The Australian and New Zealand School in Ultracold Physics (ANZSUP) is a two week graduate summer school aimed at Master level and beginning PhD students. In the field of ultra-cold physics it is aimed at providing graduate students with the relevant background in experiments and theory. This year's school will cover topics ranging from laser trapping and cooling of ultra-cold atoms through quantum simulation and open quantum systems, ultra-cold Bose and Fermi gases, optical lattices and many-body systems with disorder, spinor order parameters and long-range interactions, polaritons in semiconductors. Lecturers from Australasia and further afield will provide mini-courses on a given topic. The list of topics and the lecturers for ANZSUP 2015 include: Introduction to laser cooling and trapping, by William P. Phillips (NIST, USA) Microscopic control of quantum gases and quantum simulation, by Andrew Daley (University of Strathclyde, UK) Quantum gases and condensed matter, by Andy Martin (the University of Melbourne, AU) Anderson localization and interacting matter waves on lattices, by Sergej Flach (Massey University, NZ / Institute for Basic Science, KR) Synthetic gauge fields for ultra-cold atoms, by Ian Spielman (NIST, USA) Fermi gas experiments, by Chris Vale (Swinburne University, AU) Exciton polariton condensates, by Elena Ostrovskaya (ANU, AU) Matlab workshop on stochastic differential equations, by Peter Drummond (Swinburne University, AU) Entanglement, squeezing and applications, by Margaret Reid (Swinburne University, AU) Vortices and quantum turbulence, by Tapio Simula (Monash University, AU) Many-body localisation, by Igor Aleiner (University of Columbia, USA) Quantum Control and Continuous Measurement, by Ivan Deutsch (University of New Mexico, USA) Trapped ion quantum information, by Rainer Blatt (University of Innsbruck, Austria) Open quantum systems and Dissipative dynamics of hot Bose-Einstein condensates, by Ashton Bradley (University of Otago, NZ)
