International ICTP conference on “Complex quantum systems out of equilibrium in many-body physics and beyond”

3 - 7 June, 2019, Yerevan, Armenia

The unifying theme of this conference is a better understanding of far from equilibrium quantum complex systems. Main topics include - far from equilibrium physics, many-body coherent dynamics, Anderson and many-body localization, quantum information processing, quantum gases, superconductivity and superconducting qubits, topological states of matter, integrable systems, low-dimensional physics, disordered systems, quantum thermodynamics, and driven as well as driven-dissipative dynamics.

This is the first part of a two-week ICTP external activity; please see here. It will take place in the conference center of Yerevan State University, Armenia The school is locally organized by a group of scientists from Alikhanyan National Science Laboratory (Yerevan Physics Institute). Before the conference there will be an international school on similar subjects.
