669. WE-Heraeus Seminar: Quantum Gases and Quantum Coherence

This conference brings together a broad community of senior and junior scientists to address the most recent developments in the emerging cross-disciplinary research field involving ultracold atoms, quantum many-body physics, quantum simulation and quantum information.  

The main themes of this edition will be

  • Non-equilibrium physics and dynamics
  • Artificial gauge fields
  • Topological phases
  • Strongly correlated systems
  • Ultracold atoms and quantum technologies
  • From few to many-body physics

The conference will take place at the Physikzentrum, Bad Honnef (Germany) and is funded by the WE Heraeus Foundation. The number of participants to this conference is limited to 80 participants. The application deadline will be the 15th of Feb. 2018 . Successful applicants will be informed by the WE Heraeus-Foundation after the application deadline.
