We are pleased to announce the 2012 CoQuS Summer School at the University of Vienna, devoted to the interplay between quantum mechanics and gravitation! This year’s edition will be focused on four series of lectures held by international experts on both theoretical and experimental aspects of gravitational and quantum physics:
· Carlo Rovelli (Marseille, FR) giving an introduction to quantum gravity for quantum physicists
· Philippe Bouyer (Bordeaux, FR) , on experimental gravitation and geophysics with matter-wave sensors
· Michele Heurs (Hannover, DE), on gravitational wave detection and quantum control
· Ulf Leonhardt (St. Andrews, UK), on gravity analogues in quantum systems
The summer school is open to interested advanced undergraduates, graduates and junior post-docs with a good background in quantum mechanics. No extensive background in gravitational physics is required, since this school aims to give an introduction to topics in gravitational physics to quantum physicists. Each series of lecture will consists of about 4 x 2 hours lectures. Participants are encouraged to present and discuss their own research during dedicated poster sessions. The registration fee for the summer school is 170 EUR.
