IMPORTANT: On Sunday, 15 May at 18:30 there will be a Welcome reception. All participants are cordially invited to attend.

An ICTP Hybrid Meeting. You can submit your application for participation in presence or online.

This conference will be a venue for bringing together world-leading experts, young researchers, and new-comers to discuss and to tackle modern challenges in mesoscopic superconducting devices.

Mesoscopic superconducting devices open up bright perspectives not only for current and future developments in quantum technologies but also to address fundamental physics. For example, a key for promising applications is utilizing the interplay between superconducting charge transport and energy dissipation in the form of microwave radiation and heat. Superconducting circuits are engineered to serve as bright sources of quantum microwave light and for the phase-coherent transfer of heat. From a different viewpoint, superconducting devices have been recognized as tools to realize, to probe and to control non-locality and topology in charge transport phenomena as well as strong correlations in many-body systems.  

The conference will provide a bridge of shared expertise between communities aiming from different angles at novel superconducting phenomena and quantum technologies.

Topics include:
•    Sources and detection of quantum microwave light
•    Driven dissipative Josephson circuits
•    Many-body physics with novel Josephson devices and material designs
•    Modern Josephson transport and quantum phase slips
•    Heat transfer in superconducting devices
