YIPQS long-term and Nishinomiya-Yukawa memorial workshop

Novel Quantum States in Condensed Matter 2017

October 23 - November 24, 2017
Yukawa Institute for Theoretical Physics, Kyoto University

On this workshop

In 2007, Yukawa Institute for Theoretical Physics (YITP) started new project "Yukawa International Program of Quark-Hadron Sciences (YIPQS)" funded by Japan Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology. In this project, YITP hosts two or three long-term workshops each year, and invites leading experts to stimulate discussion and to foster collaborations among workshop participants.

This time, we hold "Novel Quantum States in Condensed Matter 2017 (NQS2017)", as a successor of the two long-term workshops held under the same title in the past (NQS2011 and NQS2014). Our focus in this time is on topological phases and related topics, which include strongly-correlated topological phases (e.g., spin liquids), topological insulators and superconductors, quantum entanglement, topological phases realized in non-equilibrium settings, and so on.

During the workshop, participants stay at YITP with desks and other facilities. They can take ample time for discussions with other participants in the comfortable climate of October-November in Kyoto.

Just after the workshop, a satellite workshop "Oxide Superspin 2017 (OSS2017)" will be held from Nov. 25 to 29 at the same venue.
