Workshop on Compound (atomic) quantum systems

2019-05-20 - 2019-05-24
Registration deadline: 
2019-02-03 (All day)
Lorentz Center, Leiden

The scope of the workshop is to discuss impurity physics and transport in ultracold synthetic quantum matter as well as solid-state systems in order to find synergies among the different communities and to identify common goals.

In additional to presentations by young and senior researchers, we shall have parallel sessions consisting of small groups discussing specialised topics as well as identify new challenges and ideas for the field.

The workshop will take place from Monday, May 20, to Friday, May 24, 2019, in the Lorentz Center at Leiden (The Netherlands). We note that the success of the workshop would benefit from all participants staying for the full duration of the workshop, or at least a large fraction of it.

Further information on the event as well as on the registration can be found here:

The deadline for the registration is Sunday, February 3, 2019. We note that since the maximum number of participants cannot exceed 55, only a limited number of places are available. Applicants will be informed about their application not later than Sunday, February 24, 2019.
