CAMFI 2017

When: Tuesday, September 19 to Wednesday, September 20, 2017
Where: The CP³ meeting room

This workshop will once again bring together cold atoms experts and quantum field theorists working on fundamental interactions. We will discuss new exciting avenues ranging from new phases of matter stemming from quantum field theories in different space-time dimensions to the construction of cold atoms systems mimicking certain aspects of fundamental interactions, or last but not the least whether it is possible to use cold atoms for ab-initio simulations of strongly coupled theories.

Participation to the workshop is by invitation only.
