The noisy-intermediate-scale-quantum (NISQ) Computing newsletter is a curated ArXiv Digest published once a month by the USRA Research Institute for Advanced Computer Science. We feature exclusively experiments and algorithms that advance the field of applied quantum computing in existing hardware. The team of editors collaborates with the NASA Ames Quantum Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (QuAIL) to produce the content.

To submit a paper for consideration please visit the NISQC newsletter page at http://riacs.usra.edu/quantum/NISQC-NL.
