Organised by Professor John Gough, Professor Matthew James, Professor Hideo Mabuchi, Professor Ian Walmsley and Professor Klaus Mølmer

Quantum control aims to provide the mathematical and theoretical framework which will underpin emerging quantum technologies: it sets about extending traditional engineering concepts, such as optimality, feedback, stability, robustness, filtering, etc., to the quantum domain. This meeting will bring together scientists and engineers (theoreticians and experimentalists) to review the major developments, and to identify the opportunities and challenges ahead.
