The workshop will focus on new developments in the understanding of quantum thermodynamics in non-equilibrium systems, with emphasis on the meso- and nanoscopic scale. Special attention will go to possible implementations of proof-of-principle experiments of systems working in the quantum regime.
We intend to bring together experts and younger researchers in the field of non-equilibrium quantum thermodynamics so as to stimulate exchange and discussions about the newest topics in the field. Therefore, besides the invited talks, we plan slots for contributed talks, a poster session and time for discussion. We hope the conference will lead to new collaborations, and that it will contribute to the progress of the field through the interchange of information and new ideas.

Due to the current situation caused by the COVID-19 outbreak, the conference will, in any event, also be accessible online. We will update the webpage soon, to specify under which form exactly. In any case, to get access to the online event, you will have to sign up for the conference.

There are a number of places available at a local daycare near the conference site. If you're interested, please send us an email with the name and age of the child, and what days you'd like to reserve the daycare for. Approximate prices are 42 € per day, or 122 € for the entire conference period (Tue-Fri). Upon request we can partially support this service.
