We are happy to announce the 21. Young Atom Opticians (YAO) Conference to take place in Spring 2015 at ETH Zurich. The YAO conference is renowned to be a great meeting ground for young researchers in both experimental and theoretical atomic physics and an excellent platform to present their work. It is specifically aimed at graduate students in the starting phase of their PhD. The goal is to provide insight into the various research areas of modern quantum optics while the conference enables the exchange of participants in a relaxed and unforced atmosphere.

The YAO 2015 conference will take place from Sunday, 19th to Friday, 24th of April 2015. Apart from the poster presentations and the talks, this years’ edition will feature five invited talks:

Rainer Blatt: University of Innsbruck, Austria
