WELCOME TO WIHPQC 2022

The Second International Workshop on Integrating High-Performance and Quantum Computing
At IEEE Quantum Week, September 21, 2022
Broomfield, Colorado, USA

Quantum computers, QCs, come with the promise of a substantial increase in computational capabilities compared to binary computer architectures for a range of suitable problems. They therefore have the ability to make significant contributions to the field of High-Performance Computing, HPC. On the other hand, though, quantum computing alone cannot achieve this goal, as it requires current and future HPC systems to function. As a consequence, we need a close integration between the quantum computing and the current HPC ecosystems, to form an integrated HPC/QC approach capable of bringing the combined computational abilities to a broad user base.

In this workshop, we bring together practitioners, theoreticians and users from HPC, QC and the application disciplines, to understand the needs and requirements from both sides for such an integration, to report on and discuss innovative approaches and to build a long-term bridge between the involved communities.

CALL FOR PAPERS

We invite high-quality short paper submissions on all topics related to integrating QC into the existing binary computing eco-system, with a particular focus on combining HPC and QC. We explicitly encourage submissions at all levels of the system stack, ranging from hardware integration to programming models and environments, from system software to theoretical foundations, as well as covering hybrid applications.

Papers will be reviewed by an international program committee. Reviews are blind, but not double-blind. The names of the authors will be seen by the program commit-tee.

To be considered, papers must be submitted as PDF files via EasyChair at:
https://easychair.org/conferences/submission_track?track=290060&a=28437751
and must be at most 4 pages long, references included. Papers must conform at the time of submission to the IEEE Formatting Instructions for conference proceedings.

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

Topics

The list of interests includes, but is not limited to, the following topics:

  • Joint and hybrid programming models, tools and environments
  • Hybrid applications using both HPC and QC
  • Operating system, middleware, and run-time system support
  • Compiler optimizations and techniques
  • Hardware/software design trade-offs in integrated system
  • Quantum control processors and firmware
  • Housing of QC systems in data center facilities
  • Efficient cloud access to QC resources
  • Simulation and emulation of HPC/QC systems

Important Dates

Submission deadline: July 19th, 2022 (AoE)
