We had been hoping to be able to hold the conference on the originally scheduled period in October 2021 but given the pandemic situation we have decided to postpone the conference period to October 2022.

Format and Program description

With this aim and moved by the above motivations, we propose a three-day schedule with two sessions  per day along the following format.

A. Session x-M (Day x=1, 2, 3 – Morning, 8.30-13.00) is devoted to three one hour broad-interest key-note speech providing a common background framework to all participants, one keynote for each of the three fields. The keynote speeches are also meant to select and critically discuss key open problems that require a trans-disciplinary approaches to produce significant advances:

- Frontiers in quantum gases

- Frontiers in the physics of fundamental interactions

- Frontiers in cosmology

The morning session will end up with a general all-to-all discussion led by the chair-person and animated by the key-note speakers and lasting about one hour-one hour and a half.


B. Session x-A (Day x=1, 2, 3 – Afternoon, 15.00-17.30) is devoted to half-an-hour research talks selected among applicants to an open announcement. The talks are meant to be related to specific topics, including:

  1. Higgs mode, SUSY, Dark matter, Extra dimensions, also via cold-atoms physics
  2. General relativity tests and precision measurements
  3. Black holes and Hawking radiation, also in superfluid analogues
  4. Symmetry tests: matter/antimatter and CP
  5. AdS-CFT correspondence
  6. QCD and BECs. Quarks, Hadrons, and Efimov states
  7. Quantum simulators for QED and QCD, also with cold atoms
  8. Magnetic monopoles
  9. Majorana fermions
  10. Topological phases

Each day of the Conference (but the last one) will be closed by a final keynote speech.

One poster session can be planned, depending on the applications. The Conference will benefit from a rich social program. The detailed scientific and social program will be announced within May 2019.
