Conference "Hadrons and Nuclear Physics Meet Ultracold Atoms : a French-Japanese Workshop"

IHP January 29 - February 2, 2018


This workshop has been organised in the framework of a french-japanese collaboration CNRS/JSPS in the few-body problem initiated by Emiko Hiyama (RIKEN), Jaume Carbonell (IPN Orsay) and Jean-Marc Richard (IPN Lyon). It was in the continuity of two other workshops organized at RIKEN (2015 & 2016) and a workshop organized in 2017 at Saclay.

The scientific program followed a double thematic progression: on one hand, from the high energies (Lattice QCD) toward low energies (ultracold atoms and condensed matter) and on the other hand from the few- toward the many-body problem. This interdisciplinary event aiming at promoting discussions between specialists of different fields/methods including Lattice QCD, Effective field Theory, Nuclear physics, Ultra-cold atoms, Few-body, Condensed Matter.

The local organization and part of the travel expenses was covered by a grant obtained from the COMUE Sorbonne Universités in the program of "Séminaires internationaux de recherche de Sorbonne Universités"
