The IOP run a Topical Research Meeting once a year and the 2014 event will be held in Nottingham, UK, from 16 to 18 December.
This meeting will cover all aspects of hybrid quantum systems involving atoms, light and matter. It will link theory to experiment, ranging from fundamental physics to the development of new quantum device concepts and technologies. The invited speakers are leading researchers in hybrid quantum systems.
To encourage and facilitate the participation of early-career researchers and PhD students, there will be short contributed talks, a poster session and industry engagement. There will also be a discussion and summary session to explore quantum technologies emerging from the fusion of atoms, light and matter, and identify ways to maximise the benefits from recent UK investment in such technologies.
EPS members can register for the conference at the reduced IOP member rates. Information regarding the conference can be found at http://quantumsystems.iopconfs.org/home.
