Text Box: Historically, classical computer concepts and underlying technologies have been invented by mathematicians and physicists rather than engineers. It were 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 computers. A new area of engineering - quantum computer engineering - will be created to solve many engineering aspects of future quantum circuits and computers. At the present time there are several research groups and conferences in the field of quantum computing, quantum circuits and quantum information that are addressed to physicists, mathematicians and theoretical computer scientists. Very recently, the first ever commercial quantum computer Orion (adiabatic quantum computing) has been demonstrated by D-Wave company from Vancouver, British Columbia and there are many signs that commercialization of quantum computing and information ideas will take place sooner rather than later.
There is a growing group of researchers with engineering background who do active research in the area of what will become quantum computer engineering and there are universities who teach already “quantum engineers”. The research areas that will be discussed in this special session include:
Design principles of new quantum computers and methodologies, especially adiabatic quantum computers, quantum walks and one –way quantum computers.
Synthesis and automated synthesis of quantum circuits - a quantum equivalent of traditional CAD of logic synthesis. The research includes using Genetic Algorithm, Genetic Programming and other evolutionary and biology mimicking methods to synthesize quantum circuits and optimize them.
Programming languages and environments for quantum synthesis and algorithms.
Quantum Computational Intelligence - all learning and problem-solving models known from Computational Intelligence such as Neural Nets, Bayes nets, Logic Networks, Fuzzy Logic, state machines, etc can be extended to those based on quantum circuits and automata.
Quantum game theory, applications of quantum games.
There is a special interest in Grover algorithm and its applications to solve NP-hard problems. New algorithms for search implemented on various types of quantum computers
Design, testing and verification of practical quantum circuits, including quantum neural nets using various realization technologies. 
Using GA, GP and other evolutionary paradigms in all areas of quantum circuits, quantum information and quantum computing.
Paper Submission
Manuscripts should be prepared according to the standard format of regular papers specified in CEC2007 and be restricted to a maximum of 8 pages. Paper submission is strictly only PDF format and online through the regular CEC2007 submission website. Special session papers will be treated in the same way as regular papers and included in the conference proceedings.
