Call for Participation – IEEE P3155™, Standard for Programmable Quantum Simulator

IEEE Nanotechnology Council/ Standards Committee & Programmable Quantum Simulator Working Group Meeting

IEEE Standards Association (IEEE SA) invites you to participate in the Working Group for IEEE P3155™, Standard for Programmable Quantum Simulator. Next Meeting July 15.

The quantum simulator (i.e., one controllable quantum system simulates another) has a quantum advantage over classical supercomputers that fail by exponential explosion (i.e., number of parameters grows exponentially with the quantum system size). This standard defines programming methods of quantum simulators according to analog (i.e., target Hamiltonian), digital (i.e., non-native Hamiltonian evolution) and hybrid (i.e., quantum-quantum or quantum-classical architectures) devices for the simulation of quantum phenomena beyond classical computing applications. It includes algorithms to represent the nano-scale properties of quantum simulation devices, and excludes any proposal for the architecture of quantum simulators.

Next Meeting Date: Friday, 15 July 2022
Time: 11:00 AM – 1:00 PM EDT

Meeting registration is required.
