Quantum Transport with Cold Atoms

Transport problems are ubiquitous in quantum physics, from applied condensed matter physics to conceptual questions on the time evolution of closed systems. Recently, a large number of experiments have been conducted using cold atoms in order to tackle these problems experimentally, with a wide range motivations and experimental and theoretical techniques. This conference aims at bringing together experimentalists and theoreticians of the cold atoms community and beyond around this topic, to confront the approaches and discuss the perspectives.

Topics covered include:

  • Anderson and Many-body localisation
  • Spin and energy transport in cold gases
  • Superfluid dynamics
  • Edge transport and topological effects

The conference takes place in the unique setting of the Centro Stefano Franscini in Ticino (Switzerland), and will combine invited talks, contributed talks and poster sessions.
