IEEE Services 2021 – IEEE International Symposium on on Quantum Software and Services (QSAS) (via Qpute.com)

Call for Papers

Symposium Dates: TBA

Invited speakers and panelists of the Symposium can submit papers via EasyChair per the instructions provided below. Registration fee for the invited speakers/panelists is waived. A panelist can publish a position statement with no more than 3 pages without a fee. Registration fee for a paper with 4 or more pages can be waived by General Chair upon request.

Quantum computing is one of the latest fundamental advances in computation and nowadays we begin to see how companies start to offer this computational model, using various technologies. Quantum computers can solve problems that are classically intractable or solve problems with higher precision, respectively. Software that makes use of quantum computers is referred to as quantum software. To gain experience with quantum software it is important to allow the users to access this technology, to continue research, and perform experiments with this technology that is still adapted day by day. With this in mind, we observe that over the last years cloud-based access to quantum computers as well as associated services appeared.

Research institutions, companies, and startups are building this new ecosystem of services on top this new computation paradigm. They exploit the maturity of the cloud to facilitate access to and usage of this paradigm.

There are a lot of challenges about how to create and use this next generation of software and services that take advantage of quantum computers, especially how we are going to combine them with classical infrastructures and services, or how we are going to integrate quantum software in our business process and production pipelines.

Questions like these are the motivation for this inaugural Quantum Software and Services (QSAS) event of IEEE Computer Society. It will allow researchers and practitioners from industry and academia to discuss about what should be the next steps in this new field.

The inaugural IEEE QSAS Symposium provides a forum for leading researchers, practitioners, and visionaries to share their R&D findings, experiences, or visions about quantum software and services. It will be held as a cross-conference event at IEEE SERVICES 2021, featuring distinguished speeches, panels, invited talks, paper presentations, a Hackathon, and a tutorial. Please stay tuned for program updates.

We extend an invitation to all to participate and make it a success.

Technical research papers are welcome to be submitted to the special track on “Quantum Software and Services (QSAS)” of IEEE ICWS 2021, see CFP web page of IEEE ICWS 2021 for submission details. A Special Paper Award is provided for the special track as well. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Cloud quantum service model
  • Orchestration of hybrid quantum applications
  • Web and cloud access to quantum computers
  • Development tools for quantum software
  • Programming model for quantum software


Please download the paper template in WORD, LaTeX or Overleaf.
Language: English
Paper size and format: US Letter; Two-column format in the IEEE style
Page limit: * Every full paper submission can include up to 10 pages for the main contents (including all text, footnotes, figures, tables and appendices) with additional pages for appropriate references.
