Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Quantum computing is an emerging technology that has the potential to radically change the way we will be solving computational problems in the future. While the development of quantum computing technologies (aka, the quantum computing hardware) is in full flight, the exploration of application domains where quantum computing may have significant impact has just begun. This goes along with the development of novel quantum algorithms for today's and near-future Noisy Intermediate-Scale Quantum (NISQ) devices and their adoption in practical applications (aka, the quantum computing software). The aim of this special issue is to assemble a collection of application opportunities that might benefit from the use of quantum computing in the (near) future.

We invite contributions from all scientific disciplines and application domains including but not limited to quantum chemistry, quantum biology, cryptography, quantum communications, quantum sensing, material design, and any other type of quantum-assisted simulation and/or optimization. We, in particular, encourage the submission of contributions from `exotic’ application areas where the opportunities of using quantum computers to speed up computations or enable unprecedented applications have hardly been explored so far.

Contributions should either demonstrate the successful realization of (prototypes of) quantum-assisted applications in software and/or on real quantum hardware, or present credible approaches to solve practical applications with the aid of quantum computers in the future.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Applied Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2300 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
