FQMT’17 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 dynamics,
  • Quantum thermodynamics,
  • Foundations of quantum physics,
  • Mesoscopic and biological systems,
  • Quantum optics, cold atoms and molecules.

The conference will address non-equilibrium statistical physics, quantum many body physics, foundations of quantum physics and quantum thermodynamics. The systems considered will be mainly on the order of mesoscopic (nanoscale) size, and include those of both natural and artificial origin. The main goal of the conference is to contribute to a better understanding of the behaviour of mesoscopic systems, and to provide insight into the problems of the foundations, relying on the theoretical and experimental methods of condensed matter physics and quantum optics. Special attention will be given to non-equilibrium quantum systems, physics of quantum information and manifestation of quantum effects in biological systems, in terms of both theory and experiment. Subjects from astrophysics, gravitation or cosmology related to the above scope will also be included.

The aim of FQMT’17 is to create a bridge between the fields of non-equilibrium statistical physics, quantum many body physics, foundations of quantum physics, quantum thermodynamics, quantum optics, physics of quantum information, astrophysics, condensed matter physics, physics of mesoscopic systems, chemical physics and biophysics.

The conference program includes two evening public lectures accompanied by concerts of classical music. The lectures will be given by Anton Zeilinger (From quantum puzzles to quantum information technology) and John Pendry (Metamaterials and the science of invisibility).

You can find further information on the conference website. The programs of the concerts are available here.
