Many-body physics with photons and polaritons is a highly interdisciplinary field, merging diverse areas such as nano-photonics, quantum optics, condensed matter physics, and quantum technologies. The inherent accessibility to local observables, and the ability to probe out-of-equilibrium phenomena make driven many-body photonic systems especially promising for a variety of applications in quantum simulations and quantum computing, as well as in materials science and optical circuitry. Theory proposals and preliminary experimental works cover a wide range of systems, ranging from superconducting circuits and exciton-polariton systems, to slow light set ups, all the way to integrated nano-photonic structures.

The goal of this residential joint school and workshop, is to help to bring the different scientific communities together, discuss the state of the art developments and the open challenges in this field, and provide training for young researchers in diverse topics ranging from quantum many-body systems all the way to quantum-nanophotonics.
