2018 Hangzhou Workshop on Quantum Matter
The Hangzhou Workshop on Quantum Matter is organized by the International Collaborative Center for Quantum Matter (ICCQM), a virtual research center established in 2009 as a platform for collaborations in the areas of quantum matter between Rice University and Zhejiang University. Other participating institutions of the ICCQM include the Max Planck Institute for Chemical Physics of Solids in Dresden, the London Center for Nanotechnology, the University of Science and Technology of China, and Hangzhou Normal University. Quantum Matter is a frontier subject concerning modern condensed matter and atomic systems, in which quantum correlation and quantum coherence strongly influence their physics properties. Information on previous workshops in the series can be found at the website of the ICCQM.
The 2018 Hangzhou Workshop on Quantum Matter will cover a broad range of topics on strongly correlated systems. These will include unconventional superconductivity, heavy fermions systems, quantum phase transitions and quantum critical phenomena, the physics of spin liquids, correlated topological systems, correlation effects in twisted graphene layers, ultracold atoms and quantum engineered systems.
The workshop will bring together experimentalists and theorists from different countries in the world, including China, USA, Europe, Japan, and South Korea. In addition, it aims to stimulate and encourage more graduate students and junior scientists to engage in research on Quantum Matter.
