Welcome to our school!


This doctoral/postdoctoral school aims at providing a broad overview on variational approaches to the quantum many-body problem. To this scope we gathered a distinguished set of lecturers that will provide 6 mini-courses (including tutorials) on topical aspects of current research. The school is addressed to students/young researchers working in a variety of different fields including quantum condensed matter, AMO physics, quantum information, quantum field theory, etc.

The school is open to a maximum of 30 participants -- admission to the school requires the presentation of a poster in a dedicated poster session.

Due to the COVID pandemic, the school will be entirely held online. The scientific program is the same, but the duration is extended to a full week to ease the attendance of the online lectures.
