Autumn school on Clocks, Cavities and Fundamental Physics - 15-20 September 2019
The iqClock Quantum Flagship consortium is pleased to announce the upcoming Autumn School on “Clocks, Cavities, and Fundamental Physics”, which will take place at the Institute of Physics, Nicolaus Copernicus University in Toruń, Poland, 15-20 September 2019.
The school welcomes students and postdocs from all over the world, and will focus on experiments and concepts that lie on the border of future optical atomic clocks, fundamental physics table-top experiments, and cosmology. Topics covered by the school include
Registration for the school is open until August 15, acceptance is on a rolling basis. The fee is EUR 200 and covers coffee breaks, lunches and the social program. Convenient accommodation can be booked through the conference secretary. Many choices for dinner are available at restaurants in downtown Toruń.
