Okinawa School in Physics: Coherent Quantum Dynamics (CQD 2017)


Tuesday, September 26, 2017 (All day) to Thursday, October 5, 2017 (All day)


OIST Seaside House



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 and new approach has attracted many young researchers and summer schools - at which leading experts share their knowledge and directly interact with the participants - have become an integral part of the community.

The school will consist of lectures delivered by Japanese and international experts on the fundamentals of the area.  This will be supplemented by accessible presentations (colloquia) on cutting-edge research problems.  All participants should present a poster based on their current research.  

OIST is deeply committed to the advancement of women in science, in Japan and worldwide. In order to assist principal child carers in participating at this workshop we can provide additional support (such as flights for the child(ren) and child care) where necessary.   Information available on request.
