NSF EPSCoR Workshop on Quantum Computing, Information, Science,
At the NSF, Alexandria, VA on March 23rd–24th, 2023.
Quantum computing and quantum information science and
engineering is one of the most critical and emerging worldwide
The importance of both the quantum research endeavors and the
equally important training of a quantum-ready workforce was
stressed in the National Quantum Initiative Act of 2019.
This workshop brings together researchers and administrators from
the Established Program to Stimulate Competitive Research
states and territories to identify how their institutions can
better contribute to the field of quantum computing and
quantum information science and engineering.
The workshop involves attendees learning about the current
state of select quantum computing and quantum information
science and engineering topics.
The workshop has two main Intellectual Merit goals:
(a) provide a platform for collaborative research;
(b) act as a litmus test to determine the state of affairs
related to quantum computing and quantum information science
and engineering within the Established Program to Stimulate
Competitive Research jurisdictions.
The Broader Impact of this workshop is to facilitate academic
institutions to understand better (a) why they should and
(b) examples of how they might contribute to the education of
their undergraduate and graduate students for entry into the
This workshop will directly impact roughly 50 attendees.
By learning about other quantum researchers and institutions,
it is expected that organically new and stronger collaborations
will emerge to realize the vision of the National Quantum
Initiative Act and the vision of the Established Program to
Stimulate Competitive Research.
The tangible outcome of the workshop in the form of a publicly
available report will have an enormous impact not only on the
current quantum computing and quantum information science and
engineering researchers but also on the next generation of
researchers that look for guidance and reassurance.
