to the workshop include domain-specific applications of quantum computing, design of quantum computing devices, benchmarking of quantum computers and quantum algorithms.

In cooperation with TCHPC.
