Atoms and photons Nice 2019

In the framework of the Networks "GDR Atomes froids" and Intercan, the workshop "Atoms and Photons Nice 2019" aims at gathering experts on atomic physics, classical and quantum waves, with a special focus on light-atom interactions. We aim at a small-sized workshop (40 to 60 attendees including 25 invited speakers) to favour interactions and discussions between the participants.


The meeting is open to any people interested in the limit of the available space (first come first served).

There is no fee but registration is mandatory. To do so, please write an email to with the subject "Registration Atoms Photons" with your name and affiliations.

IMPORTANT: Please note that the exceptional session at Calern observatory on the Thursday afternoon has to be limited to 40 people. As a consequence, please write in your registration email if you want to attend to this session (invited speakers will be given priority and for other participants, first come, first served).

ALSO IMPORTANT: There will be a poster session (limited to 20 posters), so please write in your registration email if you wish to present a poster.

Deadline: 20 October 2019. Registration is now closed.

You will receive a confirmation shortly after the deadline.
