Recent revolutionary progress in quantum metrology has enabled us to measure physical quantities with hitherto unexplored precision, which allows us to explore new horizon in physics and novel interdisciplinary applications.

ERATO International Workshop: Challenges in Precision Science brings together scientists working in the field of quantum metrology with cold atoms and lasers and in the other fields to promote mutual discussions on dealing with the future challenges with the-state-of-the-art “PRECISION.”

We welcome your participation to the workshop and discussions.


  • Precision Measurements with Cold Atoms, Ions and Molecules
  • Optical Lattice Clocks
  • New Development in Lasers and Atom Manipulations
  • Relativistic Geodesy
  • Test of Fundamental Physics
  • Challenges for New Physics
