17th Symposium on Topological Quantum Information: Topological Quantum Matter in Cold-Atom Setups

16th-17th April 2015, Max Planck Institute for Quantum Optics, Garching.

The main focus of this edition of the Symposia on Topological Quantum Information will be the realization of topological phases of matter in cold-atom setups. The Symposium will be mainly aimed to PhD students and postdocs working in this field.

We are planning to have two lectures, some senior research seminars and several slots for shorter talks held by participants. Everybody is welcome; participation is free of charge.

The application deadline is the 30th of January 2015.
