4th International Workshop on Quantum Software Engineering and Technology

Co-located with IEEE International Conference on Quantum Computing and Engineering (IEEE Quantum Week).

September 15-20, 2024, Montréal, Québec, Canada


As quantum computing evolves, Quantum Software Engineering (QSE) becomes a relevant topic for both researchers and practitioners. IEEE defines Software Engineering as the application of a systematic, disciplined, quantifiable approach to the development, operation, and maintenance of software, as well as to the study of these approaches. Thus, the Quantum Software Engineering community is gaining presence in all the relevant quantum computing research forums as a way to produce quantum software in a systematic and controlled way with adequate quality levels. This will ensure that quantum software progress along with the last advances in quantum computing.
This event will serve as discussion forum on how to produce quantum software considering lessons learned from the classical software engineering field as well as novel approaches. This implies to apply or adapt the existing software engineering processes, methods, techniques, and principles for the development of quantum software, or even to create new methods and techniques that will help create quantum software with the appropriate quality attributes.

4th Quantum Software Engineering and Technology Workshop is co-located with IEEE International Conference on Quantum Computing and Engineering | IEEE Quantum Week
