“IEEE is now at the center of a global conversation to understand the power and promise of quantum computing.”   — Travis Humble, Oak Ridge National Labs

Also known as IEEE Quantum Week, QCE21 is unique by integrating dimensions from academic and business conferences and will reveal cutting edge research and developments featuring quantum research, practice, applications, education, and training.

 QCE21’s Keynote Speakers include the following quantum groundbreakers and leaders:

  • Alan Baratz — D-Wave Systems, President & CEO
  • James S. Clarke — Intel Labs, Director of Quantum Hardware
  • David J. Dean — Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Director Quantum Science Center
  • Jay Gambetta — IBM Quantum, IBM Fellow & VP Quantum Computing
  • Sonika Johri — IonQ, Senior Quantum Applications Research Scientist
  • Anthony Megrant — Google Quantum AI, Lead Research Scientist
  • Prineha Narang — Harvard University & Aliro Quantum, Professor & CTO
  • Brian Neyenhuis — Honeywell Quantum Solutions, Commercial Operations Leader
  • Urbasi Sinha — Raman Research Institute, Bangalore, Professor
  • Krista Svore — Microsoft, General Manager Quantum Systems

Through participation from the international quantum community, QCE21 has developed an extensive conference program with world-class keynote speakers, technical paper presentations, innovative posters, exciting exhibits, technical briefings, workforce-building tutorials, community-building workshops, stimulating panels, and Birds-of-Feather sessions.

Papers accepted by QCE21 will be submitted to the IEEE Xplore Digital Library, and the best papers will be invited to the journals IEEE Transactions on Quantum Engineering (TQE) and ACM Transactions on Quantum Computing (TQC).

QCE21 is co-sponsored by IEEE Computer Society, IEEE Communications Society, IEEE Council of Superconductivity, IEEE Future Directions Committee, IEEE Photonics Society, IEEE Technology and Engineering Management Society, IEEE Electronics Packaging Society, IEEE Signal Processing Society (SP), and IEEE Electron Device Society (EDS).

The inaugural 2020 IEEE Quantum Week built a solid foundation and was highly successful — over 800 people from 45 countries and 225 companies attended the premier event that delivered 270+ hours of programming on quantum computing and engineering.

The second annual 2021 Quantum Week will virtually connect a wide range of leading quantum professionals, researchers, educators, entrepreneurs, champions, and enthusiasts to exchange and share their experiences, challenges, research results, innovations, applications, and enthusiasm, on all aspects of quantum computing, engineering and technologies.  The IEEE Quantum Week schedule will take place during Mountain Daylight Time (MDT).
