The goal of the workshop is to discuss the challenges in the emerging field of atomtronics: Bose-Einstein condensates manipulated in “optical circuits” of very different spatial shapes and intensity. We intend to bring together experimentalists and theorists active in the field. Conceptual and applicative aspects of atomic circuits for diverse exploitations will be covered, both to extend the scope of the existing quantum simulators and to devise platforms for new routes to information technology.

The Benasque workshop will offer two-three seminars per day from the invited speakers. Working groups, self-organized and chaired discussions are a part of the Benasque Center working mode and will be encouraged. Offices/desk space will be available for the participants upon request.
A poster session will be also organized. The expected number of participants is around 50.
