The School aims at bringing together new ideas, novel results, problems and prospects of modern condensed matter physics with special focus on quantum technologies. The latter is new and advanced area of physics and engineering, based on the use some of the phenomena in quantum mechanics, such as quantum entanglement, quantum superposition and quantum tunneling and interference eﬀects for practical applications such as quantum computing, quantum sensing, quantum cryptography, high precision quantum metrology and quantum imaging.
This will be done by presenting series of lectures for the broad auditorium of young researchers (e.g. Master and PhD students, young postdocs and research associates), as well as senior scientists from developing countries working on diﬀerent areas of condensed matter physics, material science, and statistical and chemical physics. Invited lecturers will be world-wide well-known experts on the above topics.
The lectures to be presented will be focused on most advanced topics of condensed matter physics which are relevant to novel materials for energy conversion, quantum information and medical applications. The goal of the lectures will be twofold, educational and expert-level discussions of novel results. The latter will be done both during the panel lectures and informal seminars.
