The First PLanQC in the Road to Quantum Programming

As quantum computers become more practical, there is a rich opportunity to advance the development of tools to assist in the process of programming them, both now and in the future. To encourage more PL-minded researchers to work in this exciting new area, we established the Workshop on Programming Languages for Quantum Computing (PLanQC).

Secure Compilation

Secure Compilation

*Secure compilation* is an emerging field that puts together advances in programming languages, security, compilers, systems, formal verification, and hardware architectures. It aims to devise compilation chains that eliminate many of today’s security attacks, without sacrificing efficiency, and allowing sound reasoning about security properties in the source language.
