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 physics.
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
