The ONNA 2013 workshop will be held at OIST Graduate University (http://www.oist.jp) from 1-7th June 2013. The aim of the workshop is to bring together experts and early stage researchers, from diverse communities, who use optical micro and nanofibers or waveguides for their research needs, whether it be for quantum, biological or other applications. The number of participants is limited and will be based on application. Full financial support (air ticket, accommodation at Seaside House, OIST and meals) available.
The study of thermalization has become an especially hot topic of research in the past several years, and there are multiple advanced workshops on the subject. However, these have been aimed at experts in the field. There is a clear need for an instructional program targeted at educating junior researchers across the disciplines including statistical mechanics, hard and soft condensed-matter physics, biophysics, nuclear physics, string theory, and quantum information theory.
A postgraduate student conference on Mathematical Techniques for Quantum Physics will take place in Nottingham (U.K.) from 7 - 9 November 2012.
The conference will emphasise quantum information, quantum gravity and quantum disordered systems. Respectively, the invited speakers from each area are:
*Nilanjana Datta (Cambridge),
*Samuel Braunstein (York), and
*Karoline Wiesner (Bristol).
Call for Applications:
A 2,5 year Post-Doc position is available at the Institute for Logic, Language and Computation at the University of Amsterdam. The candidate will join the Vidi project of Dr. Sonja Smets.
