Entropy Special issue: Fluctuation Relations and Nonequilibrium Thermodynamics
Oct. 1, 2018 - Dec. 31, 2019 , Entropy

The areas covered in this Special Issue include but are not restricted to: *) Fluctuation relations in classical stochastic thermodynamics *) Definitions of work, heat, and entropy and related fluctuation theorems in quantum systems *) Quantum engines and refrigerators *) Resource theory of quantum thermodynamics *) Role of quantum correlations and coherence in quantum thermodynamics Dr. Gabriele De Chiara Guest Editor

Entropy Special Issue: Energy, Entropy and Information in Nano- and Quantum-Electronics
June 20, 2019 - March 31, 2020 , Entropy

Due to their high degree of control, small electronic systems provide ideal candidates to investigate thermodynamics on the nanoscale. In particular, all ingredients required to investigate heat and energy transport, as well as the thermodynamics of information, are available. This Special Issue aims at providing a focus on modern developments in the highly exciting topics related to energy, entropy, and information in nano- and quantum-electronics.

Frontiers of Quantum Thermodynamics
Sept. 18, 2019 - Sept. 20, 2019 , Exeter

We are pleased to announce the upcoming workshop "Frontiers of Quantum Thermodynamics", which will take place on the 18th–20th September 2019 in Exeter & the English Riviera, UK. This interdisciplinary workshop will bring together ca. 30-40 experts in stochastic thermodynamics, open quantum systems, information thermodynamics, strongly correlated systems, and quantum optics, in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.

Doctoral student in Nanoscale Quantum Thermodynamics
Sept. 1, 2019 , Physics Department, Lund University

The doctoral student is expected to perform theoretical work in quantum thermodynamics, focusing on electronic properties of nanosystems. It will consist of developing theoretical models for and describing transport and fluctuations of energy and charge in different nanosystems. The work will consist of both analytical calculations and numerical simulations, employing tools such as scattering theory, quantum master equations and different path integral approaches.
