In this talk I shall illustrate how ultracold quantum systems of atoms and ions can be used for quantum simulation and information processing as well as for investigating many-body quantum physics. I shall thus present a few theoretical examples on how to control an atomic bosonic Josephson junction with a single trapped ion, the formation of molecular ions, and how to engineer long-ranged atom-ion interactions with laser fields and Rydberg excitations.
