Vienna Graduate Conference on Complex Quantum Systems 2019

Monday, 28 October 2019, - Wednesday, 30 October 2019

Ceremonial Hall, University of Vienna, Universitätsring 1, 1010 Vienna

We invite students and young researchers from all over the world who want to connect to the modern trends in controlling complex quantum systems to join us in Vienna.

Keynote talks by world-leading experts from abroad will be accompanied by tutorials and alumni and student presentations on the research activities within the Vienna Doctoral Program on Complex Quantum Systems (CoQuS). They will highlight present achievements and future perspectives in the focus areas of CoQuS: quantum foundations, quantum matter and quantum technologies.

We will support a small number of postgraduate students who otherwise would not be able to attend the conference contributing towards their travel and accommodation costs.
