This conference has been withdrawn from the 2020 conference schedule
As you are aware, coronavirus is having a global impact and the World Health Organization and the Centers for Disease Control have instituted recommendations that include social distancing and cancelling conferences and large gatherings. Since safety of our attendees is always GRC's highest priority, the GRC Board of Trustees has decided to withdraw this conference and it will be rescheduled for 2022. This decision was made out of an abundance of caution and to alleviate the concerns of our conference communities that are scheduled to meet in this timeframe.
The quantum behavior of mechanical excitations across many orders of magnitude in length and mass scales has become an exciting branch of quantum science. Today, researchers are formulating experiments that will harness mechanical excitations and phonons in an increasing range of precision measurements, quantum devices, and tests of fundamental physics. This meeting will bring together scientists to discuss the latest experimental and theoretical work on mechanical systems in the quantum regime through lectures and poster sessions. Scientists from a diverse set of fields will present advances in using mesoscopic mechanical devices for quantum information processing and transduction, continuum optomechanics, and fundamental tests with phonons; and elucidate connections to large-scale optical and atomic interferometers and associated fundamental physical measurements.
