14–18 May 2018 International Conference on Multi-Condensate Superconductivity and Superfluidity in Solids and Ultra-Cold Gases

Trieste, Italy

The standard picture of superconductors and superfluids is based on the existence of a single quantum condensate, but recent advances in material science and ultracold atoms opened a paradigm of multicomponent quantum fluids. New directions in this multifacetted and booming field are opened by emergent 2D materials, heterostructures, multiorbital materials, and ultracold atomic mixtures, in which superconductivity and superfluidity are readily realized, and where links between observed quantum effects can be made and knowledge can be cross-fertilized. This MultiSuper conference is aimed to help understand, quantify, and manipulate the effects of hybridization between multiple condensates in a single system, as a pathway to yet unseen quantum phenomena. The key experts will be assembled to present and interpret state-of-the-art experiments and theory, and advance fundamental physics and material science in this field.

26 June–1 July 2016 Correlated Electron Systems - Gordon Research Conference

Mount Holyoke College, South Hadley, MA, USA

The Gordon Research Conference on Correlated Electron Systems is an important forum for new phenomena and techniques in the study of "quantum materials", those whose electronic properties are difficult to understand from a conventional perspective. The scientific program strikes a balance between well-established subjects with profound, long-standing mysteries, and emerging areas that show great promise for rapid discoveries. In the former area, the 2016 meeting will include sessions on frustrated magnetism, high temperature superconductivity, and the fractional quantum Hall effect, which have all seen important developments in the past few years. In the latter category, sessions are planned on iridate and heavy fermion materials in which topological concepts are believed to play a central role, interaction effects in transition metal chalcogen materials, which have been "rediscovered" in recent years and are turning up new surprises, and new theoretical and computational approaches which may lay the groundwork for future transformative discoveries. We have also reserved a session at the end for late-breaking developments, which will be filled closer to the conference date.
