Special Section on Quantum Engineering Education

Call for Papers

Training the next generation of quantum scientists and engineers is critical to the future development of the field. Innovative educational initiatives in quantum engineering often cut across disciplines, including computer science, electrical engineering, and physics. This special section is aimed at promoting new approaches to educating students in the various areas of quantum engineering.

The topics of interest include but are not limited to:

* Quantum curriculum structure
* Evaluations of teaching effectiveness
* New tools for teaching quantum concepts

Nature of TQE

TQE https://tqe.ieee.org is a continuously published, peer-reviewed, open access journal accessible through IEEE Xplore at https://ieeexplore.ieee.org/xpl/tocresult.jsp?isnumber=8961200.

Upon acceptance, the author-supplied preprint will be given a DOI number and posted immediately on IEEE Xplore for early access. The manuscript will be professionally edited and the resulting final copy will replace the preprint.

Contributions will be indexed to this special section so IEEE Xplore can display a list of all the articles submitted in response to this call for papers. There is no limit on the number of papers in this special section.

Submission Guidelines

Prospective authors must follow the TQE manuscript requirements posted at https://tqe.ieee.org.

Papers are published under the Creative Commons CCBY license terms.

Important Dates

Manuscripts Due: Submissions are open now through June 30, 2021 but the end date may be extended.

Expected Publication: Early access available shortly after peer review.
