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!

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.

QALYPSO24 (Summer School)
Sept. 2, 2024 - Sept. 6, 2024 , Malta

QALYPSO Summer School 2024: Precision in Quantum Information & Computation Qalypso is a 5 day Summer School being held in the beautiful Maltese archipelago including a crash course and hackathon on quantum computing in collaboration with quantum industry.

Quantum Thermodynamics Meets Quantum Computation
Oct. 8, 2024 - Oct. 10, 2024 , Scuola Normale Superiore, Pisa, Italy

We are excited to announce our new workshop entitled "Quantum Thermodynamics meets Quantum Computation", which aims to bring together an international group of scientists from the quantum physics community to discuss recent advances at the nexus of these two burgeoning fields. Relevant topics include: fundamentals of quantum thermodynamics, dynamics of information, simulating thermal systems with quantum computers, and quantum batteries. Abstract submissions are open until Jul 19 2024.

Quantum Morocco
Oct. 14, 2024 - Oct. 25, 2024 , Ifrane, Morocco

Join us at Quantum Morocco 2024, held from October 14-25 at Al Akhawayn University in Ifrane, Morocco. The conference will focus into all things quantum. Sponsored by NATO's Science for Peace and Security Programme, it builds on the success of its inaugural edition. Don't miss this unique opportunity to explore the cutting-edge intersection of quantum science and computing. More details and updates are available on

PhD positions available within the QUantum Theory group at University od Palermo
July 10, 2024 , Quantum Theory group, Department of Physics and Chemistry, University of Palermo

PhD positions available to work within the Quantum Theory group ( at the Department of Physics and Chemistry, University of Palermo. The candidate will investigate topics including the thermodynamic cost of quantum computing, and the development of a thermodynamic-based framework for the assessment of fundamental physics, with possible academia-industry partnerships. Interested candidates should get in touch as soon as possible by writing at the address

Postdoc position - Nonequilibrium statistical physics in quantum materials
May 29, 2024 , Chalmers University of Technology, Gothenburg, Sweden

We invite applications for a postdoctoral research position in nonequilibrium statistical physics and condensed matter theory within Matthias Geilhufe's group at Chalmers University of Technology. Our research focuses on quantum materials, exploring symmetry, topology, non-equilibrium dynamics, and stochastic processes. This opportunity is part of a broader research initiative on investigating material excitations far from equilibrium within the emerging field of ultrafast thermodynamics.

Doctoral student in Physics within the discipline of experimental nanothermodynamics
May 28, 2024 - June 14, 2024 , Department of Physics, Lund University, Sweden

This specific position focuses on conducting experimental investigations of heat fluctuations in nanoscale heat engines as a means toward demonstrating an energetic advantage of quantum systems over their classical counterparts, and further providing proof-of-concept groundwork for heat-management schemes in quantum technologies where waste heat generated during quantum operations could be converted into useful electrical energy.

PhD position on quantum thermodynamics and quantum control
April 25, 2024 , Dijon, France

We are looking for a PhD student to work at the intersection between quantum thermodynamics and quantum control. Central questions will envolve trade-off between energetic costs and performances of quantum operations in terms of precision, velocity, and robustness, as well as the developpment of optimal quantum control protocols. More details at

Doctoral student in theory for quantum thermodynamics in nanosystems
April 9, 2024 - April 30, 2024 , Physics department, Lund university, Sweden

The successful applicant will work broadly in theoretical quantum thermodynamics, with transport, fluctuations and correlations of energy and charge at the nanoscale, in open quantum systems. Measurement and control of such quantum systems is of particular interest. Cooperation with theoretical and experimental colleagues in the field is an important part of the position. The work will be performed in the research group led by Peter Samuelsson.
