This is the fourth in a series of meeting on quantum dynamics, and also the inaugural workshop of the newly created
"Centre for the Mathematics and Theoretical Physics of Quantum Non-Equilibrium Systems" at the University of Nottingham.

The aim of the Workshop is to discuss current theoretical developments on quantum non-equilibrium dynamics at the interface of statistical mechanics, condensed matter, cold atoms, quantum information, metrology and control.

The Quantum Information group led by Prof. Dr. Dagmar Bruss at Institute for Theoretical Physics, Duesseldorf University, Germany, is looking for two doctoral candidates to join the EU‐funded Innovative Training Network QCALL (Quantum Communication for All). One PhD student will conduct a project on "Long-distance quantum key distribution over integrated satellite-repeater links", and the othe one a project about "Multipartite quantum communication systems".
