This conference will address recent theoretical and experimental developments in quantum measurement, underscoring common themes from the perspectives of foundations of quantum mechanics, quantum information processing, quantum optics, condensed matter physics and metrology.

Rooted in the early history of quantum mechanics, the field of Quantum Measurement has evolved from a purely mathematical formulation to an active research topic, embedded in a broad spectrum of subfields, ranging from quantum optics to condensed matter physics. It involves a variety of techniques, including quantum limited, fast, non-invasive measurements. As a versatile tool in an advanced quantum toolbox, quantum measurements could be empowered for the design of novel protocols, including active and passive error correction codes, quantum feedback control, precision measurements, quantum state discrimination, quantum metrology, quantum simulations and more.
In this context of diversified research, this meeting will bring together expert theorists and experimentalists, employing different facets of quantum measurement, with the goal of identifying common themes, and cross-fertilizing with new ideas.

A Poster Session will also be organized, and interested candidates are invited to upload a short abstract of their proposed posters during the online application process (max. half page, in pdf format).
Poster presentation is not mandatory, however participants are encouraged to present their results.
