The FINESS workshop series aims to bring together a critical mass of theoretical and experimental expertise at the forefront of research in the fields of degenerate ultra-cold matter, polariton-exciton condensates as well as strongly correlated and open quantum systems. 

The central aims of FINESS are

  • To seed development of theoretical approaches for finite-temperature non-equilibrium superfluid systems.
  • To stimulate discussion between theoretical and experimental researchers on a range of active and emerging topics.

As in previous meetings, we will include a significant number of participants from experimental research from a number of fields to facilitate direct interaction between experimental and theoretical research in out-of-equilibrium quantum systems.

Code of Conduct

FINESS2024 will be strictly observing the EQUS code of conduct.
