Cold Atoms meet Quantum Field Theory

595th International Wilhelm und Else Heraeus-Seminar

Bad Honnef/Germany, July 6 - 9, 2015

Cold Atoms meet Quantum Field Theory

will take place in Bad Honnef, a small town close to Bonn/Germany from Monday, July 6, 2015 to Thursday, July 9, 2015.

The workshop is supported by the Wilhelm und Else Heraeus-Stiftung and will be held at the Physikzentrum Bad Honnef, a conference center of the German Physical Society.

The aim of the workshop is to bring together physicists (both theorists and experimentalists) active in different lines of research related to the application of Quantum Field Theory in the physics of cold atoms.

There are three main topics to be addressed:
