The XVIII Training Course in the Physics of Strongly Correlated Systems will be held in Vietri sul Mare, Italy, from 6-17 October 2014.

During 2 weeks graduate students and Post Doctoral researchers will meet experts in condensed matter physics. This year the focus will be on topological insulators, which actually represent a promising route towards quantum computation and quantum technology.

Prof. B. Andrei Bernevig (Princeton University, USA) will deliver lectures on “Matrix product states in topological states of matter and beyond”. Prof. M. Zahid Hasan (Princeton University, USA) will focus on “Topological insulators and superconductors: materials, models and experiments”. Prof. Nicolas Regnault (Laboratoire Pierre Aigrain, ENS, France) will talk about “Fractional quantum Hall effect and fractional Chern insulators”. Dr. Michael Wimmer (Delft University of Technology, The Netherlands) will introduce the participants to “Quantum transport in low-dimensional topological materials”.

In the morning, each senior researcher will deliver a lecture. The afternoon sessions will be devoted to training and the young researchers will be introduced to specific problems, and guiding them in their solution, and helping them to become more familiar with different approaches and starting new collaborations. The participants are also encouraged to present their own activity.

The training course is hosted by the International Institute for Advanced Scientific Studies [IIASS].

Further information is available on the website dedicated to the training course.

ELI-ALPS 2nd User Workshop

The 2nd User Workshop of the Extreme Light Infrastructure – Attosecond Light Pulse Source [ELI-ALPS] will be held in Szeged, Hungary, from 11-12 September 2014.
The ELI-ALPS based in Szeged, Hungary, is part of the ESFRI roadmap that will be the first international facility with the mission to make a wide range of ultrafast light sources accessible to international user groups. ELI-ALPS is expected to be partially available in 2016, while it will become fully operational for user-based research in 2018.
The 2nd User Workshop focuses on...
