Quantum Optics X 5 - 11 September 2021, Toruń, Poland


We have received reports about a scam, which appears to target conferences. Please note that the detail on paying the conference fees are specified at our website, http://quantumoptics.faj.org.pl/?page=fees, and this is the only way we are collecting the payments. Organizers of the Quantum Optics conference do not contact the participants by phone calls. We contact you only via e-mail qoptics@faj.org.pl.

Hybrid form of the conference!

Despite some degree of uncertainty due to the COVID related situation, the organizing committee has decided to organize the conference onsite in Torun as originally planned. Still, we have decided to allow every participant to decide whether she/he is willing to participate in a traditional onsite form or online. The two options will be available, both for the speakers as well as for other participants. The conference will therefore have a hybrid character . We will provide all technical functionalities, so that both online and onsite audiences can interact with each other as much as possible. We will be sending all the details to all the registered participants soon. We look forward to seeing you in Torun!

General info

The Quantum Optics conference is the tenth in the series that have been organized every four years since 1985. It will be held in Toruń (Poland) at the Hotel Bulwar, 5-11 September 2021.

One of its central aims is to bring together researchers from various sub-fields of quantum optics to offer a broad overview of current developments in this exciting domain.

Main topics of Quantum Optics conference include:

● ultracold Fermi and Bose gases
● quantum simulators
● spinor and dipolar gases
● topological states of matter
● quantum nonlocality and Bell inequalities
● precision measurements
● foundations of quantum mechanics
● high precision spectroscopy
● atomic clocks
● quantum communication
● quantum thermodynamics
● quantum computing

In addition to invited talks we also plan some number of contributed talks and a poster session.

Quantum Optics X will also be a satellite meeting of the BEC 2021 conference that will take place in Sant Feliu, Spain, 11-17 September 2021.
