Welcome to the UltraCold Atom News (UCAN) web page, dedicated to tracking activity in the study of neutral quantum degenerate gases. Our pages include: a job posting board; information about upcoming conferencesnews of observations of Bose-Einstein condensates and degenerate Fermi gases; a general reference page about quantum degeneracy; and contact information for both experimental and theoretical groups active in the field -- so far in 30 countries.

Are you a researcher who wants to post to this site?

  1. Log in (or register if you need an account)
    2. Post your news: conferences, jobs, observations, etc 
    3. You will be the owner of your postings, so can return to update or modify as needed

Note that you do not need to contact the organizers to post your announcement: "U CAN" do it yourself...! A short help intro is available at: Help Document for Content Providers. On the other hand, if you would like some help, or have any comments or suggestions, please contact us. Thanks!
