The Conference on Quantum gases, fundamental interactions and cosmology- Third Edition (QFC 2022) will be held in Pisa from 26 to 28 October 2022.
After QFC2017 and QFC2019 (see the menu on the left for infos), the Conference will be in its third edition of a series of appointments to be held each second year.
Aim of the conference is to bring together scientists in both experimental and theoretical physics from the fields of ultracold quantum gases, fundamental interactions, and cosmology, with the desire of sharing and brainstorming on challenging open common problems, which can be zoomed in and out via a cross-disciplinary approach.
The mutual frontiers among these three apparently separated disciplines have been recently blossoming with new innovative, cutting edge research. To the well-established connections between cosmology and high-energy physics, current bright examples are the research activities in analogue gravity and superfluid analogies of cosmological phenomena, and of quantum simulations of lattice gauge theories using ultracold atoms in optical lattices. We intend to use this momentum and opportunities to establish strong collaborations among participants and leading groups to open new pathways leading to breakthrough results, in this spirit, keynote speakers of the first and second editions have been invited to join the Scientific Advisory Board.
The QFC2022 edition will deal with three broad interdisciplinary areas:
T1. Equations of state of compact objects
T2. Tests of General relativity
T3. Quantum analog simulators for fundamental interactions and cosmology
Each of these area of research will be discussed from the three perspectives of Quantum gases (Q), Fundamental interactions (F) and Cosmology (C).
QFC2022 will be in presence. Given the spirit of the Conference, we indeed preferred to move to 2022 the edition due in 2021, to have better chances to remain in presence. We also know that we are living in the pandemic, which has taught most important lessons about priorities to those open to learn. One of them is about the capacity of planning with clear mind on priorities and, at the same time, of living the moment in full. Please periodically check on the left menu about the updates on the current rules to enter Italy and attending an event of QFC type.
In QFC meetings science and arts are intertwinned, given that they share experimentation, creativity, and the use of very dense forms of symbolic languages, to produce beauty, inspire, and engage. Pisa is a town of science and arts. We are working at the cultural and social program of the QFC2022 edition, which you can discover at the due time on the left menu.
We look forward to meeting you at QFC2022!
