This Manifesto collects some principles and commitments about the quantum software engineering and programming field, as well as some calls for action. This is the result of the discussion and different viewpoints of academia and industry practitioners who joined at the first International Workshop on QuANtum SoftWare Engineering & pRogramming (QANSWER) promoted by aQuantum in a splendid place: the School of Computer Science, in the Campus of Talavera de la Reina of the University of Castilla-La Mancha.

Announcing the JSAIT special issue "Quantum Information Science¨
It will especially focus on Communication and Computing. It will aim to bridge theory, practice and basic science, ranging from the state-of-the-art in quantum computing, to communication, coding, cryptography, and compression, as well as the current challenges remaining. An overarching theme is how the information-theoretic and quantum-physical perspectives complement each other in building these quantum technologies.
After receiving multiple questions about the deadline, we have decided to extend the abstract submission deadline of the 5th International Conference for Young Quantum Information Scientists (YQIS)! We have already received plenty of great submissions, but in case you (or your students / colleagues) have missed the deadline, you still have one week to apply for a talk! The new deadline is July 12 (23:59, AoE). You can find all the relevant information at https://yqis2019.ug.edu.pl
QuantERA has launched its second joint transnational call (Call 2019) for proposals in support of transnational research in the field of quantum technologies (QT) on November 21st, 2018. Research funding organisations from 25 countries take part in the call. The deadline to submit proposals is the 18th of February 2019.
The call covers six main topics in the QT field:
• Quantum communication
• Quantum simulation
• Quantum computation
• Quantum information sciences
• Quantum metrology sensing and imaging
Qubit Protocol is a decentralised blockchain enabled governance protocol that utilises the collective intelligence of the quantum science community to make strategic funding decisions on quantum technology projects. Projects place a proposal onto the Qubit Protocol and then experts and public token holders will be allowed to vote on the most meritorious projects to be funded.
