Call for Papers:

Current Developments in Quantum Hybrid Systems

Final Submission Deadline
November 20, 2023

A special issue of Applied Sciences (ISSN 2076-3417). This special issue belongs to the section “Quantum Science and Technology“.

Deadline for manuscript submissions: 20 November 2023.

Special Issue Information

We invite researchers and experts to contribute their original work to a Special Issue on “Recent Advances in Quantum Hybrid Systems”. The synergy between diverse forms of quantum and classical processing is vital to the rapid advancement of quantum computing. This Special Issue aims to showcase the latest progress in different aspects of hybrid quantum classical systems, ranging from applications to devices. Topics of interest include novel applications for quantum acceleration, software for quantum systems, hybrid quantum algorithms, quantum-inspired approaches, fault-tolerant quantum computing, quantum peripheral electronics, and quantum/classical resource estimation.

We welcome high-quality submissions that explore these topics and related areas, focusing on cutting-edge research, new tools and methods, and practical utility. Contributions may include original research papers, review articles, or perspectives; we are looking to provide a comprehensive overview of the field.

By participating in this Special Issue, you will have the opportunity to contribute to our collective knowledge of quantum hybrid systems and shape the future of this exciting field. All submissions will undergo a rigorous peer-review process conducted by field experts. We look forward to receiving your valuable contributions.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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.
