This winter school is a residential school for young researchers
(predoctoral, to early post doctoral) working in the areas of cold
atoms, out-of-equilibrium quantum physics and quantum technologies,
organized by the European Training Network ColOpt. The venue is in
Herrsching am Ammersee near Munich in the scenic alpine foreland.
The programme includes research presentations and interactive sessions of esteemed speakers and a young scientist workshop with talks from rising stars. In line with the inter-sectorial strategy of ColOpt, career talks give an overview on careers in quantum technology and laser development, non-academic research institutes and career paths outside of core physics. Delegates will have the opportunity to present posters. The best student poster submissions will be invited to give oral presentations within the young scientist workshop.
