Picturesque Kangaroo Island is just off the mainland of South Australia, below Adelaide. The island known as “KI” has a vast array of native bushland, wildlife and boasts adventure & exploration. Pristine beaches, local wines and sunsets are on your doorstep.

This workshop held before ANZCOP will cover the latest developments in cold atom physics ranging from many-body physics and quantum simulation to precision measurement, quantum optics and quantum sensing. The program will feature a number of international speakers and will allow ample time for discussion. A key aim of the workshop will be to identify emerging topics for future research and collaboration.

Kangaroo Island is a short flight from Adelaide or a 2 hour bus ride from Adelaide to Cape Jervis and then a 40 minute ferry ride onto the island. The maximum attendees will be 100 people to keep the discussions within a close group. The workshop will be held at the Ozone Hotel, 67 Chapman Terrace, Kingscote, Kangaroo Island‎, Australia. Accommodation has been secured at the conference venue, or you are welcome to source your own accommodation. It is a busy time of year so if you plan to book your own accommodation, you are encouraged to do this promptly.
