The program has two types of lectures. Overview invited lectures cover a somewhat broader area or a few related topics (30 minutes), while shorter invited lectures (20 minutes) deal with promising progress in developing and understanding particular topics or techniques related to the scope of the conference. Non-invited (contributed) papers will be presented and discussed only in the poster session. Due to the shortage of time for invited lectures, the scientific committee will also invite several special invited poster contributions, which may be discussed in a related poster session "meeting".
Special and evening lectures:
- Claude Cohen-Tannoudji (École Normale Supérieure, Paris)
- Martin Rees (Trinity College, University of Cambridge)
Round table:After lectures of introduction, a round table discussion will be probably held on Saturday, which will serve as a conference review and summary.
