Royal Holloway will be hosting an on the 21st and 22nd of October, 2011. This event is intended to stimulate discussions between theorists and experimentalists on nonequilibrium (quantum) dynamics in low-dimensional cold atomic gases, by bringing together at a round table a limited number of invited participants. Topics we hope to cover in the meeting include: (i) quantum quenches in low-D systems and thermalization; (ii) impurities and other local perturbations; and (iii) fermion-boson mixtures and spinor condensates.
The meeting is centered around a small number of invited overview talks, which are intended to discuss the state of the art in the field and highlight interesting issues and open questions. An integral part of the workshop will be extended organised discussion sessions, where topics of current interest are debated and future lines of research are identified. The key objective of the meeting is to generate lively and active discussions.
