About the Workshop

An important theme lying at the frontier of physics is to discover and understand new quantum phases of matter beyond the standard textbook classification. In the past decade, several new families of real-world platforms, such as topological insulators and semimetals, iron-based superconductors, geometrically frustrated magnets, as well as ultracold atoms in optical lattices, have been realized and extensively studied, which significantly advances our knowledge of the so-called “quantum materials”. Topology and frustration represent two novel features that are frequently encountered in these exotic examples. This workshop aims at bringing together active researchers in this broad field. By exchanging and discussing observations of a wide range of systems, we expect that this workshop will help share different perspectives on quantum materials and motivate further investigations.

This workshop is a part of the traditional summer program held annually at the Institute for Advanced Study, Tsinghua University. No pre-registration is required. Any interested student or researcher is welcome to attend the scientific sessions by showing onsite a valid student's or employee's ID.
