The Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP, Trieste, Italy) in collaboration with Centro Atómico Bariloche (CAB, Argentina) is organizing a one week School followed by a week Workshop on Driven Quantum Systems to be held at San Carlos de Bariloche (Argentina) from 21st November to 2nd December 2016.

The field of driven quantum systems has attracted a great deal of attention in recent years, fueled by the impressive experimental advances achieved in the design and manipulation of quantum systems of very different nature: cold atoms, quantum dots in semiconductors, graphene, topological insulators, superconducting qubits, optical cavities, etc. Interest in these systems ranges from the need to deepen our understanding of the response (dynamics) of single and many-body systems to periodic or pulsed external fields, to the design of new states of matter with interesting topological properties, or the precise control of multi-qubit systems for quantum computation. The driven dynamics of quantum systems has raised important questions that gathered efforts from communities located on the interface of quantum optics, condensed matter, many-body physics and statistical mechanics.

Primary goal of the activities will be to increase the level of communication and collaboration between researchers from different backgrounds through tutorials and informal discussions as well as invited presentations. The activities will highlight recent experimental and theoretical results at the forefront of international research, including, but not limited to, the following topics:

- Cold atoms
- Driven topological insulators and graphene
- Irradiated superconductors
- Quantum optics
- Adiabatic quantum computing. Quantum memories
- Quantum control of driven solid state qubits

A limited number of grants are available to support the attendance of selected participants working in the regional latin-american countries.

NEW DEADLINE FOR APPLICATIONS:  Sunday, 14th August 2016.

Workshop invited participants will be requested to pay a registration fee (more information at above local CAB website).
