UQM Summer School

The Online School on Ultra Quantum Matter will take place from August 10-14, 2020 .

As the COVID-19 coronavirus continues to evolve, precautionary steps are being put in place to minimize the risk associated with this outbreak.  For this reason,the organizing committee for this event as decided to host this event virtually and for one week only.  Interested participants should still register for the event, so that they may receive the links to the talks.

This summer school is aimed at advance graduate students and postdocs working in theoretical condensed matter physics, quantum field theory, theoretical quantum information science, theoretical atomic/molecular/optical physics, and related areas.

The school will focus on highly entangled states of quantum matter (Ultra Quantum Matter - UQM) that go beyond the Landau paradigm of classical orders. Through a combination of pedagogical lecture series and research talks, advanced graduate students and postdocs will be introduced to the forefront of UQM research, with a broad scope ranging from fundamental characterization and classification to designs for realization and testing of UQM in the lab. Topics will include classifying and characterizing topological and fracton matter, quantum field theory dualities and other approaches to strongly coupled gapless phases, quantum information perspectives and related numerical tools, and overviews of novel platforms to realize and probe highly entangled quantum states in the laboratory.

This program cuts across traditional sub-disciplines of theoretical physics, and the school will feature talks from experts in condensed matter physics, high energy physics, quantum information and atomic physics.

Visit the School on Ultra Quantum Matter website for details and application information.

The application deadline is March 22, 2020. Successful applicants will be notified by April 30, 2020.

This event is supported by the Simons Foundation, through the Simons Collaboration on Ultra-Quantum Matter.
