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. All participants will be required to present a poster based on their current research.
Main Details: The registration fee is 50,000 JPY and includes accommodation (in twin-share rooms) and meals. OIST will handle all the local logistics. OIST will also help with arranging visas when necessary. A very small number of participants can be offered financial travel support.
OIST is deeply committed to the advancement of women in science, in Japan and worldwide. Women are strongly encouraged to apply.
