Welcome to the inaugural Quantum Thermodynamics Down Under (QTDU) conference!

QTDU2023 will be a 4-day in-person conference situated in Brisbane, Australia, and an opportunity for all of us to share our research and foster collaborations with fellow researchers in quantum thermodynamics within Australia and our region of the globe.

We are delighted to welcome as our invited speakers (more of which we will announce as they are confirmed):
