Quantum Lectures 2022

ad memoriam of Carlo Novero

24-26 May 2022 - online event

To commemorate the 20 years since the departure of our colleague and friend Carlo Novero we decided to organize the online event “Quantum Lectures 2022 (ad memoriam of Carlo Novero)”.

This workshop will consist of a short series of keynote lectures given by distinguished researchers in the Quantum Foundations, Information and Metrology & Sensing fields. The purpose of the event, free of charge and particularly addressed to Ph.D. students and postdocs, is to give an overview on the latest and most exciting results from leading scientists working in these interconnected research areas, especially in the quantum optics framework, favouring the exchange of ideas and discussion.
