Best Student Paper Award

October 17, 2022 Highlighted by Quantum Science and Engineering

Cameron Ibrahim, a doctoral student in the Department of Computer & Information Sciences who is supervised by Ilya Safro, associate professor, received the Best Student Paper Award at the 2022 IEEE High Performance Extreme Computing conference. Ibrahim’s paper “Constructing Optimal Contraction Trees for Tensor Network Quantum Circuit Simulation” was presented at the Quantum and Non-Deterministic Computing Session on Sept. 19, 2022. This conference, organized in cooperation with the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM), is the largest of its kind in New England and features cutting edge work on AI, machine learning, graph analytics and quantum computing. Ibrahim’s research is focused on algorithm design for speeding up quantum computing simulations and was funded by an Early-Concept Grants for Exploratory Research (EAGER) award from the National Science Foundation, an area of research related to efforts taking place in UD’s Quantum Science and Engineering graduate program. The complete list of coauthors includes UD’s Ibrahim and Safro, Danylo Lykov and Yuri Alexeev from Argonne National Laboratory and Zichang He from UC Santa Barbara.
