‘Trends in the Theory of Quantum Materials 2023’, continues the very successful bilateral workshop between Japanese and Swiss physicists that has been held on a yearly basis since 2009 except for the 2-year hiatus due to the pandemic.

It aims at bringing together both communities of condensed matter people (mainly theorists) working on quantum materials and beyond.

The workshop also aims at nurturing scientific exchanges, collaborations, and friendships among young physicists between the two countries.

Main topics of the workshop

  • Quantum spin systems, multiferroics, and spintronics
  • Topological phases of matter
  • Dynamics of (open) quantum systems
  • Dirac and Weyl fermions, topological semimetals
  • Quantum entanglement and its applications
  • Computational correlated physics and its methods
  • Mathematics of topological phases and topological field theories
