Aim of workshop

The aim of the workshop is to report on the recent theoretical and experimental results on the macroscopic quantum coherence of macroscopic systems. Particular attention will be given to the coherence effects in Josephson systems. The correlation with other atomic and molecular systems, exhibiting a macroscopic quantum coherence behaviour, is also discussed. Such proposals will be considered for implementation of various schemes for coherent information processing and quantum computation.



Participants are welcome to submit their recent results relative to the workshop topics.

The participation is limited to about 150 attendants.

 The Registration Fee is  Euro 300 , it includes abstract booklet, proceedings, and social event. A special reduced fee for Ph.D. students is Euro 160. The registration form must be sent to the Secretariat within April 20, 2002.
