EQS3-II 2023

The second EQS3 expands on the topics (see below) of the first meeting in April 2023 in Burghausen, Germany. This time, we will focus particularly on interfaces (especially on the backend) and on benchmarks. A third topic, user access models, will be addressed if time allows.

The event will run July 12 (8:30am - 6:00pm) and July 13 (8:30am - 12:00pm)

Invited participants have already received logistical information. Please find information on hotel and transportation options on this PDF.

NEW Registration for European Quantum Computing Hardware Companies

Deadline: 17:00 CEST, Tuesday, July 4, 2023

On July 12 and 13, we invite European quantum computing companies who develop quantum computers using qubit technologies based on superconductors, ion traps, photons and neutral atoms. Participating companies should comply with the eligibility conditions of call EUROHPC-2022-CEI-QC-01[1] in the Work Programme of the EuroHPC Joint Undertaking.
One seat is available for a technical representative from each company able to expertly converse on the on-premise use of their technology for on-premise hybrid quantum-HPC. For this meeting, we will focus on: 

  • Interfaces (especially backend)
  • Benchmarks

An optional third topic of user access models will be discussed, contingent on time availability.
To facilitate discussion, only companies able to have a person onsite will be eligible for participation. Space is limited and registration is not guaranteed participation. Acceptance is based on time of application and “first come” principle until 17:00 CEST Tuesday, July 4. 
To register, please send an email to quantum-projects@lrz.de with the subject: EQS3 Registration Request. Please include the name of your company, location, name of technical expert to attend and confirmation of attendance on Wednesday, July 12 (required) and Thursday, July 13 (requested). An email confirmation of your request will be sent to you within working hours.
Notification will be by email on July 5th by 12:00pm. A link for registration logistics will be sent at that time.

We will gather the expert community on quantum computing with a technical focus on integrating this new technology into our existing HPC and data center system software environments and to have a lively technical discussion on how to accomplish this, to learn from each other’s technical ideas and approaches, and to find practical and near-term solutions that work for across sites and their individual requirements. We hope this will be the starting point for a long-term conversation towards open environments and/or standards for quantum computing, enabling seamless integration with existing system software infrastructures and programming environments and supporting different access frameworks and user services.

For any questions, please contact Laura Schulz at schulz@lrz.de.

Topics for discussion include:

  • Software and program development environments
  • Low-level system software, including firmware interfaces
  • Extension of current programming models and development of new approaches
  • Role of existing established models like OpenMP and MPI for quantum computing
  • Quantum runtime systems
  • Tooling for end users that provide needed abstractions
  • Global and local schedulers and scheduling policies
  • Environmental and execution monitoring
