Windsor 2022

Dynamics of Complex Quantum Systems CCPQ+9 workshop

Cumberland Lodge, July 25 - 28, 2022

Organising committee:

Stephen Clark (Bristol, CCPQ), Juan Jose Mendoza-Arenas (Bristol), Dieter Jaksch (Hamburg, CCP-QC) and James Annett (Bristol, CCP9)

This in-person workshop on the "Dynamics of Complex Quantum Systems" is to be held at Cumberland Lodge, 25th - 28th July 2022. This workshop is a part of a successful biennial series with this event being postponed from last year due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.

Its aim is to bring together both experimentalists and theorists from across the UK and Europe working on realising, simulating and modelling complex quantum systems across atomic, molecular and condensed matter physics. The major focus will be on new mathematical and computational methods, the discussion of novel experimental results and the challenges of modelling them.

The workshop is organised as a part of the UK's Collaborator Computational Projects (CCP) programme bringing together the CCPQ - Quantum Dynamics in Atomic, Molecular and Optical Physics, and CCP9 - Computational Electronic Structure of Condensed Matter.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to: cold atoms in optical lattices, quantum materials, superconductivity and superfluidity, nanomechanical oscillators in cavities, phase transitions, non-equilibrium dynamics, coherence and entanglement, and environment engineering for small scale quantum technologies. To complement this physics we also expect a wide variety of numerical methodologies, such as tensor network theory, dynamical mean-field theory, quantum Monte Carlo and electronic structure calculations to be represented.

Key Dates

Abstract Submission for contributed talk deadline: 28th May 2022

Registration for workshop deadline: 25th June 2022

The meeting will be held in the stunning scenic surroundings of Cumberland Lodge, one of the Royal Houses in The Great Park at Windsor, built in 1650. It is envisaged around 30 scientists will participate (reduced from usual size to minimise Covid risks), including as many research students and junior post-docs as possible. In line with the educational mission of the Lodge it is an important aim of the workshop to create an informal environment where researchers with different levels of experience can freely discuss their work with one another.

While the full board and accommodation at the Lodge is heavily subsidised by our sponsored funding we do ask for a small contribution of no more than 150GBP from all participants to help cover the overall costs (payable at the STFC's secure CVENT site to be setup) .
