The Cold Atom Predoc School is organized every year in Les Houches School of Physics in the continuity of a PhD program started in 2004 (*). The objective of the school is to give students starting a PhD thesis in this field all the necessary knowledge on Laser cooling and trapping, Ultra-cold collisions, Quantum gases and superfluidity, and Optical lattices for the success of their project. This year, the school will in addition focus on the topic of Quantum mixtures in a quite general sense- offering series of lectures on topology, Fermion superfluidity and polarons, dynamics of quantum mixtures and quantum droplets, molecules, and on quantum interferometry. 

The school will take place from September 26th to October 7th, 2022. Registrations are open from April 11 to June 30, 2022. For now, the school is planned to be held in-person. However, as the situation is still uncertain regarding the Covid-19, changes may occur. We will keep this page updated.
