The study of quantum coherent dynamics is currently one of the most active and exciting areas in physics. It holds the promise for the development of new technologies (quantum computing, quantum metrology,...) and, at the same time, has already delivered insights into the foundations of quantum mechanics. Its fast moving pace, in both theory and experiment, has attracted many young researchers and summer schools have become an integral part of the education and networking of students.
The school “Frontiers of Quantum Physics and Quantum Information” aims at providing a comprehensive overview of new and exciting research lines at the frontiers of quantum physics by known experts in the field. It covers a broad spectrum of concepts and questions, from abstract problems in quantum information theory to quantum optics experiments using ultra-cold gases.
