We are delighted to announce the SPICE-Workshop on “Quantum Thermodynamics and Transport» which will be held from the 8th to the 11th of May 2018 at the Johannes Gutenberg University, Mainz.Picture1.png

The purpose of this conference is to bring together researchers from the communities of condensed matter, statistical physics, quantum optics and atomic physics with the aim of discussing quantum effects on transport and thermodynamics. The following topics will be covered: quantum heat and work, time-dependent drivings, thermoelectrics, quantum fluctuations, coherence and entanglement. The meeting will contribute to the understanding of fundamental properties of quantum matter out of equilibrium as well as to the development of novel nanodevices.


This SPICE workshop will take place at the Mainz Institute of Theoretical Physics venue, located at the Johannes Gutenberg University.

Applications to participate in the workshop must be made online before the 15th of February 2018 (http://www.spice.uni-mainz.de/quantum-thermodynamics-2018/). We will inform the applicants of acceptance in March 2018. The participation fee for non-speakers is 200 euros (includes lodging).
