The scope of this dedicated workshop is to explore the opportunities for the application of quantum technology and optimization problems in networked systems. The workshop is part of NetSys, a biennal event originating from the key scientific conference on networked systems in German-speaking countries – KiVS (Kommunikation in Verteilten Systemen) – which was initiated 37 years ago and has international orientation since 2013. Over the last decade, a wide variety of experimental quantum computing hardware has been invented and used for fundamental demonstrations in laboratories. First results confirm feasibility of such hardware in real-world applications. Recently one can observe upcoming research in areas like traffic flow optimization, mobile sensor placement, machine learning, and many more. The development of quantum computing hardware, be it in the quantum gate model or adiabatic quantum computation (quantum annealing), made huge progress in the last years. This started to transfer knowhow from quantum technology based research to algorithms and applications. This development is offering numerous opportunities to contribute within research, theory, applied technologies and engineering. The following topics are crucial to the development of future improvements in networked systems based on quantum technology and optimization problems:
The aim of this workshop is to connect people from academia and industry to discuss about theory, technology and applications and exchange ideas to move efficiently forward in the engineering and development in the exciting area of quantum technology and optimization problems in networked systems.
