Trieste Junior Quantum Days 2019
A look at the mysteries of quantum theory - July 24th-26th, 2019
The workshop will gather young researchers working in quantum mechanics and its applications. PhD students and PostDocs will be given the opportunity to present their research activity and interact with their colleagues, share motivations, techniques and perspectives, in a friendly and informal environment. In the morning, blackboard lectures by senior experts will provide a perspective on relevant problems in quantum theory.
Topics include: quantum information, entanglement, open quantum systems, quantum foundations, many-body physics, quantum thermodynamics, equilibrium & non-equilibrium physics, mathematical methods for quantum mechanics.
There is no fee: the workshop is kindly supported by TEQ. Participants will take care of accommodation.
This is the 3rd workshop of the Trieste Junior Quantum Days series. The first one was held in May 2017, the second in May 2018.
Registration open till July 5th 2019.
