Scientific Events Organisation

General Chair, Scientific Chair

Pierre Rouchon was the main organizer of the spring thematic quarter at Institut Henri Poincaré entitled "Measurement and control of quantum systems: theory and experiments" (16 April – 13 July 2018). This thematic quarter includes courses, lectures and conferences. In particular a research school of one week at CIRM, two 3-day workshops in May and June and the 2018 issue of PRACQSYS conference in July, were organized in this framework. This thematic quarter involved several hundred of participants. See IHP web page (http://www.ihp.fr/en/CEB/T2-2018), CIRM web page (https://conferences.cirm-math.fr/1732.html) and the specific quarter web site (https://sites.google.com/view/mcqs2018/home).
