The interest on quantum computing has grown dramatically due to its incomparable computation power and many promising applications. This new computing paradigm influences the way on how future information systems will be built.

We believe reengineering, and more specifically software modernization using model-driven engineering principles, could be useful for migrating classical systems toward hybrid ones. In particular, this paper presents a reverse engineering technique that analyses quantum software information from Q# code and generates more abstract models.

This paper is part of the aQuantum research line Hybrid Classical-Quantum Computing.

The Conference paper presented by Luis Jiménez-Navajas (Alarcos Research Group-UCLM and aQuantum Research), Ricardo Pérez-Castillo (IT & Social Sciences School of Talavera and aQuantum Senior Research) and Mario Piattini Velthuis (Leader of the Alarcos Research Group-UCLM and aQuantum Science Team Leader) in the International Conference on the Quality of Information and Communications Technology (QUATIC 2020) has been published as Part of the Communications in Computer and Information Science book series (CCIS, volume 1266).

The aQuantum team congratulates Luis, Ricardo and Mario for this publication, which will contribute to the advancement of knowledge of aQuantum and the research community on the Conventional and classic software integration with quantum software.
