PLanQC 2022: Programming Languages for Quantum Computing

Call for poster abstracts (deadline: August 15 2022 aoe)

We invite members of the programming languages and quantum computing communities to submit poster abstracts for the 3rd International Workshop on Programming Languages for Quantum Computing (PLanQC 2022), co-located this September with ICFP in Ljubljana, Slovenia.

PLanQC aims to bring together researchers from the fields of programming languages and quantum information, exposing the programming languages community to the unique challenges of programming quantum computers. It will promote the development of tools to assist in the process of programming quantum computers, as they exist today and as they are likely to exist in the near to distant future.

Poster abstracts should contain no more than a few paragraphs and should fit on a single page. Work in progress is welcome. Abstracts will be reviewed for quality and relevance to the workshop.

Poster abstracts can be submitted by email to: neil.jr.ross at dal.ca

Invited speakers:

  • Dominique Unruh, University of Tartu
  • Charles Yuan, MIT

Workshop topics include (but are not limited to):

  • High-level quantum programming languages
  • Verification tools for quantum programs
  • Novel quantum programming abstractions
  • Quantum circuit and program optimizations
  • Hardware-aware circuit compilation and routing
  • Error handling, mitigation, and correction
  • Instruction sets for quantum hardware
  • Other techniques from traditional programming languages (e.g., types, compilation/optimization, foreign function interfaces) applied to the domain of quantum computation.
