International Workshop “Quantum Matter” at Benasque, Spain

2014-06-15 - 2014-06-27
Registration deadline: 
2014-04-10 (All day)
Benasque, Spain

The focus of this workshop is on strongly entangled phases of quantum matter, including topics such as the classification of quantum phases, topological order and anyons, quantum Hall liquids, spin liquids, topological insulators and superconductors, and exotic gapless phases. 

Following the tradition of the Centro de Ciencias de Benasque Pedro Pascual, this workshop aims at creating a highly interactive atmosphere in which to discuss recent developments and challenges. It will consist of a light schedule of only a couple of talks per day, possibly with a higher concentration of talks one day per week. In addition, there will be pedagogical lectures and discussion sessions in the afternoons. Note that the Center offers comfortable office spaces for everyday work as well as large meeting rooms. 

Benasque is a beautiful Spanish village located in the heart of the Pyrenees. Close to Aneto Peak, the highest mountain in the Pyrenees (3,404 metres -- 11,168 ft), Benasque has plenty of hikes and other outdoor activities to offer
