Quantum Technologies Conference II

Manipulating photons, atoms, and molecules

August 30 - September 4, 2011
Kraków, Poland

General Information

The conference is organized by Jagiellonian University, Faculty of Physics of University of Warsaw, and the Institute of Physics of the Polish Academy of Sciences, in cooperation with the Center for Quantum Technologies of Atoms and Light, and the "Pro Physica" Foundation. The conference will be held in Kraków, Poland, on August 30 - September 4, 2011.

The meeting will focus on the latest achievements in the rapidly growing field of quantum engineering with a particular emphasis on the most recent advances in the broad field of atomic physics, including precision measurements; ultracold Bose and Fermi gases; ultracold molecules; quantum simulators and quantum information with atoms and ions; quantum optics.

All accepted participants will be invited to present 20-30 minutes talk during the conference. We plan some keynote lectures. There will be no poster sessions.
