This workshop brings together theorists and experimentalists to discuss AMO physics from single atoms up to the mesoscale with the focus on the recent developments in understanding the quantum coherence in systems of various complexities. Starting from the accurate description of complex correlations in atoms and molecules and their interaction with optical and x-ray light, we will discuss how AMO Physics interfaces with nanoscience. Particularly, we will emphasize the fundamental role of AMO physics to tackle challenges in the ultracold atoms and molecules, plasmonic systems, structural biology, etc. Our goal is to enable a productive cross fertilization between leading theorists and experimentalists in these areas to identify new approaches to study single atoms and molecules and interface the nano- and mesoscale including large biological molecules and ultracold systems. Discussion will focus on the exploration of both the fundamental aspects and applications.
