Ultracold atoms have in the past two decades become one of the most active and exciting research areas in physics. Cold atomic systems are low energy, pure and highly configurable and therefore allow to create setups in which new and advanced quantum mechanical effects can be studied and engineered. In fact, cold atomic systems are not only at the forefront for discovering fundamental new physics, they are also at the frontier in the development of advanced quantum technologies, such as quantum simulators or quantum metrology devices. The awarding of the Nobel Prizes in 2012, 2001 and 1997 to work in this area can be seen as a recognition of its groundbreaking potential.

The aim of the workshop is to bring together experts representing leading theoretical and experimental groups working in the area of ultracold atoms. In particular it will focus on the connection between Japanese groups and Japan and the international community, and provide platform for exchange and the creation of sustainable connections.
