Dear Colleagues!

We invite you to take part in the XIII International Workshop on Quantum Optics

The XIII International Workshop on Quantum Optics (IWQO-2019) continues a series of conferences on topical issues of quantum optics, which are held in the Russian Federation with the participation of representatives of foreign research teams.

Beginning in October 1989 in Kazan on the basis of the Kazan E. K. Zavoisky Physical-Technical Institute (KPhTI), Professor V.V. Samartsev began to hold small annual seminars called “Workshop on Quantum Optics”, where guest lecturers gave lectures on a specific scientific problem. In 1993, V Readings on quantum optics first took place outside Kazan, they were held in the Republic of Mari El on Lake Tair and were dedicated to the 70th anniversary of Professor Uno Hermanovich Kopville. VI Workshop, which took place in 1994 in the KFTI assembly hall, were dedicated to the memory of the doctor of physical and mathematical sciences. Sciences Yuri Evgenievich Sheybut. VII Workshop were held in November 1996 in the boarding house “Avtomobilist” (Republic of Mari El). In 1999, by the composition of the participants, the Readings first became international and were dedicated to the 60th anniversary of their organizer and inspirer – Vitaly Vladimirovich Samartsev.

Recently, IWQO are held every 4 years (2003 – St. Petersburg, 2007 – Samara, 2011 – Volgograd, 2015 – Moscow, Troitsk).
