...celebrating Crispin Gardiner's contributions to Quantum Optics and Atom Optics.
The workshop will cover hot topics in quantum optics and ultracold quantum gases, from both theory and experiment. A particular focus will be on quantum aspects of matter waves and macroscopic quantum states, going beyond the methods and predictions of mean-field theory. This will include advances in analytical and computational methods, the latest experimental results probing the quantum nature of BECs, and applications of BEC to quantum information.
Invited speakers: Brian Anderson, Rob Ballagh, Howard Carmichael, Subhash Chaturvedi, Crispin Gardiner, Ed Hinds, Gerd Leuchs, Scott Parkins, Silvania Pereira (tbc), Chris Westbrook, Peter Zoller (tbc)
