Do not miss out this year’s Central European Workshop on Quantum Optics!

It will take place 26-30 June 2017 at the Department of Physics, Technical University of Denmark, in the beautiful surroundings of Lyngby (near Copenhagen). Some information about the event can be found at the address www.cewqo2017.dk . The conference is preceded by a PhD summer school in optical quantum technology.

The conference series was initiated in early 1990s in Central Europe and evolved over more than 20 years into one of most prominent annual meetings for scientists interested in quantum optics and quantum information. The conference has travelled across Europe and in 2017 it will come for the very first time to Denmark.

The conference will have a special focus on optical quantum technologies; in addition to a lot of new frontier quantum physics, the conference will include numerous talks related to quantum technologies, there will be a session dedicated to commercialization of quantum technologies. It will be a single track workshop with numerous invited and competitively selected contributed talks. We expect around 250 participants.

In the week prior to the conference, we will organize a PhD summer school within the topic of optical quantum technology (homepage is soon available). It will be a great opportunity for PhD students in quantum optics to learn about modern concepts in quantum optical technology along a steep learning curve, thus being fully prepared for the advanced talks during the conference.

We hope to see you in Lyngby.
