CEMS-QPEC Symposium on Emergent Quantum Materials

CEMS-QPEC Symposium on Emergent Quantum Materials

January 18-20, 2017
Tokyo, Japan

CEMS Topical Meeting


The CEMS-QPEC Symposium on “Emergent Quantum Materials” will be held on Jan 18-20, 2017 at Ito International Research Center, The University of Tokyo.
This is the 16th workshop since 1996, in a series held by JRCAT, AIST-CERC, ERATO, FIRST and RIKEN.

The aim of this international workshop is to gather leading and active researchers and to provide a forum to share the latest information and ideas on emergent phenomena in correlated quantum materials, and discuss future directions.

In particular, we focus on the following subjects:

  • Topological magnets, topological insulators, topological superconductors, Weyl systems
  • Interfaces, layered systems, superstructures
  • Gigantic responses from strong correlations
  • Unconventional superconductors
  • Quantum criticality
  • Spintronics
  • Emergent phenomena under extreme conditions
  • Non-equilibrium physics

This symposium is the joint activity of

  1. RIKEN Center for Emergent Matter Science (CEMS)
  2. Quantum-Phase Electronics Center (QPEC), School of Engineering,
    The University of Tokyo
