Ultracold Atoms Japan 2022

This conference will be a hybrid conference with both online and on-site attendees.  We will accept on-site participants from within Japan only.

Dates: TBA
April 2022, Okinawa, Japan

Ultracold atoms have in the past two decades become one of the most active and exciting research areas in physics. Cold atomic systems are low energy, pure and highly configurable and therefore allow to create setups in which new and advanced quantum mechanical effects can be studied and engineered. In fact, cold atomic systems are not only at the forefront for discovering fundamental new physics, they are also at the frontier in the development of advanced quantum technologies, such as quantum simulators or quantum metrology devices. The awarding of the Nobel Prizes in 2012, 2001 and 1997 to work in this area can be seen as a recognition of its groundbreaking potential.

The aim of the workshop is to bring together experts representing leading theoretical and experimental groups working in the area of ultracold atoms. In particular it will focus on the connection between the Japanese and the international community and provide platform for exchange and the creation of sustainable connections. To facilitate this, the format will allow for invited and contributed talks on most recent results and developments, poster presentations of younger researchers and discussions during social time and joint meals. The compact form of the workshop and the joint meals will also allow students direct access to the invited speakers.

The number of participants is strictly limited
