It is a one-day workshop to be held at the PPAM 2022, focusing on two
relevant quantum technology areas: quantum computation and communication.
The main goal of this workshop is to bring together scientists and
practitioners experimenting with both software and hardware quantum
facilities, quantum processors, and quantum communication testbeds in
the noisy intermediate-scale quantum (NISQ) and upcoming quantum
operational advantage era. This workshop is also an opportunity to
catch up on how to take advantage of quantum computing and
communication technologies in both theory and practice.

Possible topics include, but are not limited to:
  * Gate-based quantum computing
  * Quantum annealing and optical quantum computing
  * Quantum near-future applications and calculations
  * Quantum machine learning and quantum optimization approaches
  * Domain and industry driven quantum technology use cases
  * Quantum software and application development tools
  * Hybrid HPC+QC or HPQC applications and runtimes
  * Performance analysis of quantum simulations on NISQ devices
    and simulators
  * Strategies for error mitigation and fault-tolerant quantum
  * Quantum communication experiences, services and applications
  * Designing and architecting quantum key distribution

All rules of paper submission of the PPAM conference apply,
in particular:
  * Papers will be refereed and accepted on the basis of their
    scientific merit and relevance to the Workshop topics.
  * Papers presented at the Workshop will be included into the
    conference proceedings and published after the conference
    by Springer in the LNCS series.
  * Before the Workshop, abstracts of accepted papers will be
    posted on this site.
  * Authors should submit papers (PDF files) using the online
    submission tool.
  * Papers are not to exceed 12 pages (LNCS style)
  * Final camera-ready versions of accepted papers will be required
    by November 2, 2022.

Alternatively, abstracts delivering original works are invited to
be presented at the Workshop. They should be prepared according to
the Springer LNCS format on 2 pages. Accepted abstracts will be
posted on the workshop site before the conference.

Paper due:                   May 6, 2022
Notification of acceptance:  June 17, 2022
Conference:                  September 11-14, 2022
Camera-Ready Papers:         November 2, 2022
