Announcing the inaugural Quantum Thermodynamics Down Under (QTDU) conference in Brisbane, Australia, 7th -- 10th November 2023.

QTDU2023 is an opportunity for researchers in quantum thermodynamics and related fields to get to know each other, fostering new connections and collaborations across Australia, the Asia-Pacific region, and internationally.

  • When: 7th -- 10th November 2023
  • Where: 308 Queen Street, Brisbane (the University of Queensland's new city campus)
  • Fees: $90 (support for registrants with limited funding is available)

The four-day conference is centred around, but not limited to, four themes:

  1. Fundamental questions in quantum thermodynamics
  2. Benefits and applications of quantum thermal machines
  3. Connections between quantum thermodynamics and other fields, such as quantum information and quantum biology
  4. Incorporating quantum thermodynamics into outreach events

We are excited to announce our confirmed invited speakers:

  • Janet Anders, Associate Professor in Quantum Theory, University of Exeter, UK
  • Michael Jack, Associate Professor at the Centre for Sustainability, University of Otago, NZ
  • Joan Vaccaro, Professor and Chief Investigator at the Centre for Quantum Dynamics, Griffith University, Australia
  • Thomas Busch, Professor at the Quantum Systems Unit, Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology, Japan
  • Nicole Yunger Halpern, Fellow at the Joint Centre for Quantum Information and Computer Science, University of Maryland, USA (joining online)

Abstract submission for contributed talks is now open!

We will be accepting registrations after abstracts have been reviewed. Numbers are capped so priority for registration will be given to those presenting a talk.

Key dates:

  • 30 June: Abstract submission deadline
