The scientific program of FNS/2019 will comprise three and one-half days of talks in a single, plenary-session format. The program will include two poster sessions and fourteen oral sessions.
Among session foci for FNS/2019 are:
- quantum electromechanics
- strongly nonlinear dynamical response
- synchronization & pattern formation phenomena with NEMS & MEMS resonators
- quantum & classical fluctuations far from equilibrium and many-body localization of vibrational excitations
- topological effects in phononic systems
- mechanical-domain dissipation, many-body quantum dissipation, and dissipation engineering in NEMS & MEMS
- single- and multi-modal Floquet dynamics
- coupling of mechanical vibrations to other degrees of freedom – including atoms, molecules, electrons, spins, and photons.
- classical & quantum sensing with nanomechanical systems
As for the previous 2017 event, FNS/2019 is intended to be a working meeting. Each session will include ample time for discussions amongst speakers and workshop participants. “Moderator/provocateurs” will preside over each session to facilitate free-flowing and continuous dialog. The provocateurs will anchor discussions and prevent uninterrupted monologues by peppering the speakers’ presentations, as appropriate, with preconceived “blue-sky” questions.
FNS/2019 will be organized as follows: Two morning sessions will be held each day, separated by an half-hour coffee/discussion break. Lunches will be provided during an extended period, after which two additional afternoon sessions will commence, which are also punctuated by an extended coffee/discussion break. There will be a conference reception on Sunday evening and a conference banquet on Wednesday evening. On two evenings (Monday & Tuesday) sufficient time will be allocated to permit conference participants to walk to the excellent restaurants nearby.
The draft agenda for FNS/2019 is delineated below; please note that further updates are likely!
