WIHPQC 2021 : The First International Workshop on Integrating 
High-Performance and Quantum Computing


Quantum computers, QCs, come with the promise of a substantial increase 
in computational capabilities compared to binary computer architectures 
for a range of suitable problems. They therefore have the ability to 
make significant contributions to the field of High-Performance Computing, 
HPC. On the other hand, though, quantum computing alone cannot achieve 
this goal, as it requires current and future HPC systems to function. As 
a consequence, we need a close integration between the quantum computing 
and the current HPC ecosystems, to form an integrated HPC/QC approach 
capable of bringing the combined computational abilities to a broad user 

In this workshop, we bring together practitioners, theoreticians and 
users from both HPC, QC and the application disciplines, to understand 
the needs and requirements from both sides for such an integration, to 
report on and discuss innovative approaches and to build a long-term 
bridge between the involved communities.

Scope of the workshop

We invite high-quality abstract submissions on all topics related to 
integrating QC into the existing binary computing eco-system, with a 
particular focus on combining HPC and QC. We explicitly encourage 
submissions at all levels of the system stack, ranging from hardware 
integration to programming models and environments, from system software 
to theoretical foundations.

The list of interests includes, but is not limited to, the following topics:
• Housing of QC systems in data center facilities
• Efficient cloud access to QC resources
• Hardware/software design trade-offs in integrated system
• Joint and hybrid programming models, tools and environments
• Compiler optimizations and techniques
• Operating system, middleware, and run-time system support
• Quantum control processors and firmware

Format and submissions

Abstracts will be reviewed by an international program committee. 
Reviews are blind, but not double-blind. The names of the authors will 
be seen by the program committee.

To be considered, abstracts must be submitted as PDF files via EasyChair at
and must be at most 2 pages long, references not included.

Accepted abstracts will be invited for presentation at the workshop 
during IEEE Quantum Week. Registration to IEEE Quantum Week for at least 
one author is mandatory. Abstracts will be published on the workshop 
webpage. Authors will retain copyright of their work, allowing for 
future publications.
