General information

The Young Atom Optician conference is aimed at young researchers – mostly PhD students – in the field of quantum optics, quantum information, atomic and molecular physics. We welcome both experimental and theoretical contributions. Like in previous years we would like to insure room for personal discussions and therefore have to limit the number of participants to about 100. All participants are expected to present their current work in a talk or poster.


Conference fee

We offer two options: 250 Euros with or 180 Euros without accommodation.  Depending on your choice the conference fee includes housing from Sunday to Friday in a single bedroom in the student housing on the ENS campus in Paris. Coffee breaks, social events and conference dinner are included in both options. The conference fee does not include travel expenses or other meals than those mentioned before. The conference fee is due with your final inscription after your abstract has been accepted.
