Atomic molecular and optical physics for quantum technologies
Topic description coming soon

Applications of nuclear and particle physics to Society
Nuclear and particle physics is a vibrant and vital area of science that studies the basic properties of matter at the level of atomic nuclei and their fundamental constituents and interactions. The implementation of the research programme for carrying out the investigation of the deepest secrets of the Universe require the development of very sophisticated tools based on advanced technologies. The resulting technical progress benefits a great variety of solutions to challenging problems that affect our society.
While in day 1 the chair of NuPECC, Marek Lewitowicz, will overview the most significant nuclear and particle physics applications, the session scheduled in day 2 will be focused on more specific topics, which will be highlighted by leading scientists who have been greatly contributing over the last years to nuclear energy, health and cultural heritage and forensics.

Condensed matter and applications to industry
We intend to provide a sampling of some of the most exciting topics currently being investigated in condensed matter physics. Two tutorial lectures on 2D Materials and Large Facilities (Neutron and Synchrotron Sources) will introduce students (and other general audiences) to key materials and experiments that are currently being used to discover new physical properties of matter. A panel discussion with the participation of various start-ups and titled "Condensed Matter: Current Challenges, Advances and New Perspectives from the Atomic Scale to Health Physics" will show early-career researchers how to broaden their horizons in their future career. In addition, four scientific talks on hot topics in condensed matter will show attendees just how vibrant research in this field is today.

Energy management, pollution and climate; Artificial intelligence, brain inspired processing systems and applications
Topic description coming soon

Photonics has been recognized by the European Commission as one of Europe's key enabling technologies of the 21st Century. Many technologies are driven by photonic tools, with applications ranging from communications and metrology to manufacturing, to life sciences, health care and security. The EPS Forum 2024 will host a dedicated Photonics programme with two focus topics: laser science and photonic integrated circuitry (PIC). Lasers have been an enabling technology for both fundamental research and industry ever since their introduction almost 60 years ago. Photonic integrated circuitry based on III–V semiconductor materials are at the core of our modern communication networks and protocols. Advancements in the development of novel PIC platforms and materials opened new perspectives in fields such as metrology, life science, and quantum technology. The programme of the Forum will give participants an overview about current developments in laser science and PIC, in both academia and industry, and outlook on future trends.
