FRONTIERS IN ULTRACOLD FERMI GASES
90 years after the "birth" of fermions in Florence
Florence (Italy), 21-23 March 2016

In 1926, when he was professor in Florence, Enrico Fermi published his
famous article on the "quantization of the ideal monoatomic gas",
unveiling the behavior of the particles that, after him, would have been
named as "fermions". More than seventy years later, atomic physicists
succeeded in bringing ultracold clouds of monoatomic gases down to the
regime predicted by Fermi, starting a new field of research that has
greatly enhanced our knowledge of physics and opened new technological
avenues.

This conference, held in the location on the hill of Arcetri (Florence)
that inspired the work of Fermi, will cover the most important
developments in the field of ultracold Fermi gases, including: strongly
interacting Fermi gases, fermionic superfluidity, fermions in optical
lattices, quantum simulation with ultracold fermions.

Confirmed speakers:
Carlo Di Castro (University of Rome "La Sapienza")
Tilman Esslinger (ETH)
Stefano Giorgini (University of Trento)
Rudolf Grimm (IQOQI & University of Innsbruck)
Jason Ho (Ohio State University)
Randy Hulet (Rice University)
Giacomo Roati (CNR-INO & LENS)
Christophe Salomon (Ecole Normale Supérieure)
Gora Shlyapnikov (Université Paris-Sud & University of Amsterdam)
Giancarlo Strinati (University of Camerino)
Hui Zhai (Tsinghua University)
Martin Zwierlein (MIT)

Scientific Committee:
Massimo Inguscio (University of Florence)
Sandro Stringari (University of Trento)
Roberto Casalbuoni (University of Florence)
Leonardo Fallani (University of Florence)

Organization support:
Elisabetta Baldanzi (CNR-INO)

The conference will start on March 21st (morning) and close on March
23rd (lunchtime). The location will be the historical building, a few
kilometers from Florence downtown, where Enrico Fermi developed his
ideas and wrote his seminal paper.

There is no conference fee, but the number of participants is limited.
All interested participants are requested to register on the conference
website (http://www.fermiflorence.com).
