Workshop on

Nanomechanical systems approaching the quantum regime

Munich, September 15-17, 2008

Location: Arnold-Sommerfeld Center for Theoretical Physics, Ludwig-Maximilians-University, Theresienstr. 37, 80333 Munich, Germany

Topics: Nanomechanics, Interaction of nanomechanical or micromechanical structures with electric circuits or optical radiation, Quantum transport in nanomechanical settings, Quantum measurement, amplification, cooling, nonlinear dynamics, and entanglement in such systems

Program: The workshop will consist of 22 invited 45-min talks as well as a poster session.

Registration: There is no registration fee and all interested students and researchers are welcome to attend the workshop. Please start looking for accomodation early, as this is the week before the Oktoberfest starts. In case you like to present a poster, send an email with the tentative title to Florian Marquardt.

Hope to see you there!
