Young Atom Opticians (YAO) Conference 2012

YAO 2012

The eighteenth installment of the YAO (Young Atom Opticians) will take place in Cracow, from the 26th to the 30th of March, 2012. The organization of the YAO 2012 meeting has been undertaken by the doctoral physics students of Jagiellonian University, who are closely tied to atomic physics through their scientific research.

The conference website:

YAO is a yearly conference whose main goal is to create an international society of young scientists who specialize in quantum optics with a special focus on cold atomic gases. During these meetings experimentalists as well as theorists have a chance to present their research and results while also taking part in thought provoking discussions on their topics, whether it be in the form of a short presentation or a poster during the poster session. The participants of this conference are usually young doctoral students, but the conference is also open to masters students or really any young scientist who are beginning their work in the field of atomic physics.
