QUIC plenary meeting

April 20-21, 2017:    First plenary meeting of all QUIC partners in Firenze, Italy

More than 40 people from QUIC have participated to the meeting, with all the nodes well represented. The meeting has been a success: it has effectively allowed the presentation of the latest results by the consortium, the discussion of new ideas and the creation of new collaborations among the partners. Most the presentations have been given by post-docs or PhD students.

New or particularly relevant research directions in QUIC that have emerged during the meeting are: Topological materials, Quantum liquid droplets, Time-dependent potentials, Dipolar quantum systems, Superfluid transitions in shallow lattices, Supersolidity.
