About this workshop


Frank Hekking was one of the leading scientists in mesoscopic physics. His research activity covered a broad range of topics ranging from quantum transport, to proximity effect in superconductors, superconducting quantum circuits, and ultracold atoms. During his career, he set up a large and very fruitful network of collaborations with many theoreticians and experimentalists worldwide. All his collaborators hold in high regard the rare kindness and honesty of Frank which set an example for many colleagues and young researchers.

We intend to bring together Frank’s colleagues, scientists and young students to remember his figure as scientist. Conceptual and applicative aspects in mesoscopic physics and ultracold atoms inspired by his scientific work will be covered. We will give space also to colleagues and former students to remember Frank as friend, teacher and mentor. The workshop will consist of various programmed talks per day leaving time for discussions and exchange of ideas among the participants. A poster session is also planned.
