Quantum Computing: Current Status and Prospects - QCCSP

Special Session Organizer and Chair: Prof. Ilias K. Savvas, Dept. of Digital Systems, Univ. of Thessaly, GR,

Quantum computers take advantage of phenomena and properties of quantum mechanics such as superposition and quantum entanglement to perform calculations. When Quantum Computing Devices with a large number of qubits become reliable, our world will be shaken. From cryptography to chemistry, from pharmacology to machine learning and almost all scientific fields will flourish. Vaccines and drugs that took years to be discovered, with Quantum Computers will take months or days! Cryptography and current cryptographic algorithms will have no power! Codes would break in seconds when it would take centuries with classic computers. In addition, industries like Chemical, Healthcare and Drug Development, Security, and so on, will take advantage of the new Computing Era. Therefore, new meta-quantum algorithms will have to be devised as we move into the era of Quantum Computing. However, the problem of the reliability of such computers still remains, especially when the number of qubits and the size of the circuit increases.

Today, colossal IT companies such as IBM, Google, Microsoft, Intel, Amazon (mentioning only a few of them), countries like U.S.A., E.U., China, Russia, but also large and well-respected Universities and Research Centers are investing huge sums of money in research to create reliable Quantum Computers.

In this special track, research works as well as practical applications are of interest. Authors from Universities, Research Centers, and independent researchers are welcome to contribute.

We seek original and high-quality submissions on, but not limited to, one or more of the following topics:

• Quantum Computing Research and Applications on Chemistry and Material Science, Blockchain and Cybersecurity, Logistics, Healthcare, Agriculture, Finance, and so on
• Quantum Machine Learning (algorithms, applications, and techniques)
• Quantum Processing Units (QPUs) and error correction
• Meta-quantum cryptographic algorithms
• Quantum Drug Development
• Parallel Computations on Quantum Computing Devices
• Algorithms and Quantum computing in the NISQ (Noisy Intermediate-Scale Quantum) era
• Post-Quantum Cryptography
• Quantum Annealing and Adiabatic Quantum Computing
• Quantum Telecommunications, Networking and Internet
• Future trends of Quantum Computing
