[Mycolleagues] Cfp: QTOP 2019 - Quantum Technology and Optimization Problems, Munich 2019

Dear colleagues,

plaese, could you distribute the following call for papers on the mycolleagues list?

I thank you in advance and best regards,


                   Call for Papers (CfP)


               First International Workshop on

   Quantum Technology and Optimization Problems (QTOP'19)

             18th March, 2019, Munich, Germany


Over the last decade, a wide variety of experimental quantum computing hardware has been invented and used for fundamental demonstrations in laboratories. First results confirm feasibility of such hardware in real-world applications. Recently one can observe upcoming research in areas like traffic flow optimization, mobile sensor placement, machine learning, and many more. The development of quantum computing hardware, be it in the quantum gate model or adiabatic quantum computation (quantum annealing), made huge progress in the last years. This started to transfer knowhow from quantum technology based research to algorithms and applications. This development is offering numerous opportunities to contribute within research, theory, applied technologies and engineering.

QTOP 2019 will be held in conjunction with NetSys2019 ( in Munich, Germany on March 18th, 2019.

The following topics are crucial to the development of future improvements in networked systems based on quantum technology and optimization problems:

- Quantum algorithms and applications
- Experimental results and demonstrations
- Optimized algorithms and applications
- Quantum information processing and computing
- Quantum simulation and computation
- Learning with hybrid quantum-classical methods
- Optimization in Internet of Things
- Cyber-physical networked systems
- Emerging networked applications
- Further related topics

The aim of this workshop is to connect people from academia and industry to discuss about theory, technology and applications and exchange ideas to move efficiently forward in the engineering and development in the exciting area of quantum technology and optimization problems in networked systems.
