    Title: Noncommuting charges: Bridging theory to experiment

    Speaker: Shayan Majidy (Institute for Quantum Computing, Waterloo, Canada)

    Abstract: Noncommuting conserved quantities have recently launched a subfield of quantum thermodynamics. In conventional thermodynamics, a system of interest and an environment exchange quantities– energy, particles, electric charge, etc.– that are globally conserved and are represented by Hermitian operators. These operators were implicitly assumed to commute with each other, until a few years ago. Freeing the operators to fail to commute has enabled many theoretical discoveries – about reference frames, entropy production, resource-theory models, etc. Little work has bridged these results from abstract theory to experimental reality. This work provides a methodology for building this bridge systematically: we present a prescription for constructing Hamiltonians that conserve noncommuting quantities globally while transporting the quantities locally. The Hamiltonians can couple arbitrarily many subsystems together and can be integrable or nonintegrable. Our Hamiltonians may be realized physically with superconducting qudits, with ultracold atoms, and with trapped ions.

    The Association of Asia Pacific Physical Societies (AAPPS) and the Korean Physical Society (KPS) are pleased to announce that the 15th Asia Pacific Physics Conference (APPC15) will be held on August 21 - 26, 2022, South Korea.

    APPC is the series of triennial conferences of AAPPS, covering all areas of physics. KPS hosts the 15th APPC in 2022. The 15th APPC will provide a forum to share and discuss physics researches and educations, promoting collaborations and friendship in Asia Pacific regions.

    The Australian Institute of Physics NSW Branch and The Teachers’ Guild of NSW will host the 2022 STEM Education and Industry Forum on Wednesday 28th September at the Concord Golf Club.

    This forum will incorporate the theme Excellence in STEM Learning and will be cross-sectoral, including School Leaders, Primary and Secondary Teachers, Teachers of science, mathematics, engineering, technology, Careers advisors, Pre-service teachers, Vocational education teachers from both government and non-government schools including STEM industry groups.

    The forum aims to emphasise both networking (within focus areas and stages) and practical applications. There will be teach-meet mini lectures and networking opportunities focussing on industry engagement, curriculum updates including addresses on the interdisciplinary approach to learning ideas that will help educators to implement their own school’s STEM initiatives.

    The day will give teachers and school leaders an interdisciplinary approach to learning ideas that will help them implement their own school’s STEM initiatives and stimulate thinking and discussions about STEM education learning and real-world applications. The aim of the forum is an opportunity for educators to learn from leading educationalists.

    Welcome to A Festival of Science

    On behalf of the Organising Committee we take great pleasure in inviting you to the Engineering and Physical Sciences in Medicine Conference 2022 in Tarntanya; the name used by traditional owners, the Kaurna people, of the lands where Adelaide currently stands. We are excited to be planning an in-person conference to be held at the Adelaide Convention Centre from 13-16 November 2022. The Conference theme will be "A Festival of Science".

    With this Conference being convened on the traditional country of the Kaurna people, the Organising Committee pay their respects to the Kaurna Elders past, present and future. We recognise and respect their cultural heritage, beliefs, and relationship with the land as well as their continuing importance to the Kaurna people living today. For this reason, the traditional name used by the Kaurna people, Tarntanya, will be employed in tandem with its more familiar form, Adelaide, by the Committee throughout this Conference to acknowledge our respect to the Karuna people.

    The Organising Committee also extends their respects to other Aboriginal and First Nations groups from whose lands we all presently occupy.

    We are pleased to invite you to attend Asia-Pacific Condensed Matter Physics Conference 2022 (AC2MP2022).

    The second meeting of this series will be jointly organized by the Division of Condensed Matter Physics (DCMP) and the Institute for Materials Research, Tohoku University. The DCMP aims at systematic and continuous exchanges to further develop condensed matter physics in the Asia-Pacific region. Condensed matter physics is one of the major parts of physics that covers a wide range of disciplines. It is constantly developing under vibrant interactions within various scientific areas and contributes to expanding human knowledge and developing society. For example, the Institute for Materials Research is one of the international centres of materials science and condensed matter physics. It operates the international collaboration program called GIMRT: Global Institute for Materials Research Tohoku.
