DTP 2021 | High-Energy and Nuclear Physics within Quantum Technologies

ECT* - Villa Tambosi

Strada delle Tabarelle, 286
Trento - Italy

In the past few years, noteworthy progress has been achieved in the understanding and control of quantum many-body systems that are relevant to solving models in high-energy, nuclear, and condensed matter physics.

This progress has been to a substantial extent the result of a collaborative effort of different communities. New tools and concepts from quantum information and quantum optics are now supplying new avenues to address open problems in particle, nuclear, and statistical physics, complementing more traditional approaches.

The purpose of this school is to bring together experts and leaders in quantum information and high-energy physics to train a new generation of researchers in the state-of-the-art methods, applications, and open problems in both fields. This school will have an important impact on enhancing synergies and further progress in this fast-developing field. The programme will also have a series of more specialized lectures on the latest developments.
