Call for Papers – Quantum Computing Applications – HICSS 2024 – Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences
Quantum computing is a rapidly evolving field with a wide range of applications in diverse industries. Hybrid quantum computing combines classical and quantum computing to solve complex problems, quantum machine learning is a subset of machine learning that leverages quantum computing for optimization, and quantum embeddings use quantum algorithms to process high dimensional data. Quantum computers have the potential to revolutionize finance, industry, production, drug research, and even consumer-facing services. With quantum computing’s ability to handle massive amounts of data and perform complex calculations at incredible speeds, it holds great promise for addressing some of the world’s most pressing problems in these areas. The minitrack invites researchers from computer science, natural sciences, engineering, and economics fields to submit their research on applications of quantum computing.
