"Quantum 2019"

From Foundations of Quantum Mechanics to Quantum Information and Quantum Metrology & Sensing

Turin (Italy) May 26th to June 1st, 2019.

Quantum 2019 will be the 9th edition of this international conference attended by researchers coming from all over the world (about 300 in the last editions).

Purpose of this workshop is to favour the exchange of ideas and discussion on last results among leading physicists working in the interconnected fields of Quantum Metrology - Sensing & Imaging, Quantum Information and Foundations of Quantum Mechanics, in particular in the framework of quantum optics.

It is organized "ad memoriam" of our colleague and friend Carlo Novero who gave birth to this experimental research line in Turin.

Turin is a relatively large European town (1 milion of inhabitants) near Alps (in 2006 winter olympics games were in Turin). The weather in May is already relatively warm (about 25 Celsius degrees), but can be rainy.

The history of Turin is relatively long: it appeared first time in III century b.c. as allied of Rome during second Punic war (it was destroyed by Hannibal who crossed Alps in the valley in front of it). Then it was refounded by emperor Augusto as "Augusta Taurinorum". In 312 the emperor Constantin the great won at Turin the pagan emperor Maxensius, allowing for the first time his legionaries to enhance the flag with the cross ("In hoc signo vinces"). The town refused to receive Maxentius opening the door to Constantin.

At the end of empire Turin was seat of a bishop. Then it was free city before becoming part of Savoia dukedom (vassal of Holy Roman Germanic emperor). Since XV century became the capital town of the dukedom (University was founded in 1403) and, after having sustained a long siege of French troops in 1706, with Utrecht peace (1713) capital town of Sardinia kingdom. During the whole medieval, renaissance and baroque time it was often besieged during wars between French, Spaniards and Empire, becoming periodically under French power. It was part of French Empire of Napoleon. After restoration it became the centre of Italian Unification. The king of Turin Vittorio Emanuele II unified Italy in 1859-1861 and Turin became the first capital town of the unified kingdom. In the last century, after the transfer of the capital town to Florence (and then Rome), Turin grew as industrial town. Among famous Turin physicists of the past one can remember Lagrange, Avogadro and Galileo Ferraris.

Many historical monuments remember its history as the royal palace, the palace of the queen ("Palazzo Madama"), the mole Antonelliana (a former synagogue, the highest building in bricks in the World, and nowadays site of National Cinema Museum), the holy shroud chapel and the renaissance cathedral, many baroque palaces. Many museums collect the collections of Savoia dukes (among them the most famous is Egyptian museum, the second in the World after Cairo).
