The inauguration conference Frontiers in Quantum Materials 2012 will be held at the Fields Institute, Toronto, Ontario, Canada from September 24-26.
The conference will bring world-leading researchers working on novel emergent properties of Quantum Materials. Recent development in this research area has seen increasing interplay between theoretical and experimental efforts. The topics of the conference include theoretical and experimental studies of strong correlation, frustrated magnets, topological phases, quantum spin liquids, superconductivity, correlated oxides heterostructures, and multoferroic materials. Some of the ideas behind these research efforts also reflect deep connections to topological properties of the ground-state quantum-wavefunction of strongly interacting many-body systems.
This is an inauguration conference for the Center for Quantum Materials at the University of Toronto. This conference would also initiate close collaboration between the newly established Institute for Basic Science in Korea, Canadian research network in Quantum Materials, and other centers of Quantum Materials in North America.
The conference is sponsored by the Center for Quantum Materials, the Fields Institute, and Canadian Institute for Advanced Research.
