Quantum Chaos and Holography

Workshop Report

The main purpose of this workshop was to facilitate an intensive exchange of ideas between string theorists, condensed matter physicists, atomic physicists, mathematical physicists and researchers with other areas of expertise actively working on theory and applications of quantum chaos. It served a dual goal of both introducing researches from different communities to key models and results and outlining unresolved problems actively investigated by these different communities.


Key speakers:

Prof. Alexander Altland (Universität zu Köln)

Prof. Micha Berkooz (Weizmann Institute of Science)

Prof. Johanna Erdmenger (Julius-Maximilians-Universität Würzburg)

Prof. Ben Freivogel (University of Amsterdam)

Prof. Olivier Giraud (LPTMS Orsay)

Prof. Stefan Kehrein (Georg-August-Universität Göttingen)

Prof. Tomaz Prosen (University of Ljubljana)

Prof. Marcos Rigol (The Pennsylvania State University)

Prof. Julian Sonner (University of Geneva)


The conference featured a large fraction of young participants postdocs, graduate students and junior faculty. We accepted oral presentations from all postdocs and junior faculty, who requested to give a talk. One graduate student substituted Prof. Adolfo Del Campo, who could not come for personal reasons, and also gave an oral talk. All other graduate students were given an opportunity to present a poster. All junior participants, as far as we can judge, actively participated in multiple discussions during the conference. The organizers allocated extended time for such interactions.


The conference connected very different communities and facilitated exchange of a very broad range of ideas between them.
