This 7-day conference aims to bring scientists from China and Canada together, to nourish more extensive collaborations and to educate younger generations. The invited talks covers many aspects of quantum technologies, including quantum information theory and implementation, quantum cryptography and quantum communication, quantum materials, quantum metrology, and quantum foundations.

The properties of ultracold atoms can be profoundly modified with the help of laser beams. They can modify the wavefunction of neutral atoms in such a way that they show behavior of charged particles, e.g. electrons in high magnetic fields. In this way, synthetic magnetic fields and spin-orbit coupling have been realized, and a supersolid phase has been observed. A supersolid is superfluid and breaks translational symmetry, i.e. it has shape.
