[ID=661760] Go to top of page
 LocationSanta Barbara, United States
 Organizer Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics
 Abstract Interacting artificial many-body systems play a fundamental role in the development of quantum simulators. Using engineered photonic systems, it has recently become possible to realize strongly interacting photon gases, which are particularly well suited for probing non-equilibrium many-body physics. The driven-dissipative nature of these systems is a major reason for the interest in them. Radiative losses are crucial to obtain real-time experimental access to the dynamical evolution of the quantum fluid, while new quantum phases of matter are expected to appear in such non-equilibrium many-body scenarios. These developments require novel theoretical tools to describe and understand them.

3.Third Conference on Quantum Thermodynamics
 Dates 11 Oct 2015 → 16 Oct 2015
[ID=708184] Go to top of page
 LocationPorquerolles Island, France
 Abstract The discovery of the principles of thermodynamics for classical systems was a great advance of 19th century physics. However, for quantum systems, the role of these principles are still very poorly understood. In recent years there have been great advances in the control and observation of heat, work and information in experiments on quantum systems. These provide an ideal testbed for the theories of quantum thermodynamics, and will help clarify the definition and interplay of entropy, information, heat and work in quantum mechanics. This conference is gathering experts in the fields of quantum thermodynamics and quantum information, both theorists and experimentalists. The goal of the event is to foster crossed fertilization between the different communities. Potential experiments in the field will be particularly considered, building on the wide range of devices able to process quantum information, whose recent developments have been spectacular.
 Topics Experiments in the Quantum World, Thermodynamics and classical information, Quantum equilibration, Classical and quantum trajectories, Quantum Engines, Quantum detectors of heat and work
 Related subject(s) Thermodynamics, Fluid Dynamics and Statistical Physics
4.MBL15 — Many-body Localization
 Dates 12 Oct 2015 → 18 Dec 2015
[ID=661868] Go to top of page
 LocationSanta Barbara, United States
 Organizer Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics
 Abstract This program will focus on the manifestations of quantum mechanics in highly excited many-body systems. The common assumption that interacting systems equilibrate under their own dynamics has been challenged by recent studies. Several concrete examples, united under the moniker of many-body localization, demonstrate that interacting systems can instead exist in localized states, which retain quantum coherence.; In contrast to equilibrated systems, localized systems may exhibit quantum order even at high temperature and thus act as interacting quantum memories for extended periods.; Alternatively, many-body systems may exhibit very slow dynamics and long pre-thermal behavior as a consequence of emergent constants of motion.

5.EmQM15 — Emergent Quantum Mechanics 2015
 Dates 23 Oct 2015 → 25 Oct 2015
[ID=742060] Go to top of page
 LocationVienna, Austria
 Abstract The symposium invites the open exploration of the quantum state as a reality. The resurgence of interest in ontological quantum theory, including both deterministic and indeterministic approaches, challenges long held assumptions and directs focus towards the following questions: Is the world local or nonlocal? What is the nature of quantum nonlocality? If nonlocal, i.e., superluminal, influences exist then why can’t they be used for superluminal signalling and communication? How is the role of the scientific observer/agent to be accounted for in realistic approaches to quantum theory? How could recent developments in the field of space-time as an emergent phenomenon advance new insight at this research frontier? What new experiments might contribute to new understanding? These and related questions will be addressed in the context also of a possible „deeper level theory“ for quantum mechanics that interconnects three fields of knowledge: emergence, the quantum, and information. Could there appear a revised image of physical reality from recognizing new links between emergence, the quantum, and information? The symposium provides a forum for considering (i) current theoretical and conceptual obstacles which need to be overcome as well as (ii) promising developments and research opportunities on the way towards realistic quantum mechanics. Contributions are invited that present current advances in both standard as well as unconventional approaches.

 Abstract The Nature is always changed dynamically even in quantum mechanics. Quantum walks, which are quantum-mechanical analogues of random walks, are promising toy models to understand quantum dynamics. Surprisingly, these models can be experimentally demonstrated in some physical models. This workshop will be open for interdisciplinary researchers from the theoretical and experimental sides on the discrete-time and continuous-time quantum walks, for examples, mathematics, physics, quantum information, and statistical mechanics. The organizers strongly encourage young researchers to actively join us to this workshop. The series of the workshops on quantum walk was held at Tokyo, Japan (2011, cancelled), Valencia, Spain (2011), Okazaki, Japan (2012), Pisa, Italy (2013), Durban, South Africa (2014).
