joint DesOEQ-QSUM meeting that will take place 16th-19th September 2019 in Oxford. This event will be a joint workshop between two EPSRC Projects: Designing out-of-equilibrium many-body quantum systems (DesOEQ) and Quantum Science with Ultracold Molecules (QSUM), and we expect to have many fruitful discussions between the two research communities.

We will have five excellent invited speakers, poster sessions, and career sessions for junior researchers. We also plan to have longer discussion sessions following the talks to promote collaboration — as well as some fun and social activities, including punting on the river Cherwell.

The registration page is now open, so please visit the meeting website ( to register and submit abstracts for talks or posters should you wish to be considered for those. The registration deadline is 14 July 2019.
