WINTER SCHOOL: COLLECTIVE EFFECTS, STRUCTURED LIGHT AND QUANTUM MATTER

Date: 
2019-03-04 - 2019-03-08
Place: 
Herrsching am Ammersee, near Munich, Germany

This event is organized by the European Training Network ColOpt. It is a residential school for young researchers (predoctoral, to early post doctoral) working in the areas of cold atoms, out-of-equilibrium quantum physics and quantum technologies. The Winter school venue is in Herrsching am Ammersee near Munich in the Haus der bayerischen Landwirtschaft. The programme includes research presentations and interactive sessions of esteemed speakers and a young scientist workshop with talks from rising stars. In line with the inter-sectorial strategy of ColOpt, career talks give an overview on careers in quantum technology and laser development, non-academic research institutes and career paths outside of core physics. Delegates will have the opportunity to present posters. The best student poster submissions will be invited to give oral presentations within the young scientist workshop.
