Abstract submission

Abstract submission date extended!

Contributions for oral and/or poster presentations are invited. Abstracts of a maximum of 1 page, including text and diagrams should be submitted online by 18 April 2017. 

Upon submission of your abstracts you will be asked to indicate to which of the four main themes your abstract most closely aligns. If your abstract represents work that belongs under some theme other than the four main themes; please submit and indicate the theme as 'other' (abstracts that fall into the 'other' category will be given equal consideration to those that fall under one of the four main themes).

  1. Spectroscopy and optics of confined excitons and photonic structures [self-assembled quantum dots, colloidal quantum dots, photonic crystals, quantum wires]
  2. Quantum optics and coherent control of single spins, excitons, and phonons
  3. Polariton-exciton many body phenomena [quantum fluid dynamics, BEC, quantum optics, spin physics]
  4. Excitons in emerging materials [including two-dimensional materials]
