The Young Atom Optician conference (YAO) is an annual international
meeting aimed at PhD students and young scientists in the interdisciplinary field
of optical quantum technologies, such as quantum information or atomic and
molecular physics. The goal is to provide the participants with a unique
platform to exchange their latest scientific results and to extend their professional
network among the future leading scientists in this field. Since 1995 it has
been organised by PhD students in different institutes all over Europe.
Previous editions took place among others in Glasgow (2018), Paris (2017),
