The NQS2014 aims at providing a forum for the novel quantum states in condensed matter with particular emphasis on correlation, frustration and topology. The interaction of physicists working in these fields will stimulate others, and may give new inspiration for further development. Each participant in NQS2014 can stay at the Yukawa Institute during the workshop with an individual office. They can take ample time for discussions with other participants in the comfortable climate of November-December in Kyoto.



Here is the tentative program of the week. (*: to be confirmed) More details (title and abstract) will appear soon.

  • The workshop will be held in "Panasonic International Auditorium" of the Yukawa Memorial Hall.
  • The typical schedule of the regular workshop days is as follows:
    • morning session: 10:00 am-12:30 (two seminars)
    • afternoon session: 14:30 pm-15:00 (one short talk)
    except on Tuesday (Wednesday in WS-A) where poster sessions are scheduled in the afternoon.
  • The mini-symposium on each Friday starts at 9:30 am.
  • Poster preview session (about 3-4 min. for each) before the poster sessions (15:00-17:00).
  • For the titles and abstracts, see archive page.
