Conference Scope

Atomic and molecular architectures on surfaces exhibit distinct quantum properties. Their reproducible manufacturing is gaining momentum and goes far beyond the single atom and the single spin. This is due to recent experimental breakthroughs and, on the other hand, due to increasing demand from other research areas, in particular quantum science/technology and quantum computing.

More details on the scope of the conference can be found here.

Dates and Venue

The conference will be held from August 21st to 25th, 2022, at the conference center Congressi Stefano Franscini. It is situated in the south of Switzerland on top of a small mountain with the nickname "Mountain of Truth" i.e. "Monte Verità" linking to its past as an epicentre of cultural inspiration and liberal thinking.
