Quantum Simulation with Ultracold Atoms

Italian-German WE-Heraeus-Seminar

30 Sep - 02 Oct 2024


The Galileo Galilei Institute, Florence, Italy

Scientific organizers:

Prof. Dr. Immanuel Bloch, MPQ & LMU Munich, Germany • Prof. Dr. Giovanni Modugno, U Florence, Italy

The exquisite control of the quantum states and of the interactions in ultracold atomic systems is offering new opportunities for quantum simulation of complex quantum systems. These simulations provide a unique platform for scientists to recreate and delve into complex quantum phenomena, often beyond the computational reach of classical computers, with impacts on both fundamental research and potential technological applications.

This seminar will bring together the German and Italian communities active in this rapidly evolving field, providing a unique environment to exchange ideas and create new collaborations. The topics will include new phases of matter, complex quantum systems in and out of equilibrium, quantum computing applications, new tunability and control methods. The seminar will bring together renowned experts, emerging young scientists and students, with a rich program of talks, poster presentations, and discussions that will maximise the exchange of ideas at all levels.

The conference language will be English. The Wilhelm and Else Heraeus-Foundation bears the cost of full-board accommodation for all participants.
