ICQNS 2019 : IBS Conference on Quantum Nanoscience
Call For Papers
The Center for Quantum Nanoscience (QNS) presents an International IBS Conference for Quantum Nanoscience (ICQNS2019). The conference will take place in Ewha Womans University (Seoul, South Korea) on September 25 - 27, 2019.
The main topic of the conference is a novel research field at the intersection of quantum and nanoscience. Quantum science studies the quantum mechanical properties of matter and molecular nanoscience focuses on materials at the atomic scale.
ICQNS2019 will bring together experts and young scientists from all around the globe in this exciting research topic

IBS Conference on Quantum Nanoscience presents five different sessions:
Session 1. What is Quantum Nanoscience?
In this session, we will describe a working definition as well as interesting concepts and examples of quantum systems at the nanoscale that enable quantum-coherent functionality.
Session 2. Quantum Sensing with Nanoscale Systems.
Quantum systems can make incredibly sensitive sensors of their environment. At the nanoscale this can be combined with high spatial resolution.
Session 3. Theory Challenges in Quantum Nanoscience.
Quantum Nanoscience has diverse needs for theoretical investigations ranging from modelling with high precision to the investigation and understanding of quantum coherence.
Session 4. Quantum Surface Science at the Nanoscale.
Surfaces of materials offer the opportunity to use scanning probe techniques to measure their properties. This can be combined with atomic-scale manipulation to build structures with atomic-scale precision. Recently it has become possible to perform quantum-coherent manipulation of atoms on surfaces.
Session 5. A Chemical Route to Quantum Nanoscience.
We will explore possible pathways from quantum coherent effects in interesting molecules to the future dream of self-assembled quantum computers.
Authors are kindly invited to submit their abstracts until June 15th. After that the committee will make a decision on all proposals. The number of accepted proposals is limited! The early-bird registration is until June 15th.
