Quantum computing is emerging as a remarkable technology that promises to achieve major scientific breakthroughs. This includes solving complex problems whose solutions lie well beyond contemporary and even future supercomputers based on conventional technologies. Interacting with these quantum computers, including noisy-intermediate scale quantum devices, for basic and applied research will require a unique collection of software tools and techniques.
This workshop will explore the software needed to make quantum computing practical and accessible. The workshop will focus on the tools and software for quantum computing with emphasis on realized implementations. Topics of interest for this workshop include but are not limited to: languages, programming, compilers, profilers, simulators, debugging, control and characterization, and other quantum computing software. Topics not relevant include domain-specific applications of quantum computing, physical design of quantum computing devices, benchmarking or co-design of quantum computing systems and quantum algorithms unless there is a connection to the topics above.
