Scope of the conference

Following the first edition in 2015, the goal of the workshop is to follow up visions and opportunities in Atomtronics: Atomic quantum matter, like Bose-Einstein condensates, manipulated in electric, magnetic, or optical circuits of very different spatial shapes and intensity. We intend to bring together experimentalists and theorists active in the field. Conceptual and applicative aspects of atomic circuits for diverse exploitations will be covered, both to extend the scope of the existing atom-based quantum devices and to devise platforms for new routes to quantum technology (quantum information, quantum simulation, quantum metrology, etc.)


The Benasque workshop will offer two-three seminars per day from the invited speakers. Working groups, self-organized and chaired discussions are a part of the Benasque Center working mode and will be encouraged. Offices/desk space will be available for the participants upon request. A poster session will be also organized.


The workshop will be mainly funded with the conference fees (see the section Registration fee informations below). Services included are:

- Round bus trip on the first and the last day from Benasque to the Barcelona airport.
(NOTE: Round bus trip on the May 7 and the May 20 from Benasque to the Barcelona airport)
- A reception party the day one of the workshop, coffee breaks.
- Technical and logistic assistance.
