COLLEGE PARK, Md.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–IonQ (NYSE: IONQ), an industry leader in quantum computing, today announced its participation in the IEEE International Conference on Quantum Computing and Engineering (QCE22). Taking place September 18-23, 2022 in Broomfield, Colorado, the week-long event will bring together some of the world’s leading quantum researchers, scientists, entrepreneurs and academics to discuss and explore the latest advances in the quantum field.
Chris Monroe, co-founder and principal scientist at IonQ, will be the keynote speaker at the event on September 19, where he will summarize the unique advantages of trapped-ion quantum computers in both academic and industrial settings, and their use in scientific and commercial applications becomes. Co-founder and Chief Technology Officer Jungsang Kim will also participate in a workshop program on September 20 focused on designing control systems for confined-ion quantum computers.
Other members of the IonQ team will participate in a series of workshops and panel discussions throughout the week, covering topics such as working with the Microsoft Azure Quantum platform, the need for low-level programming to achieve quantum advantages, and the key challenges in scaling up to practical quantum computing. Panelists and workshop participants include researchers and executives from Microsoft, IBM, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and more.
