Goal of the conference: Bring together scientists from
several regions of the world to learn from each other and to discuss
two of the main current frontiers of research in ultra-cold atoms and
molecules: heteronuclear mixtures, dipolar molecules, and few-body
The chosen topics cover current frontier research in
ultra-cold atoms and molecules. They include the analysis of novel
quantum phases, thermodynamic, and non-equilibrium phenomena which have
direct connection to problems found in condensed matter physics,
astrophysics and nuclear physics. The connections to condensed matter
physics are particularly strong in the case of optical lattices, where
ultra-cold atoms can simulate many known and possibly unknown condensed
matter phenomena with incredible control. In addition, ultra-cold
heteronuclear molecules can reveal completely new phenomena which are
not possible to realize in standard condensed matter systems, due to
the existence of their electric dipolar moments. Lastly, Efimov states
and few-body physics, which are also relevant to nuclear physics, can
be studied in mixtures of ultracold fermions or bosons under well
