IEEE International Conference on Quantum Computing and Engineering (QCE20)

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.

QCE20 Format and Schedule

QCE20 will be held in a digital-only or virtual-only format during the week of Oct 12-16, 2020. QCE20 was originally scheduled to be held in Broomfield, Colorado which is in the Mountain Time Zone (MT) or UTC-6. The QCE20 daily program will be broadcast from 8:30 to 19:45 Mountain Time. Recorded sessions will be available for registered QCE20 attendees a few hours after the live sessions until November 30, 2020. Every day of this week, QCE20 hosts 9-10 parallel tracks of quantum computing and engineering programming including Workshops, Tutorials, Technical Paper Tracks intermixed with Keynotes, Panels, Exhibits, Posters, Birds of a Feather, and Networking sessions featuring a total of over 270 hours of programming.

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 keynotes, technical paper presentations, workforce-building tutorials, community-building workshops, posters, exhibits featuring the latest technologies and accomplishments from the world’s leading vendors, research organizations, and universities as well as virtual networking rooms. 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 the quantum workforce, nurturing quantum start-ups.

Talk 1 on 13th October: 10 am Mountain time

Speaker: James Robinson

Talk title:  Quantum computing and qubit scale-up applications with Proteox dilution refreigertor

Abstract: Quantum applications are a key driving factor for cryogenic innovation, placing increasing demands on experimental volume and wiring capacity. The new Proteox dilution refrigerator from Oxford Instruments NanoScience addresses these market demands through increased line-of sight-access, wider plate spacings and a 50% increase in mixing chamber plate area. This presentation provides an overview of how the Quantum researchers can unlock new applications, maximise system value and gain greater control over experimental set-up that can support multiple users and a variety of experiments from a single experimental system using the Proteox system.

Talk 2 on 14th October: 10 am Mountain time

Speaker: Ravi Sundaram

Talk title:  Quantum technologies device fabrication challenges and solutions

Abstract: The next leap in technology readiness in quantum device performance relies on advancement in materials processing. This talk provides an overview of device fabrication and characterisation challenges and solutions for applications in Quantum Technology like Quantum computing, communications and sensing. We will cover aspects of state of the art processing solutions for three different approaches to Quantum devices: Superconducting Qubits and quantum circuits, Diamond based NV centers and Integrated photonic approaches to quantum technologies.
