2024 Winter Conference on Plasma Spectrochemistry
15 Jan 2024 - 21 Jan 2024 • Tucson, United States
Abstract:
The continued growth in popularity of plasma sources for atomization and excitation in atomic spectroscopy and ionization in mass spectrometry and the need to discuss recent developments of these discharges in spectrochemical analysis stimulated the organization of this meeting. The Conference will bring together international scientists experienced in applications, instrumentation, and theory in an informal setting to examine recent progress in the field. Approximately 500 participants from 30 countries are expected to attend.

Active Matter Across Scales and Environments
15 Oct 2024 - 18 Oct 2024 • UC Santa Barbara, United States
Organizer:
UC Santa Barbara, Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics (KITP)
Abstract:
Active matter explores collective phenomena that emerge from energy-consuming components interacting with each other and their environment. Great strides have been made in understanding the surprising behavior of active fluids, from spontaneous flow to flocking to condensation with no attractive interactions, demonstrating the relevance of the active matter paradigm to systems as diverse as collections of living organisms, cell assemblies, the cell interior, and synthetically engineered materials. A recent new direction for the field has been the study and engineering of active solids - elastically coupled networks where active energy input allows for actuation and shape changes not possible in equilibrium. This conference will bring together scientists working across active matter and related disciplines, including hydrodynamic and elastic theories of active matter, living matter, classical and quantum materials far from equilibrium, and animate matter, to study the behavior of a broad range of active solids, from active hydrogels to metamaterials to mechanical structures composed of linked robotic components. It will aim to connect these distinct branches, find overarching principles that span these fields, and identify areas for future breakthroughs.

New Perspectives in Many-body Physics with Quantum Optical Systems
29 Oct 2024 - 01 Nov 2024 • UC Santa Barbara, United States
Organizer:
UC Santa Barbara, Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics (KITP)
Abstract:
There has been an explosion of new experimental platforms to explore and control the quantum interactions between atoms and light. These include dense atomic media either in the form of ordered arrays or disordered ensembles, to nanophotonic or nanophotonics-inspired interfaces, to quantum electrodynamical circuits coupled to superconducting qubits. These new platforms exhibit an additional complexity not found in conventional atom-light interfaces, arising from factors such as the ability to engineer the dispersion relation of light, the reduced system dimensionality, and/or non-perturbative multiple light scattering. This conference will gather a diverse set of researchers together in order to exchange state-of-the art developments and to discuss, identify and pose grand challenges and opportunities for the field in the near future. Experimentalists working in these fields are encouraged to participate and share their perspectives of future experimental capabilities of many-body quantum optical systems. Researchers in related fields (such as Rydberg atom arrays, ultracold molecules, superconducting qubits for quantum computing, etc.) who see opportunities in linking with quantum optics are also welcome to attend. This broad exchange should catalyze important themes for discussion and development in the field.
