Cargèse International School on QED
& Quantum Vacuum, Low Energy Frontier

Cargèse, Corsica, France

16-27 April 2012


Scope of the school

The school follows previous QED workshops concerning quantum vacuum fluctuations, held in Italy in 1993, Bulgaria in 1998, Italy in 2000 and finally in Les Houches, France in 2005. The purpose is to give the opportunity to young physicists to progress with a deeper understanding of this very promising field of fundamental physics.

Organizing committee (Toulouse, France)

Rémy Battesti, Alain Blanchard, Arnaud Dupays, Mathilde Fouché, Carlo Rizzo (Chairman)

Scientific Board

Dimitar Bakalov (Bulgaria), François Biraben (France), Astrid Lambrecht (France), Geert Rikken (France), Andreas Ringwald (Germany), Stephan Schiller (Germany), Eberhard Widmann (Austria)
