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:
- Fundamental questions in quantum thermodynamics
- Benefits and applications of quantum thermal machines
- Connections between quantum thermodynamics and other fields, such as quantum information and quantum biology
- 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
