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.

College on Energy Transport and Energy Conversion in the Quantum Regime
Aug. 12, 2019 - April 30, 2019 , Trieste, italy
The activity consists of a 2-weeks school followed by a workshop. A limited number of grants are available to support the attendance of selected participants, with priority given to participants from developing countries. There is no registration fee.
During the workshop, alongside the invited talks, there are a few slots for contributed oral presentations and we will ask some selected participants to present a talk rather than a poster.
Registration deadline: 1st May 2019
Frontiers of Quantum and Mesoscopic Thermodynamics
July 14, 2019 - July 20, 2019 , Prague, Czech Republic
FQMT’19 is the next event of the series of the previous, successful Prague conferences "Frontiers of Quantum and Mesoscopic Thermodynamics".
The conference is focused on Non-equilibrium phenomena
mainly in mesoscopic and biological systems, cold atoms and molecules.
2019 Quantum Thermodynamics Conference - Finland
June 23, 2019 - June 28, 2019 , Espoo, Finland
This is the annual conference following those in Santa Barbara (2018), Oxford (2017), Erice (2016), Porquerolles (2015), Mallorca (2015), and Berlin (2014). As in every conference in the series, a small selection of invited talks and tutorials have been determined, and we welcome your contributions to the event in order to make it a success.
The conference website can be accessed at https://qtd2019.aalto.fi/ where you will find an abstract submission webpage ending 15 February 2019.
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.
Nanoscale and Microscale Heat Transfer VI - workshop
Dec. 2, 2018 - Dec. 7, 2018 , Levi, Lapland, Finland
The workshop will present the state-of-the-art and the modern trends of nanoscale and microscale heat/energy transfer. It will focus on phenomena at short length and time scales, where the laws of physics used in classical heat transfer are no longer valid. Heat conduction and energy transport, driven by the mesoscopic transport of electrons and phonons and thermal radiation at sub-wavelength scale are the typical topics tackled in the seminar as well as non-equilibrium and quantum effects.
684. WE-Heraeus-Seminar "Advances in open systems and fundamental tests of quantum mechanics"
Dec. 2, 2018 - Dec. 5, 2018 , Bad Honnef, Germany
This seminar aims at reporting about recent results in the foundations of open quantum systems and its connection with the most advanced experiments testing the basic features of quantum mechanics, from the microscopic to the macroscopic regime. Participants are expected to cover their travel costs, the generous support of the Wilhelm and Else Heraeus Foundation will support local costs, including accommodations and meals for all participants.
Deadline for application: September 28, 2018.
