23-27 August 2021, Les Diablerets, Switzerland.

The first edition of the Quantum Thermodynamics summer school, hosted by NCCR SwissMap and Squids, with the support of the Quantum Center of ETH Zurich, took place in Les Diablerets in August 2021. The school is designed to provide a solid introduction to current approaches and problems within quantum thermodynamics, and is tailored to junior researchers entering the field.
