Special Session on Quantum Computing

at the 2010 IEEE Congress on Evolutionary Computation,
Part of the 2010 IEEE World Congress on Computational Intelligence

Although quantum computing is still in its nascent days, there are experiments that successfully perform quantum computation on a small number of qubits. Recently, researchers at the NIST demonstrated continuous quantum operations using a trapped-ion processor. Other researchers have discovered a way to make quantum devices using technology common in our current chip-making industry. Historically, classical computer concepts and underlying technologies have been invented by mathematicians and physicists rather than engineers. It was engineers, however, who took basic concepts and ideas and created the practical powerful and inexpensive computers of today. We believe that the same will happen in case of quantum computing.

Some typical research areas that will be discussed in this special session include (but are not limited to) the following:

Important Dates

Paper Submission:February 7, 2010 (already extended deadline)
Acceptance Notification:March 15, 2010
Final Manuscript Due:May 2, 2010

Paper Submission

Manuscripts should be prepared according to the standard format and page limit of regular papers specified in WCCI/CEC 2010. For paper preparation instructions, please see http://www.wcci2010.org/submission.

To submit, visit http://ieee-cis.org/conferences/cec2010/upload.php and in the "Main research topic" select "SS69: Quantum Computing".

CEC is one of the flagship conferences for the IEEE Computational Intelligence Society. All special session papers will be treated in the same way as regular papers. The confernce proceedings of CEC have been continuously included in the EI Compendex Database and IEEE Xplore.
