Prof. Tommaso Calarco

The publishers of European Physical Journal D: Atomic, Molecular, Optical and Plasma Physics are delighted to announce the appointment of a new Editor-in-Chief, Professor Tommaso Calarco of the University of Ulm, Germany.

As Director of the Institute for Complex Quantum Systems and of the Centre for Integrated Quantum Science and Technology at Ulm, Prof Calarco’s research interests cover a broad range of topics in quantum and atom optics, quantum control and quantum information, and he is a member of the High-Level Steering Committee for the Quantum Flagship of the EC.

Prof Calarco has recently joined the Editorial Board for EPJD, and will take on the Editor-in-Chief role from January 2018, succeeding Prof Vladimir Buzek, who comes to the end of his five-year term.

Tom Spicer, Executive Editor for Physics at Springer, said “We are delighted to welcome Professor Calarco to the role of Editor-in-Chief for EPJD. He has an outstanding research record and has been a central figure in successfully driving European support for quantum physics and quantum technologies. We look forward to working with Tommaso and the Editorial Board to further raise the profile of EPJD in the fields of quantum optics and quantum information.”

Prof Calarco adds “I feel very honoured by this appointment. The fields of quantum optics and quantum information are enjoying a very promising expansion, and at the same time important challenges as applications in quantum technologies are being developed and expectations in this sense are growing. A journal such as EPJD can actively contribute to nurturing a strong scientific base in this context.”

EPJD has three Editors-in-Chief, and Prof Calarco joins Prof Andrey Solov’yov (MBN Research Center, Frankfurt am Main) and Prof Holger Kersten (Christian-Albrechts-Universität zu Kiel) who have responsibility for sections in atomic and molecular physics and plasma physics respectively.

The publishers of EPJ are EDP Sciences EDP Sciences (the publishing branch of the Société Française de Physique), the Società Italiana di Fisica and Springer.

This was our first experience of publishing with EPJ Web of Conferences. We contacted the publisher in the middle of September, just one month prior to the Conference, but everything went through smoothly. We have had published MNPS Proceedings with different publishers in the past, and would like to tell that the EPJ Web of Conferences team was probably the best, very quick, helpful and interactive. Typically, we were getting responses from EPJ Web of Conferences team within less than an hour and have had help at every production stage.
We are very thankful to Solange Guenot, Web of Conferences Publishing Editor, and Isabelle Houlbert, Web of Conferences Production Editor, for their support. These ladies are top-level professionals, who made a great contribution to the success of this issue. We are fully satisfied with the publication of the Conference Proceedings and are looking forward to further cooperation. The publication was very fast, easy and of high quality. My colleagues and I strongly recommend EPJ Web of Conferences to anyone, who is interested in quick high-quality publication of conference proceedings.
