The third meeting of the COST Action MP1209 “Thermodynamics at the quantum scale” will be held in Belfast, organised by the Quantum Technology group at Queen’s University Belfast. The meeting will address the blossoming field of quantum thermodynamics, focusing on the themes addressed by the three working groups of the Action:

WG1: Equilibration, thermalisation & emergence of canonical states
WG2: Thermodynamic and information theoretic relations for general quantum systems
WG3: Implementations, from classical to quantum thermodynamic experiments

The list of invited speakers includes

Antonio Acin, ICFO Barcelona (Spain)
Lidia del Rio, ETH Zuerich (Switzerland)
Mikko Mottonen, Aalto University (Finland)
Ahsan Nazir, University of Manchester (United Kingdom)
Ferdinand Schmidt-Kaler, Universitaet Mainz (Germany)
