The development of technologies for the 21st century, coupled with fundamental scientific inquiry, is driving new theoretical and experimental research on control in quantum systems. Experience has shown that systematic use of quantum control theory leads to significant improvements in technologies ranging from magnetic resonance to prototype quantum computers. Compelling case studies of quantum control have been developed in wide-ranging fields such as chemistry, metrology, optical networking and computer science.

This is the tenth international workshop on Principles and Applications of Control in Quantum Systems. The first workshop of that name was held at the California Institute of Technology in 2004. We retain its basic aim: to bring together researchers in physics, control theory, dynamical systems, stochastics, signal processing and information science to strengthen the community of quantum control.

As in previous workshops, all lectures will be from invited speakers, which will present recent developments at the forefronts of theoretical research, experimentation and motivating applications. 

The 2015 conference will take place in Sydney, Australia, at the UNSW (University of New South Wales) Australia Kensington campus,  from July 20 (Monday) to July 24 (Friday), 2015. A poster session will be held in the afternoon of the second day, and there will also be a workshop banquet organised on Wednesday evening. After the inaugural PRACQSYS at Caltech, past instances of the workshop have been held at

Harvard University, USA (2nd PRACQSYS)
University of Sydney, Australia (3rd PRACQSYS)
University of Oregon, USA (4th PRACQSYS)
Aarhus University, Denmark (5th PRACQSYS)
Chicheley Hall, Royal Society, UK (6th PRACQSYS)
University of Tokyo, Japan (7th PRACQSYS)
Monterey, CA, USA, organised by Stanford University (8th PRACQSYS)
Isaac Newton Institute, Cambridge University, UK (9th PRACQSYS)
