The Nanoscale Quantum Optics (NQO) Workshop in Prague will be the occasion to present and discuss the recent progress in NQO of all working groups (WGs). The scope is also to discuss future opportunities for international cooperation like, e.g., the Quantum Technology Flagship, and propositions for the new Framework Programme (FP9). The program consists of four scientific sessions (one for each WG) and three additional sessions: one on Gender Balance, one on COST Actions related to NQO and one on industry, followed by a panel discussion. In addition, there will be two poster sessions with finger food in the evening.

The NQO Workshop will cover all topics of the COST Action:
– Generation, detection, storage, manipulation of quantum states of light at the nanoscale
– Nonlinearities and ultrafast processes in nanostructured media
– Quantum coherence at the nanoscale
– Cooperative effects, correlations and mani-body physics tailored by strongly confined optical fields
Companies are welcome to participate and exhibit products related to nanoscale quantum optics.
Further infomation will follow.
