Objectives:
This longstanding biannual conference brings together outstanding researchers and young scientists in Quantum Optics to present and discuss the recent most exciting developments and highlights in a stimulating environment.

Support:
The conference is cosponsored by the Austrian Science Fund FWF via the Spezialforschungsbereich FoQuS.

Venue:
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.

Program:
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.

There will be the opportunity to contribute talks or posters, which the scientific board will select from the applications. The posters will be presented in two evening sessions A  and B.
