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:

Nonequilibrium and Thermalization
From Few-Body to Many-Body Physics
Scale invariant systems and quantum critical transport

Invited speakers: B. Anderson (Tucson), D. Blume (Pullmann), E. Braaten (Columbus), E. Demler (Cambridge), S. Diehl (Dresden), G. Dvali (Munich), T. Gasenzer (Heidelberg), R. Grimm (Innsbruck), S. Jochim (Heidelberg), C. Kollath (Bonn), E. Kuhnle (Heidelberg), D.J. Lee (Raleigh), Y. Nishida (Tokyo), T. Schäfer (Raleigh), J. Schmiedmayer (Vienna), A. Schwenk (Darmstadt), D.T. Son (Chicago), J. Thomas (Raleigh), F. Werner (Paris), U.-J. Wiese (Bern), N. Zinner (Aarhus), M. Zwierlein (Cambridge).

Our main goal is to provide a platform for the discussion of new developments in this exciting interdisciplinary area of research and foster the scientific exchange between the cold atom, quantum field theory, and many-body communities. The seminar will also give young scientists the opportunity to learn the status of research and open problems in this vibrant field. The program consists of invited talks as well as a poster session. The Wilhelm und Else Heraeus-Stiftung covers the local costs for all accepted participants.
