Winterschool on Non-Equilibrium Quantum Systems:
Theory and Experimental Implementation
Universitätszentrum Obergurgl, 7.-10. April 2015
Chair: Jörg Schmiedmayer (Vienna Center for Quantum Science and Technology, Atominstitut, TU-Wien)
Co-chairs: Thomas Gasenzer (Univ. Heidelberg)
We aim to bring together the theoretical models of many body quantum systems and the emerging experimental techniques to probe these systems. Our goal is to build a common language and reach a better understanding between diverse groups employing different techniques.
The Winterschool is aimed at PhD students and Postdocs who work in quantum field theory or in many body quantum physics experiments.
Venue: Obergurgl is located in the Ötztal in Tyrol (the 3300 year old mummy “Oetzi the Iceman” was named after the valley and was found in a glacier close to that place). It is a prominent skiing resort in winter and a nice and relaxing alpine resort in summer. The conference will be held at the University Centre Obergurgl, which is associated with the University of Innsbruck.
Lectures will be held in the morning and in the afternoon, with an extended lunch break, allowing enough time for discussions and outdoor activities during the day.
Theory will presented in 4 courses of 3 lectures each.
Experimental techniques and results will be presented in a series of 11 lectures.
There will be the opportunity to contribute posters. Given the number of participants we expect the poster sessions, which will run throughout the week, to be a substantial element of the meeting.
The conference is sponsored by the Austrian Science Fund FWF via the Spezialforschungsbereich FoQuS, by the ExtreMe Matter Institut EMMI, by Universität Heidelberg and by the EU-Networks SIQS and AQuS.
