International ICTP school "Complex quantum systems out of equilibrium in many-body physics and beyond"

May 27-31, 2019, Yerevan, Armenia

The school will consist of introductory lectures aimed at graduate students, postdocs, and junior researchers. Topics include – far from equilibrium physics, many-body coherent dynamics, Anderson and many-body localization, and quantum information processing from many-body physics prospective. Participants are encouraged to present short talks on their research. The best presentation will be awarded by our media partner Entropy ( ); see below.

This is the first part of a two-week ICTP external activity; please see here.It is organized in cooperation with Alikhanyan National Science Laboratory (Yerevan Physics Institute), and will be followed by an international conference on similar subjects. It will take place in the Balian hall of Yerevan State University, Armenia (the main building, 4th floor).

If you would like to apply, please send an e-mail to Grants are available to support participation of regional students.
