69th Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting

We are pleased to inform you that the scientific review panel of the Council for the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings has selected young researcher Jan Ravnik to participate in the 69th Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting taking place from 30 June to 05 July 2019 in Lindau, Germany. Only the 600 most qualified young scientists can be given the opportunity to enrich and share the unique atmosphere of the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings.

Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings


Na nemškem otoku Lindau na Bodenskem jezeru je med 30.6. in 5.7.2019 potekalo tradicionalno, že 69. srečanje Nobelovih nagrajencev.

Letošnjega dogodka se udeležuje 39 Nobelovih nagrajencev ter 580 perspektivnih mladih raziskovalcev in podoktorskih raziskovalcev s celega sveta, ki so uspešno prestali selekcijski postopek. Med njimi so tudi štirje slovenski študenti Jan Ravnik (Institut Jožef Stefan), Marko Medenjak, Gal Lemut in zamejski Slovenec Giovanni Banelli.

Srečanja, ki potekajo že vse od leta 1951, so zasnovana kot forumi za izmenjavo mnenj, izkušenj in znanja med znanstveniki različnih generacij, kultur in disciplin.

Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting

27TH DAYS OF JOŽEF STEFAN | March 23 – 29

Each year since 1993, at the end of March, the Institute has organised the Days of Jožef Stefan, with the aim being to popularise science and to celebrate the birthday of this great Slovenian physicist. This year, the 70th anniversary of the Institute will be celebrated.

Programme 2019







Have you always wondered what the scientists at the Jožef Stefan Institute are researching?
Do you want to visit a real scientific laboratory?
Are you interested in talking to Jožef Stefan Institute’s scientists?
Are you a pupil or a student and are interested in natural sciences, but you do not know what a career in science really means?

Visit us during the Open Day!

Each year at the end of March, traditional Stefan’s Days take place at the Institute, marking the birthday (24 March) of the great Slovenian scientist, Jožef Stefan. In the scope of Stefan’s Days, Center for Technology Transfer and Innovation – in cooperation with the Institute’s research departments – organizes the Open Day. Visitors can choose from a number of visit programmes and look at the laboratories at Jamova cesta and at the Reactor Center where the tours are enabled and organized by the Nuclear Training Center (ICJT).

Open Day begins at 9:00 with the first guided tours, while we take the last groups through the Institute’s laboratories at 13:00; in the meanwhile, guided tours begin at each full hour. Each visit in the course of one programme lasts one hour (60 minutes).


Nonequilibrium Quantum Dynamics and Relaxation Phenomena in Many Body Systems, December 16 – 19, 2018, Krvavec, Slovenia

Nonequilibrium Quantum dynamics is becoming one of the most advanced contemporary research areas in solid state physics, ultracold atoms, nano physics and quantum devices. Understanding of such dynamics in real world systems presents a challenge to experimentalists and theory alike. The time-evolution of many-body quantum systems can be viewed as the time-evolution of quantum information, opening the way to new experimental ideas. At the same time, new and sometimes unexpected experimental discoveries provide stimulus for theory. This workshop continues a tradition with the 7th in the series of focused worskops on nonequilibrium quantum phenomena which by all accounts have been extremely stimulating. This workshop intends to bring together scientists working in the field of:

  • Nonequilibrium quantum dynamics and relaxation phenomena in closed quantum systems
  • Nonequilibrium quantum dynamics in CDW’s, superconductors and frustrated magnetic systems
  • Nonequilibrium quantum dynamics of ultracold atoms in optical lattices
