On 1 September, CESI convened the second meeting of the mirror WG of the ISO/IEC JTC1/WG14 (quantum computing) in China in 2022. The meeting aimed to promote China’s participation in international standardization for quantum computing and enhance China’s sway in international standardization organizations for quantum computing. Around 20 experts from 10 colleges, R&D institutes, SDOs, and enterprises attended the meeting.

Currently, the mirror WG is promoting 4 ISO/IEC standard projects for quantum computing, as below

Next step, the mirror WG will continue supporting the development of the quantum computing roadmap in ISO/IEC JTC1 and recruiting Chinese members for IEC/SMB/SEG 14.

ISO/IEC JTC1/WG14 was established in June 2020 under China’s call, with a expert from CESI as the convenor. The mirror WG of ISO/IEC JTC1/WG14 in China was established later in August 2020, aiming to identify standardization demands in quantum computing, analyse standardization gap, convey project proposals to ISO/IEC JTC1/WG14, update the report on ICT standardization demands for quantum computing, establish connections with relevant domestic and overseas SDOs, and promote the development of standards for quantum computing in ISO/IEC. So far, no foreign enterprises participation in this mirror WG has been observed.
