Quantum Computing

Quantum computing promises to harness the power of quantum mechanics to solve problems unfathomable for classical computers to resolve. Quantum computing, once a theoretical dream, is now experiencing an unprecedented surge of progress. Driven by intense research efforts, substantial investments, and collaboration across academia and industry, quantum computing technology is rapidly approaching reality with a promise to revolutionize fields ranging from materials science and drug discovery to finance and artificial intelligence. The SVC symposium aims to explore the current state and prospects of this transformative technology.

The symposium invites researchers, academics, and industry leaders to explore the cutting edge of quantum computing and share their insights on its remarkable emergence. We seek submissions on a range of topics, including:

Quantum Hardware and Software:

  • Progress and challenges in superconducting qubits, trapped ion, topological, and other platforms.
  • Novel device architectures and fabrication techniques.
  • Algorithmic breakthroughs development frameworks and their practical applications.
  • Error correction and fault-tolerance techniques.
  • Benchmarking and performance analysis.

Scalability Challenges:

  • Bridging the gap between quantum and classical systems.
  • Architectures for large-scale quantum computing.


  • Emerging applications in materials science, drug discover, and encryption.
  • Quantum-enhanced machine learning and artificial intelligence.
  • Financial modeling and risk analysis.


  • The ethical implications and impact of quantum computing on society.
  • Educational initiatives and talent development for the quantum workforce.
  • Commercialization and industry trends in quantum technology.
