The workshop aims to bring together researchers from quantum computing, electronic design automation, and compiler construction. Open questions that we anticipate this group to tackle include new methods for circuit synthesis and optimization, optimizations and rewriting, techniques for verifying the correctness of quantum programs, and new techniques for compiling efficient circuits and protocols regarding fault-tolerant and architecture constraints.


The scope of the workshop includes, but is not limited to, current hot topics in quantum circuit design such as:

  • space-optimizing compilers for reversible circuits
  • design-space exploration for automatic code generation from classical HDL specification
  • quantum programming languages
  • reversible logic synthesis - technology-aware mapping
  • error correction
  • optimized libraries (e.g., for arithmetic and Hamiltonian simulation)
  • benchmarking of circuits for small and medium scale quantum computers
  • quantum and reversible circuit peep-holing and (re)synthesis
  • software and tools for all above mentioned topics
