Rationale and Scope: Quantum Materials is an emerging field of research that encompasses a broad range of studies in strongly correlated systems and applied materials physics. The breadth of the field calls for interactions among the different sub-communities. This workshop aims to bring together top experts from a variety of areas to highlight the recent achievements in each area, and to provide a forum for cross-talk among the subjects. The workshop will revolve around the following focus areas in the overarching field of Quantum Materials:
— Unconventional Superconductivity
— Quantum Criticality
— Ultracold Matter
— Low Dimensional Systems
— Energy Materials

We expect to receive funding to support junior participants from outside of Rice University. Please email ginny.w@rice.edu for details.

We encourage abstract submissions for the poster sessions. The submission deadline:
***October 3, 2016***

The workshop is sponsored by Rice Center for Quantum Materials ( http://rcqm.rice.edu ).
