The IEEE International Conference on Quantum Software (QSW) is focusing on quantum software engineering, including hybrid quantum software, quantum software development, quantum in the cloud, quantum applications, and quantum software analysis & evolution. The goal of QSW is to bring together researchers and practitioners from different areas of quantum computing and (classical) software and service engineering to strengthen the quantum software community and discuss, e.g., architectural styles, languages, and best practices of quantum software as well as many other aspects of the quantum software development lifecycle.
