Okinawa School in Physics: Coherent Quantum Dynamics



Submission deadline: 

Thursday, June 4, 2015

The study of quantum coherent dynamics is currently one of the most active and exciting areas in physics. It holds the promise for the development of new technologies (quantum computing, quantum metrology,...) and, at the same time, has already delivered insights into the foundations of quantum mechanics. Its fast moving pace, in both theory and experiment, has attracted many young researchers and summer schools have become an integral part of the education and networking of students.

The school will consist of lectures delivered by Japanese and international experts on fundamental problems of the area. These will be supplemented by accessible presentations (colloquia) on cutting-edge research problems. Additionally, we will organise problem solving sessions, which are partly tutorial style and partly open-ended, and two sessions on (English language) presentation skills. All participants will be required to present a poster based on their current research.

Main Details: There is no registration fee. OIST will handle the logistics and cover the cost of twin-share accommodation at Seaside House and meals for all participants. OIST will also help with arranging visas when necessary. A reasonable number of participants will be offered financial travel support. Please state on your application whether you need support for your airfare or not.

OIST is deeply committed to the advancement of women in science, in Japan and worldwide. Women are strongly encouraged to apply.
