About ICAP 2022

The 27th International Conference on Atomic Physics (formerly ICAP 2020, now ICAP 2022) will be held from 17 to 22 July, 2022, in Toronto, Canada. Registration is open! We also offer both in-person and online attendance options. The meeting features invited plenary presentations and contributed poster presentations on cutting-edge research in the field of atomic, molecular, and optical physics. In the pages of this site, you will find information about the speaker schedule, travel, sponsors, and answers to frequently asked questions. Please see our older (Indico-based) web site for scheduling information about posters, since we are still incorporating this information into the new site.

Topics of the meeting will include

  • Properties and dynamics of neutral or charged atoms and molecules
  • Many-body physics of quantum gases
  • Quantum computation and communication
  • Quantum simulation
  • Fundamental tests and precision measurements
  • Quantum optics in both AMO systems and beyond, such as superconducting qubits
  • Intense fields and ultrafast science
  • Rydberg and artificial atoms and molecules
  • Atomic clocks and quantum metrology
  • Cold molecules
  • Out-of-equilibrium quantum systems
  • Applications of AMO physics to technology

Venue

The main venue for ICAP-27 is the spectacular Royal Conservatory of Music (RCM), at 273 Bloor Street West, Toronto, Ontario. Since 1886, the Royal Conservatory has offered a sequenced system of study and assessment for music education to students across Canada. Its Koerner Hall offers an unparalleled acoustic experience to lovers of music (or physics).

The poster sessions will be held at Hart House (7 Hart House Circle), which less than ten minutes' walk from the RCM into the University of Toronto Campus. During the academic year, Hart House is a student centre, offers rooms for studying, recreation and socializing. Its facilities include a theatre, an art gallery, reading and sitting rooms, lounges and reception areas, offices, a library, music rooms, conference and study rooms, as well as a restaurant.

Each of these venues is only a few minutes' walk from conference hotels [see ICAP-27 Map] and from the closest subway stops: St. George station and Queen's Park station. What to learn more about Toronto? Follow these links for its history, festivals, parks, museums, and other attractions.
