Hannover – ICOLS Student workshop 2011
Monday 6 June – Wednesday 8 June, 2011
The purpose of the workshop is to create an opportunity for young scientists and PhD-Students to explore the latest results of atomic physics and ultracold atoms. The foundations, new developments and future ideas will be presented through a series of talks by invited world leading experts and through presentations and posters contributed by the participating students. The three day workshop complements the ICOLS conference (http://www.iqo.uni-hannover.de/icols2011.html) which covers the most recent advances in the broad field of atomic physics, such as atomic tests of fundamental physics and basic symmetries; precision measurements (including atomic clocks, atom interferometers and fundamental constants); ultracold gases and Bose Einstein Condensates; ultracold Fermi gases; ultracold molecules; quantum simulators with atoms and ions; few-body systems; quantum information with atoms and ions; quantum optics and cavity QED with atoms; hybrid and opto-mechanical systems; and ultrafast phenomena.
The plan is to host not more than 70 PhD students in order to maintain a very interactive workshop with fruitful discussions in the lead-up to ICOLS. We already have allocations for the following participating research centers ACQAO Australia (10 students), IFRAF France (10) and QUEST Germany (10).
The ICOLS Student workshop 2011 is organized in a collaboration of the Institute of Quantum Optics and QUEST in Hannover and the research centers ACQAO (Australia) and IFRAF (France). It will take place in the city of Hannover at a pleasant location called “Gartensaal”.
