MCQM20 Third School and Workshop
Mathematical Challenges in Quantum Mechanics
Como, Italy -- June 8 - 13, 2020
Aim and Scopes
The aim of the meeting is to present the state of the art in some challenging open problems in Quantum Mechanics from the point of view of Mathematical Physics. It is addressed to young people interested in working on the subject but also to experienced researchers willing to exchange the newest ideas and methods in the field. Among the topics covered: spectral and scattering theory for Schrödinger operators, effective behavior in many particles quantum systems, Bose-Einstein condensation, nonlinear Schrödinger equation, semiclassical analysis, numerical analysis of quantum systems, quantum graphs.
Three courses of 6 hours will be given in a series of lectures scheduled in the morning of each day. In the afternoon short contributed talks will be given by young participants, followed by plenary talks given by invited speakers.
A financial support covering accommodation expenses will be available for a limited number of young participants.

The conference will be rescheduled to June 2021, the exact dates will be fixed as soon as possible.
After a very difficult month in the Lombardia region, with a death toll of several thousands, there are signs that the restrictive measures enacted are working. Officials suggest that the outbreak is peaking these days in this area, presently the hardest-hit by the pandemics, and pressure on hospitals seems eventually to reduce.
Of course, the strict measures will be maintained until the infection will cease to spread, and this may take a month or possibly more.
Also in the most optimistic scenario of a fast resolution of the outbreak, due to the worldwide spread of the pandemic we cannot hope to keep the original dates for our conference and school.
