The workshop aims at reviewing the state-of-the-art in non-equilibrium systems affected by (quantum) fluctuations and decoherence mechanisms bringing together scholars of international calibre active in diverse research communities, such as condensed matter, linear and non-linear optics, cold atoms and quantum information.

The workshop aims at reviewing the state-of-the-art and propose developments in the theoretical description and experimental control of decoherence and fluctuations in an ample set of physical contexts. One of the aims of the workshop is to identify similarities and differences between decoherence in model systems, such as optomechanical cavities and open quantum systems, and non-equilibrium phenomena in complex materials.
The goal is to set the roadmap to develop a universal view on how decoherence processes and quantum fluctuations govern the non-equilibrium dynamics in different systems.
