QTD2021 is planned to take place in Barcelona, likely in late spring 2021.
QTD2022 is planned to take place in Belfast, likely in summer 2022.
Updates will be posted here.
Lake Como School on "Thermodynamics of quantum systems and processes"
Aug. 31, 2020 - Sept. 4, 2020 , Como, Italy
The goal of this school is to provide a broad yet technical overview of the emerging field of thermodynamics of quantum systems and processes, with a series of lectures given by leading experts in the field. The school is mainly addressed to PhD students, advanced master students and postdocs, and aims to train a new generation of researchers in a field that, in light of its emerging character, sees a shortage of specialized scientists.
"Quantum thermoelectrics and heat currents at the nanoscale" minicoloquium at the CMD2020GEFES
Aug. 31, 2020 - Sept. 4, 2020 , Madrid, Spain
The minicoloquium is enclosed in the "CMD2020GEFES Condensed Matter in Madrid" conference combining the biennial meetings of the Condensed Matter Divisions of the EPS and of the RSEF. It will provide an excellent opportunity for bringing together theoreticians and experimentalists from different fields such as molecular electronics, quantum dots and metallic nanocontacts, all working under the common umbrella of thermal conductance and thermoelectricity. Abstract submission is open.
Quantum Thermodynamics Conference (QTD2020) in Barcelona
April 20, 2020 - April 24, 2020 , Barcelona
The 2020 Conference on Quantum Thermodynamics will take place in Barcelona, 20-24 April.
Please remember that the deadline for abstract submission is 20 December 2019.
Registration is now open.
Please also check the important information and deadlines in the conference webpage, http://qtd2020.icfo.eu/

The Center for Theoretical Physics of Complex Systems (PCS) of the Institute for Basic Science (IBS) is organising an international workshop on Open Quantum Dynamics and Thermodynamics (March 30 - April 3, 2020) in Daejeon, South Korea.
- Strong coupling and non-Markovian (thermo-)dynamics
- Quantum machines
- Many-body open systems
- Driven open systems
- Fluctuation theorems
Registration for participation is open until Jan. 5, 2020.
Quarantine Thermo Seminar Series
March 1, 2020 - Jan. 1, 2021 , Online
My group in Dublin is hosting a series of international seminars (Quarantine Thermo) which are streamed live on YouTube live (with recordings for those who cannot make the live broadcast). So far the standard of talks has been excellent and well received by those who are participating. The news of the series has mainly been spread by social media and in case you are (understandably) avoiding it - here is link to the mail-list: https://groups.google.com/d/forum/quarantinethermo/join
QQQ Workshop on 'Quantum open systems, Quantum thermodynamics and Quantum probability
Feb. 18, 2020 - Feb. 21, 2020 , Milan, Italy
The conference will bring together leading experts as well as younger scientists working on topics in fundamental quantum physics which fall under the catchwords quantum open systems, quantum thermodynamics and quantum probability.
There is no participation fee, but attendance is reserved to a restricted number of registered participants due to limited capacity of the lecture room.
For further information about the seminar (including the list of speakers) and registration, visit the website.
Anonymous survey about gender equality
Jan. 1, 2020 - Feb. 28, 2020 , Everywhere!
Dear colleagues from the Quantum Thermo community,
Please find below the link to a survey made by the Gender Equality working group of the Quantum Flagship to gather information and comments about gender equality. It is ANONYMOUS, it takes 5 minutes to answer.
The more data we collect, the most adequate changes we will be able to propose! We thank you in advance for participating, it is very important!
