The 2nd Quantum Thermodynamics Conference joins a wide program of keynote, invited and contributed talks, a poster session, discussion time for all workgroups as well as the management committee meeting of the COST action. The rich scientific program is completed by local outing and an excursion to Serra de Tramuntana (World Heritage Site by UNESCO) providing excellent opportunities to further connect with colleagues.



3 work group meetings around three main topics of the COST action have been scheduled to favour scientific discussions.
The 3 work groups are:
WG 1: Equilibration, thermalisation, and emergence of canonical states
WG 2: Thermodynamic and information theoretic relations for general quantum systems
WG 3: Implementations: from classical to quantum thermodynamic experiments
A. Acin (WG1), T. Brandes (WG2), and Nicolas Tolazzi & Eric Lutz (WG3) will chair and introduce these meetings and you are invited to contribute to the discussion.
Choose the format you prefer: both overhead-projector and whiteboard will be available.
