We aim to bring together people working in Quantum Optics to show recent exciting developments and highlights of this prospering field

Obergurgl is located in the Ötztal in Tyrol (the 3300 years old mummy "Oetzi the Iceman" was named after the valley and was found in a glacier close to that place). It is a prominent skiing resort in winter and a nice and relaxing alpine resort in summer. The conference will be held at the University Centre Obergurgl, which is associated with the University of Innsbruck.

Lectures will be held in the morning and in the afternoon, with an extended lunch break, allowing enough time for discussions and outdoor activities during the day. The time for lectures will be 30 minutes including discussions for all lectures, except for hot topic talks of 20 min.
There will be the opportunity to contribute posters. Given the number of participants we expect the poster sessions, which will run throughout the week, to be a substantial event at the meeting. .

The conference is sponsored by the Austrian Science Fund FWF via the Spezialforschungsbereich FoQuS.
It is co-sponsored by the ESF European EUROQUAM research network EUROQUAM research network. The conference also enjoys support from the Zentrum fuer Quantenphysik of the University of Innsbruck .
