HU faculty will be hosting two sessions at the IEEE International Conference on Quantum Computing and Engineering (QCE 21; a.k.a. IEEE Quantum Week). The event will be held [online] during the week of Oct. 17-21, 2021. QCE is bridging the gap between the science of quantum computing and the development of an industry surrounding it. The event brings a perspective to the quantum industry different from academic or business conferences. IEEE Quantum Week is a multidisciplinary quantum computing and engineering venue that gives attendees the unique opportunity to discuss challenges and opportunities with quantum researchers, scientists, engineers, entrepreneurs, developers, students, practitioners, educators, programmers, and newcomers.

Professor Terrill Frantz will lead discussions at two separate Bird-of-a-Feather sessions: one focusing on Quantum Technology Jobs; and the second on Quantum Technology Standardization. HU is heavily engaged in analysis of the economics of the quantum technology labor market, both from the supply and demand sides. The university provides university- an high school-level educational programs to train the future workforce; Moreover, HU maintains and publishes the most complete database of global job openings in the industry.  HU is also deeply engaged in the global standards-setting processes in quantum technologies, having leadership roles in IEEE and ISO based projects, and in engaged in World Economic Forum and ITU projects, among others.
