Small open quantum systems are intensely studied in various fields of physics (nuclear, atomic, and molecular physics; mesoscopic physics; quantum optics, etc.). The properties of such systems are profoundly affected by their environment, such as the continuum of decay channels. In spite of their specific features, they also display generic properties that are common to all weakly bound/unbound systems close to threshold. The objective of this workshop, the fourth in a series, is to bring together various physics communities with shared interests, addressing similar universal few- and many-body phenomena using common concepts and methodologies.
