School on Emergent Phenomena in Non-Equilibrium Quantum Many-Body Systems

June 26 – July 7, 2023

São Paulo, Brazil



The design of quantum many-body states which elude conventional thermodynamics has become a reality in a number of experimental platforms operating in the far-from-equilibrium regime. This school will gather key experts working on non-equilibrium dynamics ranging from driven open systems to AMO platforms, encompassing interdisciplinary boundaries with high energy physics.

The goal of the school is to provide education both at the basic and advanced level on mainstream themes in current research on non-equilibrium quantum many body systems: (1) dissipative engineering of quantum correlated states at the interface of AMO and solid state; (2) perspectives on theoretical progress in quantum many body information to advance the field beyond the noisy intermediate scale quantum (NISQ) device age; (3) modern ultracold atoms and quantum optics simulators; (4) connections from condensed matter and high energy physics (in particular holography) in the study of scrambling dynamics of quantum information. Our aim is to provide a strong starting package to students interested in taking their first steps in the blossoming research area of quantum many-body dynamics.

There is no registration fee and limited funds are available for travel and local expenses.
