Greenhorn Meeting 2019


The Greenhorn Meeting is an annual conference for young scientists working on atomic physics, quantum optics, ultra-cold gases, and related topics. The participants are in the first year of their PhD studies or in the last year of their Master studies.

Besides giving the participants a platform to present their work with talks and posters, the meeting is an opportunity to exchange ideas and get to know each other in a relaxed atmosphere.
