ICFP 2022
Sun 11 - Fri 16 September 2022 Ljubljana, Slovenia

The Third International Workshop on Programming Languages for Quantum Computing (PLanQC 2022) 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, both those that exist today and those likely to exist in the near to far future.

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 optimization
  • 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.

Call for Submissions

We invite members of the programming languages and quantum computing communities to submit talk proposals 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.

Submissions to PLanQC should take the form of 2-5 page abstracts (single-column, 11pt acmsmall style, not including references), with links to larger preprints when appropriate. Work in progress is welcome. We hope to make PLanQC maximally accessible to the programming languages community. Thus, abstracts should cover cutting-edge ideas and results, but not be opaque to new, potential entrants to quantum computing coming from programing languages. Abstracts will be reviewed for quality and relevance to the workshop, and accepted authors will be invited to give talks or poster presentations. We will not be publishing formal proceedings, but the extended abstracts, along with links (where available) to full papers will be posted to the website of the workshop.

Invited Speakers:

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

Call for Posters

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@dal.ca
