4th International Workshop on

Quantum Compilation

23-24 September 2020

COVID-19 IS NOT FUN.

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, and the uncertainty about travel and public gatherings, we have made the difficult decision to make IWQC 2020 a virtual event.

Full details about the arrangements will appear here nearer the time.

About the workshop

The workshop aims to bring together researchers from quantum computing, electronic design automation, and compiler construction. Open questions that we anticipate this group to tackle include new methods for circuit synthesis and optimization, optimizations and rewriting, techniques for verifying the correctness of quantum programs, and new techniques for compiling efficient circuits and protocols regarding fault-tolerant and architecture constraints.

The scope of the workshop includes, but is not limited to, current hot topics in quantum circuit design such as

  • space-optimizing compilers for reversible circuits
  • design-space exploration for automatic code generation from classical HDL specification
  • quantum programming languages
  • reversible logic synthesis
  • technology-aware mapping
  • error correction
  • optimized libraries (e.g., for arithmetic and Hamiltonian simulation)
  • benchmarking of circuits for small and medium scale quantum computers
  • quantum and reversible circuit peep-holing and (re)synthesis
  • software and tools for all above mentioned topics
  • quantum outreach: coding contests, tutorials, education

Best Student Paper Prize!

The PC will award a GBP 500 prize for the best accepted paper whose authors are all students at the time of submission. The prize will be shared equally between the authors.

Invited Speakers

Eleanor Rieffel, Quantum Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (QuAIL) NASA Ames Research Center

Margaret Martonosi, Quantum computer architecture and programming languages research group (QArch), Princeton University

Earl T. Campbell, University of Sheffield and AWS Center for Quantum Computing.

23 and 24 September 2020 Workshop

Instructions for authors

The main purpose of the workshop is to exchange recent ideas and reserch in the area of quantum compilation. The workshop has no formal proceedings. Authors are invited to submit an abstract or a paper, with no restrictions on the format. Submission of tool and case-study papers are highly encouraged. In case of a positive evaluation, submissions are accepted either as oral or poster presentation to be part of the workshop program. All abstracts and papers are distributed only among the participants. Please submit your papers through EasyChair: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=iwqc20

Registration

Registration will be handled through via Quantum Week of Fun.

Sponsorship
