SuperFluctuations 2022

Fluctuations and Highly Non Linear Phenomena in
Superfluids and Superconductors


July 6-8, 2022

    Padova, Italy    

Hybrid On-line and On-Site Conference

Jointly organized by: University of Camerino and University of Padova, Italy
and Columbia University, USA

The Conference SuperFluctuations this year will be organized on-line and on-site in the beautiful artistic town of Padova, in the Veneto region of Italy. We will share in a highly interactive manner our recent scientific achievements and future research perspectives. During the conference we will discuss opportunities to establish large collaboration efforts or empowering existing ones, as well as to plan joint participation to international projects. Young participants will be able to look and discuss opportunities for doctoral or post doc positions. Cross-fertilization, merging of capacities, and methods will be encouraged in a very interactive atmosphere. A guided excursion to the historical Palazzo del Bo will be organized.

Main Topics:

Fluctuations and BCS-BEC crossover phenomena: multicomponent and low dimensional systems,
spin-orbit coupling, FFLO states.
Novel Quantum Phenomena with Bose and Fermi Mixtures.
Highly nonlinear phenomena: Josephson and Andreev effects, topological defects, vortex states.
Electron-hole and Excitonic superfluidity and supersolidity: theory, numerical simulations, and experimental realizations.
Innovative numerical methods: Machine Learning, its synergies with QMC, and applications.
Quantum technologies and quantum devices / sensors based on novel superconducting / superfluid systems.
