The 10th version of the Quantum Optics Congress will bring together the scientific community in areas such as Quantum Optics, Quantum Information Processing, Fundamental Test of Quantum Mechanics, Non-Linear Optics, Atom-Photon Interactions, Atom Optics, and Quantum Interference, among others.

This event began in the year 2000 and, since then, gathers the scientific community of Latin America every two years. This 10th edition is dedicated to Professor Miguel Orzag, organizer of the first edition of the Quantum Optics Congress. The event will be held from December 9 to 13 at the Dreams Hotel, located in the city of Puerto Varas, in southern Chile.

Quantum Optics is a conference that periodically gathers leading scientists in the fields of optics and quantum optics from different regions of the world.

Held for the first time under the organization of the University of Rochester, New York, in the 1960s, this first edition was attended by leading figures in this area of study in the United States, such as physicists Leonard Mandel and Emil Wolf.

In Latin America, the first of these meetings was held in Santiago, Chile, in 2000. Since then, these meetings have been held every two years, which brings us to this new Quantum Optics 2024 in the city of Puerto Varas, in the Los Lagos region of Chile.

This year, the conference aims to reunite diverse members of academia to facilitate research collaboration and the exchange of key knowledge for the international development of Quantum Optics but also seeks to recognize the trajectory of Chilean researcher Miguel Orszag, who organized the first edition of the congress.

Dr. Miguel Orszag is currently professor and director of the Center for Quantum Optics and Quantum Information at the Universidad Mayor. During his scientific career, he has specialized in the areas of Theoretical Physics, Quantum Information Theory, and Quantum Optics.
