The International Wigner Workshop (IWW) 2023, the fifth installment of the biennial workshop series established by the Wigner Initiative, will bring together researchers in the many fields of physics, chemistry, and engineering where Wigner functions are applied.

IWW 2023 will be held on June 11-12, 2023 at the Casa Convalescència, Barcelona, Spain.

Wigner functions have become extremely important in the past two decades, because of their ability to clearly illustrate non-classical behavior and quantum entanglement. This makes them very important for coherent matter-wave physics, optically-based frequency standards, and systems using quantum entanglement and coherence in quantum systems. In addition, the Wigner function approach gives unique insight into studies of the materials systems and materials properties that are essential for improving the capabilities in systems based upon the quantum features mentioned just above.

The workshop will host a selection of invited talks and regular research talks. Participants wishing to give an oral or poster presentation are kindly asked to email a two-page abstract (one page text, one page figures) for review. The abstracts will be compiled into a Book of Abstracts (with ISBN) which will be hosted online and will be distributed to the participants.

IWW 2023 is a satellite event of the International Workshop on Computational Nanotechnology (IWCN) 2023.
