Quantum Thermodynamics and Transport

Mainz, Germany: May 8th - 11th 2018

The purpose of this conference is to bring together researchers from the communities of condensed matter, statistical physics, quantum optics and atomic physics with the aim of discussing quantum effects on transport and thermodynamics. The following topics will be covered: quantum heat and work, time-dependent drivings, thermoelectrics, quantum fluctuations, coherence and entanglement. The meeting will contribute to the understanding of fundamental properties of quantum matter out of equilibrium as well as to the development of novel nanodevices.
