From fundamental conceptual issues to the development of novel quantum devices, accurate calculation and control of quantum dynamical systems have great implications. However, beyond simple models and approximations, such tasks in general involve notoriously difficult theoretical problems. This workshop brings together experts working on these topics from both fields of condensed matter physics and chemical physics. The workshop will offer multifaceted information on current advances of quantum dynamics and control, and also will help understand core theoretical issues.
