The Cold Atom Predoc School is organized every year in Les Houches School of Physics, in the framework of the GDR Atomes froids in the continuity of a PhD program started in 2004. The objective of the school is to give students starting a PhD thesis in this field all the necessary knowledge on Laser cooling, Cold collisions, Quantum degenerate gases, and Optical lattices for the success of their project. This year, the school will in addition cover the growing topic of Ultracold molecules and their Quantum applications.

The school will take place from October 5 to October 16, 2020. Registrations are open from March 16 to June 30, 2020.

As the situation is always evolving due to the Covid-19 outbreak, we will keep you updated. For the moment, registrations for this school are maintained.

The preliminary scientific program at a glance is given below (the titles of the lectures might slightly change). In total, the school covers 51 hours of lectures and 3 hours of posters session.
