QTD2024: Quantum Thermodynamics Conference 2024
Aug. 5, 2024 - Aug. 9, 2024 , University of Maryland, College Park, USA (in person + hybrid)

We are pleased to announce that a north American team led by Luis Pedro García-Pintos at LANL, has agreed to organise QTD2024 at the University of Maryland. The dates are now fixed to 5-9 August 2024 (i.e. NOT in July). The event will be in person with a hybrid option. Please put the dates in your diary. The conference webpage is here: Look out for details of when/how to submit contributions, which will be posted here.

Emergence of Classicality: New Perspectives on Measurements in Quantum Theory
July 15, 2024 - July 19, 2024 , Trinity College Dublin, Ireland

Abstract submission (posters & talks) is now open for our conference: Emergence of Classicality 2024. Submit here: We will discuss deep questions around quantum measurements, with talks on quantum information, paradoxes, closed system-environment interaction, and experimental quantum thermodynamics. Invited speakers: Časlav Brukner Nicole Yunger Halpern Lina Jansson Jarosław Korbicz V. Vilasini Howard Wiseman (and more!) See you in Dublin!

Frontiers in Non-equilibrium Physics 2024
July 1, 2024 - Aug. 2, 2024 , Yukawa Institute for Theoretical Physics, Kyoto University, Japan

We are organizing a long-term workshop focusing on non-equilibrium physics. The second and third weeks will be dedicated to topics related to stochastic and quantum thermodynamics. The fourth week will focus on active matter, non-reciprocal transitions, and the Mpemba effect. The fifth week will concentrate on the jamming and rheology of dense materials. We look forward to your participation!

Winter school on ultrafast thermodynamics
Feb. 19, 2024 - Feb. 23, 2024 , Chalmers, Gothenburg, Sweden

We're organizing a one-week winter school in condensed matter physics, focusing on ultrafast thermodynamics. This event bridges ultrafast dynamics in quantum materials with nonequilibrium statistical physics. The program is designed for PhD students, advanced Master's students, and PostDocs. Participants will explore cutting-edge theoretical and experimental methods, gaining a comprehensive understanding of this emerging research area.

International Conference on Quantum Energy
Dec. 4, 2023 - Dec. 6, 2023 , Melbourne, Austrlia

The International Conference on Quantum Energy 2023, hosted by CSIRO, is the inaugural event of a biennial convention that focuses on the multifaceted topic of energy in quantum systems. This three-day conference brings a cross-disciplinary perspective on the fundamental understanding and technical engineering of quantum systems for energy harvesting, conversion, storage, and transport processes.

Quantum Energy Initiative 2023
Nov. 20, 2023 - Nov. 24, 2023 , Singapore

We are delighted to announce the first workshop of the Quantum Energy Initiative (QEI). The QEI aims to structure a worldwide and interdisciplinary community of experts caring about the physical resource cost of emerging quantum technologies, and willing to develop scientific approaches to estimate and minimize these costs.

Quantum Thermodynamics Down Under 2023
Nov. 7, 2023 - Nov. 10, 2023 , 308 Queen Street, Brisbane, Queensland, Australia

QTDU2023 will bring Australian, Asia-Pacific, and international researchers in quantum thermodynamics together to foster new connections and collaborations. Topics may include: fundamental questions in quantum thermodynamics (QT), benefits and applications of quantum thermal machines, connections between QT and other fields such as quantum information and quantum biology, and incorporating QT in outreach activities. Abstract submissions open until Jun 30 2023.

Quantum Thermodynamics Down Under 2023
Nov. 7, 2023 - Nov. 10, 2023 , Brisbane, Australia

We are excited to announce the inaugural Quantum Thermodynamics Down Under (QTDU) conference! QTDU2023 will be a showcase of quantum thermodynamics research from Australia, the Asia-Pacific and further afield. Topics include (but are not limited to): fundamental questions in quantum thermodynamics; quantum thermal machines; and applications of quantum thermodynamics. Wherever you are in the world, we invite you to attend this 4-day, in-person conference.

Mini colloquium 'Fundamental bounds in nano engines' at the CMD30 + FisMat 2023 conference
Sept. 4, 2023 - Sept. 8, 2023 , Milan

Join us at our upcoming mini colloquium, where we will delve into the fundamental bounds of quantum machines and explore the quantum advantages that enable them to function at their best.

Time in Quantum Theory 2023
Sept. 4, 2023 - Sept. 7, 2023 , Westport, Ireland

Dear all,   We’re thrilled to announce that this year’s Time in Quantum Theory (TiQT) conference.  TiQT 2023 aims to bring together disparate communities, providing a common platform to discuss important questions ranging across many aspects of time in quantum theory including thermodynamic aspects. Please visit for list of invited speakers, submission deadlines, etc. Looking forward to welcoming you in West, Mischa Woods (on behalf of the PC and local organisers)
