Quantum information and communication technology(QICT) holds out tremendous promise for efficiently solving some of the most difficult problems that are intractable on any present or future conventional computer. QICT is one of the most active research areas of modern science, attracting substantial funding that supports research groups at internationally leading academic institutions. To facilitate the progress of QICT research towards the commercialization, a roadmap needs to be formulated, providing some direction for the field with specific technical goals and elucidating interrelationships between approaches for synergistic solutions to obstacles within any one approach. In this paper, we suggest a brief version of roadmap for QICT research and give a discussion about the potential contribution of QICT in Korea industry.
