The International Workshop on Quantum Data Science and Management (QDSM 2024)

In conjunction with VLDB 2024

Aims of the Workshop

The field of quantum computing has experienced remarkable progress after decades of research and development. Prototypes of quantum computers already exist and have been made available to users through cloud services (e.g., IBM Q experience, Google quantum AI, or Xanadu quantum cloud). While fault-tolerant and large-scale quantum computers are not available yet, the potential of this new technology is undeniable. Quantum algorithms have the proven ability to either outperform classical approaches for various tasks or are impossible to be efficiently simulated by classical means under reasonable complexity-theoretic assumptions. Even imperfect current-day technology is speculated to exhibit computational advantages over classical systems.

For most database researchers, quantum computing and quantum machine learning are still new research fields. The goal of this workshop is to bring together academic researchers and industry practitioners from multiple disciplines (e.g., database, AI, software, physics, etc.) to discuss the challenges, solutions, and applications of quantum computing and quantum machine learning that have the potential to advance the state of the art of data science and data management technologies. Our purpose is to foster the interaction between database researchers and more traditional quantum disciplines, as well as industrial users. The workshop serves as a forum for the growing quantum computing community to connect with database researchers to discuss the wider questions and applications of how quantum resources can benefit data science and data management tasks, and how quantum software can support this endeavor.

We believe that many unsolved and interesting issues can be found at boundaries and intersections between different fields and that there are insufficient venues to publish such cross-disciplinary results. We also believe that an important aspect of future quantum computing will concern issues of handling data in one way or another. This workshop will serve as a venue not only to discuss early, experimental results in research, but also to feature a demonstration part with the intention of providing attendees with first-hand experience in using novel quantum computing techniques that go beyond the simple examples offered by various web services. This will give researchers a realistic intuition about quantum computing for data science and data management tasks.

Categories of Papers

The workshop solicits papers of the following categories:

  • Research Papers propose new approaches, theories or techniques related to quantum data science and management including new data structures, protocols and algorithms. They should make substantial theoretical and empirical contributions to the research field.

  • System Papers describe new systems and whole frameworks for enabling quantum data science and management.

  • Experiments and Analysis Papers focus on the experimental evaluation of existing approaches including data structures and algorithms for quantum data science and management and bring new insights through the analysis of these experiments. Results of Experiments and Analysis Papers can be, for example, showing the benefits of well-known approaches in new settings and environments, opening new research problems by demonstrating unexpected behavior or phenomena, or comparing a set of traditional approaches in an experimental survey.

  • Application Papers report practical experiences on applications of quantum data science and management. Application Papers might describe how to apply quantum technologies to specific application domains.

  • Vision Papers identify emerging new or future research issues and directions and describe new research visions for quantum data science and management. The new visions will potentially have significant impacts on society.

  • Demo Papers deal with innovative approaches and applications for quantum data science and management. These papers describe a showcase of the proposed approach/application. We are especially interested in demonstrations having a WOW-effect.

The length of papers must be within 5 pages to 10 pages. Accepted papers will be published in the CEUR Workshop proceedings (CEUR-WS.org) and presented as oral presentations.
